Happiness costs $75,000
heartrobb saidCan I get it cheaper at Costco?
paulflexes saidThat story has a whole lot of plausibility.
$75K/year is not a lot of money, though it is more than I currently make. And although I consider myself happy for the most part, getting behind on bills when emergencies arise definitely puts a toll on happiness. If I had the money to cover emergencies and keep bills paid (which would take ~$75K/year), my happiness level would definitely increase. At the current time, I borrow an average of $10K/year from my mom for medical and vehicle emergencies...and that puts an incredible toll on my happiness when it happens (such as now, with my sciatica costing me/her out the ass).
