Buy Experiences, Not Things

Essentially, when you can’t live in a moment, they say, it’s best to live in anticipation of an experience. Experiential purchases like trips, concerts, movies, et cetera, tend to trump material purchases because the utility of buying anything really starts accruing before you buy it.

Fantastic piece on the Atlantic regarding spending money and happiness. Meshes well with some of my thoughts on spending money.
