If you made more money, would you be happier?

Posted by   + Show Post

University of Michigan economists Betsey Stevenson and Justin Wolfers have discovered that for people of all economic circumstances, when income rises, people say they are happier. (http://now.msn.com/more-income-makes-people-happier-says-study)

I'm not sure. I stay home and my husband definitely makes enough, but sometimes I think I would be happier if I had a job and my own income coming in.

the simple answer: yes. More money equals less stress and worry about paying the bills and more time and resources to provide great food and memories for my family.

 I wouldn't want to be mega-rich, but I would like to be at a point where we could make ends meet and have a little left over to save up for things we want or emergencies. That would make me very happy. Right now, we're on a tight, tight budget.

Now that we are making ends meet and paying down our debt, I am happier- less stressed! :)

Yes! We decided last year we were tired if living with debt so we are doing the Dave Ramsey thing. Anything that could hurry the process along would be a dream come true.
