MONEY EXPRESSIONS (2): meaning and examples

Good morning. Today we continue with our money-related expressions.

Today's expression is: money does not grow on trees

Meaning: something that you say which means you should be careful how much money you spend because there is only a limited amount.

Example 1:
David: Dad, can I have a new bike?
Father: We can't afford one. Money doesn't grow on trees, you know.

My mother often used this expression with me when I would ask her for money as a child, so it is quite common.

I hope you have a good day.
