    I am in the money. - My financial situation is good. I'm doing very well.

    I make ends meet. - I am able to pay the bills and survive.

    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.
