The secret to true and lasting contentment is learning how to spend your cash.

Don’t just spend on—invest in yourself!

Learn how to use your money to buy:

More Time
Less Stuff
Better Health
Stronger Relationships
Greater Confidence
Rewarding Hobbies
Life-enhancing Skills
Financial Security
Peace of Mind

How many times have you been told money can’t buy happiness?
It’s time to abandon this old chestnut because money is a powerful tool, which can in fact buy you all of the things you never thought it could: peace of mind, a healthier lifestyle, more time to do the things you love, stronger relationships, security, and loads of fun.
In a world where we’re bombarded with the temptations of conspicuous consumption, personal finance columnist MP Dunleavey presents an antidote to empty spending. Through quizzes, worksheets, real life examples, and sound financial advice, MP shows you how to stop throwing your money away on fleeting pleasures like the hot new designer handbag, or the biggest house on the block, and start investing in your own portfolio of happiness.
Reallocating your assets to reflect what really satisfies you is the way to enjoy a life of true wealth. Money Can Buy Happiness is for anyone who believes finishing happy is more important than finishing rich.
