How much money do you need to be happy?

I see a lot of posts about money, or lack thereof. A lot of people seem to think that money is the source of all their problems. I'm just curious - how much money do you need to make YOU happy? And I'm talking about a minimum amount.

I don't have a number. As long as I have clothes on my back, a roof over my head, food in my belly, and a healthy family I'm just fine.

The bills paid and food in the cupboards and fridge/freezer.

Enough to pay my home, my bills, and my food. I wouldn't say money is the source of all my problems...but I got 99 problems and money would solve about 82 of them lol.

I am fairly happy with how much money my husband makes but I would probably want a paid off house, finish our solar panel installation and have about 2 million before I felt comfortable for my hubby to retire.

None, money isn't what makes me happy. Actually money is more likely to make me unhappy.

$3k a month approx. This includes paying all bills plus spending money and savings. DH makes $2500-3k approx so we're about there. 

I'm not going to be like oh money isn't what makes me happy, yadda yadda. Money makes me ALOT less stressed which allows me to be happier when I spend time with my family because I'm not freaking out about money constantly. $3k a month would allow me to do that and then some.
