    Yes, the first two choices (too and much too) don't make sense. It should be much and too much.

    I think Tdol goofed this time. You can spend much money (a great deal of money) , too much money, and much too much money, but you can't spend too money or much too money.

    Re: Much & Too

    So... What does "spent much too much money" mean? Is it in use these days?

    Pardon my understanding?

    I'm innocent (for once)- the third choice is 'much too much'.

    It's like 'far too much'- way over my spending limit.

    Way too much money! (What Tdol said.)

    (Pardon my confusion?)

    Hey, if everybody got everything the first time we wouldn't have anything to do.
