book review – happy money: the science of smarter spending

It turns out that money can make you happy, after all. The bad news is that the happiness is generally short lived.

Happy Money aims to teach us how to spend money in ways that will bring greater happiness.

As you may have heard, money spent on experiences is valued more highly than money spent on stuff. Even when stuff seems great to begin with, the novelty of having it wears off quickly.

In addition, money spent to create happy moments should be doled out, not made a regular activity, according to the authors. The anticipation of an activity can generate as much happiness as the actual event.

The book is easy to read and contains ideas that you actually might use. What would you spend money on today that could bring you a shot of happiness?
