Buy Experiences, Not Things

Spending on experiences is a good investment, but other recent studies showed that you can get even more when you share those experiences.

One study even found that having unique experiences may lower the rewards reaped. And a shared bad experience led to better overall feelings than being the only person to have a good experience. Another study may partially explain why: Shared experiences are amplified. So whether your experience turns out good or bad, you’ll feel it more when you share it.

Get the most bang for your buck by including friends/family in your experiences.
