The Buzz: Spending more money for happiness

They say the best things in life are free. But, when it comes to spending that hard-earned cash, we should go for life experiences!

According to a recent study out of Cornell University, the pursuit of happiness, when it comes to our money, is all about those experiences like vacations or concerts.

A psychology professor at Cornell has been studying the question of money and happiness for more than two decades now. And he says, “we buy things to make us happy, and we succeed. But only for a while. New things are exciting to us at first, but then we adapt to them.”

What do you think? Would you rather spend your money on material items? Or life experiences?
