Please help me with the usage and meaning of these expressions
I am in the money.
I make ends meet.
IN THE MONEY
1. Also, in the chips. Rich, affluent. For example, When he's in the money, he's extremely generous to his friends, or After that box-office bonanza, she's in the chips. The chips in the variant presumably allude to poker chips.
2. Placing first, second or third in a contest on which a bet has been placed, especially a horse race. For example, My luck held today, and I ended up in the money.
MAKE ENDS MEET
Manage so that one's financial means are enough for one's needs, as in 'On that salary he had trouble making ends meet'.
--I've also heard make both ends meet; maybe they mean the same.
