MONEY MATTERS


The following expressions are three figurative expressions for "money":

to have deep pockets: For investors with deep pockets (= a lot of money), the Berlin property market is attractive.

to line one's own pocket: They are interested in lining their pockets first and serving the people second. You can't blame them for wanting to line their own pockets (= making money in greedy and dishonest way).

to cost a pretty penny: Mary's dress is real silk. It must have cost a pretty penny (= cost an arm and a leg = cost the earth = cost a lot of money).

Hello good day to you!

I’ve read your blog and find it very much interesting. Can you do me a favor? Can I ask you to post my link in your blogroll/sidebar? In return with that I’ll write an article for you which are related to your blog. In this way, we both can benefit since there would probably more visitors in your blog and mine as well. It would be my pleasure if you will accept my request. Thanks in advance!
