I do not know for sure what you mean by "the money," but I think that what you are thinking of is that Mildred Montag wants to spend money on getting a fourth wall for their parlour.

Mildred is totally into the "families" that she watches on the parlour walls.  Just two months ago she had a third wall of their parlour made into a TV wall and now she wants a fourth.  She tells Guy that it will only cost $2000.  He points out that that amount comes out to one third of what he makes in a year.  She doesn't think that it's really all that much money and she thinks he ought to be more considerate of her needs.
