10. Conversational English: money expressions

  1. Read the story below and explain the meaning of some phrases about money:

    Jenna is always broke because as soon as she gets flush, the money burns a hole in her pocket. She spends every penny on unnecessary things, and then remembers that she hasn't paid the bills and hasn't bought the food. This is when she needs to tighten her belt and live frugally the rest of the month. However, she talks to her friends and borrows money from them. Sometimes she scrapes a few pennies together to buy a lottery ticket in hopes she would strike it rich, but she was never able to hit the jackpot. Her family can hardly make ends meet themselves, so they rarely help her.
