It's called inflation. The value of our money goes down, so the prices of goods/services increase. This can get very bad.

This picture I was once shown really touched me. It's from the 1920's when inflation in Russia was terrible. This lady is burning her money because the money burns longer than the amount of firewood she could buy with that.
