    Either I spent too much money last night or I spent much too much money last night. Either is bad news and it probably means that I don't have enough now. Of course, that depends on whose money I spent.

    Neither is good news, but 'much too much' is worse.

    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    I asked them to cast their votes. "Much too" had too many votes (and still does). Nobody says (that I know of) "I spend much too money". The others make sense, but that one doesn't.

    (You can have too many twisters, but not too much twisters.)

    (Thanks again, Mike.)

    :)
