How did you spend your last $20?

Did it make you happy? 

You might be interested to know that science shows money really can buy happiness.

And it’s not about amassing greater wealth.

Dr. Michael Norton, a member of Harvard University’s Behavioral Insights Group, says money can bring us increased happiness if we shift our focus from earning more to spending differently.
