Is it correct to say "I don't weigh much about money" to mean that I do not care much about money? Is it awkward?

    No it is not correct, and would merely puzzle any readers. In short, it's wrong. Commented Jun 28, 2022 at 22:59

No it is wrong, it will only conguse readers, I have provided other alternatives, but they are usually used when calling someone that word, and not yourself.

"cheapskate" is a viable option here.

a miserly or stingy person especially : one who tries to avoid paying a fair share of costs or expenses


a selfish and unfriendly person who is not willing to spend or give away money


You rarely think about money (and just the idea of creating a budget makes you nauseous). In extreme cases, you believe that money is inheritably bad or evil. You feel strongly that money shouldn't influence important decisions in life.

So you can you are indifferent to money.

  • Why not just "I don't care too much about money".. you could even follow it with the last line, "Money can't buy me love" & you've nearly got a song ;) Cheapskate & Scrooge are the complete opposite of what the OP asked, & the last, whilst fine alone is badly twisted by the unusual definition beneath it.

  • OP accepted my answer because he felt it answered what he wanted @gonefishin'again. He would not have asked the question in the 1st place if he wanted I dont care too much about money as the answer

  • We can't really guess why the OP accepted a poor answer. Perhaps, as often happens, people just accept the first answer that comes along thinking it must be correct. BTW, I guess you completely missed the joke. Commented Jun 29, 2022 at 7:42

    Surely a miser or a Scrooge cares too much about money - that's why they don't want to spend it! Commented Jun 29, 2022 at 8:06
