I was pretty poor once, living paycheque to paycheque. Every month was spent trying to find a better job, trying to spend less than $50 per grocery run, trying to figure out which bill I could go without paying and not get dinged too hard for.
That is stressful, scary and uncomfortable. Creditors calling, eating macaroni because it's all that is left and wearing the same ripped pants every other day sucks.
Then I got a better paying job (that I hate)
HAPPINESS LEVEL INCREASED SOOOOO MUCH!!!
I can pay bills, eat dinner, go see friends, go visit my family members and not worry about it killing me financially.
I may hate my job but it gives me benefits and now I can finally afford to get my horribly painful wisdom teeth removed!
money bought my happiness.
