English idioms : Live within your means

Dialogue


Eric: It’s such a shame we are so broke. Everyone is splurging out there; I feel like two cents.

Carl: Tomorrow is our pay day and we’re going to be loaded. Aren’t we?

Eric: What we earn is just a drop in the ocean compared to Steven.

Carl: That guy is born with a golden spoon in his mouth. It’s time you came down to earth and learned how to live within your means.
