Money in dreams represents things of great value to you, but such dreams are not necessarily about monetary value.
For Jung, money is a symbol of the power required to achieve spiritual objectives. According to Freud, it is a symbol of an orderly or obsessive personality.
If symbols associated with money, riches and wealth—such as cash, precious jewels, treasure, expensive houses and cars, and winning lottery tickets—appear in your dreams, try to identify what money means to you in a non- materialistic sense. That this symbol appears in your dreams suggests that you need to assess what is important to you in life, as well as being aware of what price you are prepared to pay for your actions and desires.
It may be that gold does not represent the precious metal to you, but rather someone who has a heart of gold or who is a winner, just as a dream of treasure might represent the people you love in your life, a wealth of knowledge or a treasury of ideas. Do you associate money with freedom, power, desirability or your own personal worth? Do you believe that money can buy you happiness? Thinking about such questions should help you identify the things you really value in your waking life and you may in turn start to question the real value of your previous goals and aspirations.

In dreams, shops suggest what you want or think you need in waking life.
If you are in a shop you know, then you are aware of what you want from life, but if it is an unfamiliar shop, then you need to open your mind to new possibilities.
Shops and stores are places of interaction, whether this is the exchange of money and goods, or the communication between the salesperson and the shopper. In dreams, they therefore represent things you desire in life and the manner in which you go about getting these things. A supermarket, for instance, suggests a wide range of choices, a village store represents the essential things in life, whilst a store or website selling a range of odds and ends—such as an antiques store, an auction site on the Internet or even a car-boot sale—suggests the small details of everyday life that are often overlooked. Your dream may be urging you to pay attention to these.
If your dream was quite mundane and you saw yourself doing your weekly grocery shop, then your dreaming mind may simply have been processing a memory or reminding you that you need to go shopping. Alternatively, such a dream may be suggesting that you are taking good care of your basic emotional needs. If, however, you had a dream in which you could not decide what to buy, this may be referring to some kind of confusion or indecision in waking life.
If someone you know in your dream transformed into a sales assistant, your dreaming mind may have been commenting on the emotional cost of your relationship with them.
Bear in mind, too, that whilst stores, supermarkets and shopping malls are places of opportunity and choice, they also threaten potential exclusion and humiliation if you do not possess the necessary funds; your feelings about going on your dream shopping trip should indicate whether or not you are feeling empowered or denied in your waking life.
If you dream that a shop is closed or that you have insufficient money, this may indicate that you feel the things you want from life are unattainable. Your dream may be telling you to lower your expectations and set more realistic goals. Finally, if your idea of heaven is to go on an exclusive shopping trip and spend loads of cash in luxury stores, then a dream of having a day doing just that may be simple wish-fulfillment....

For most of us shopping is not simply a necessity but a favorite pastime.
It is a source of pain, pleasure, recreation, and, at times, “quality time” with family or friends. Depending on the details in the dream and its emotional background, dreaming about going shopping may have several different connotations. Generally, if shopping in your dream is not a source of great stress and confusion, it suggests that those things which you need are available to you. Your environment may have readily available emotional, psychological, spiritual or physical support. However, you may need to learn exactly where to look, how to select what you need, and when to make a wise investment. This dream calls upon you to know yourself. Before you can ask for or get what you need, you first need to accurately identify it.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

Shopping often represents the possibilities in life, the decisions you can make, the variety of attitudes or activities from which you can choose, or something for which you are searching. The image of shopping presents a view of your life’s prospects and opportunities; it also represents the exchanges you are prepared to make to satisfy your desires. What you are shopping for may be relevant.
If you are shopping for food, you need sustenance but if you are shopping for clothes, you need protection. How much you buy in your dream may indicate your ability to take advantage of opportunities.
Not finding the item you want or discovering that the store has sold out of it may express frustration at not getting what you want out of life. A much- reported shopping dream involves the panic at closing time. Not being able to buy all you want before the shops close suggests anxiety that life is too short to achieve all your ambitions. Shop windows are symbols of opportunities in waking life that may be out of reach. The image may evoke frustration or envy that you are missing out on the good things in life, but it can also remind you that you still have the choice to seek out more accessible and affordable items....

Shopping centers or malls are associated with making choices and in many dreams they serve as the backdrop for meeting friends, or trying to find the right item for yourself or someone else. Typically, these dreams feature friends and sales people; this suggests that such dreams aren’t associated with work but are about your social life.
If you encounter obstacles or get assistance on your dream shopping trip, these may symbolize real-life forces, both internal and external, that play a role in the choices you make in waking life and the satisfaction you experience. Women and teenagers tend to have this kind of dream more often than men or children, and the theme for these dreams tends to be choice and identity, and the ability to stay true to yourself whilst also satisfying the needs of others.
