Even though most people will attest that women are classified ‘shopaholics’ and will purchase items because it makes them feel better, everyone, both males and females, has at least one item that was not a gift that has changed their life.
You might have to think about it for a moment or two, but there will be something that you bought which has the effect of making you happy long after the excitement of having the new item has worn off. The article on Mint Life lists eight different purchases that people have made and why the purchase has changed their life.
The items that provide long lasting happiness range from motorcycles like the Harley Davidson or muscle cars like the Ford Mustang all the way through to memory foam mattresses. Regardless of your most appreciated purchase or the reason why you purchased the item the fact is that you have something you have bought which still brings a smile to your face and the overall feeling of happiness.
Happy shopping purchases are more than the new suite you bought when your last partner walked out or the animal you bought because you were lonely, they are regular purchases which you worked towards or rewarded yourself with long after you were supposed to make the investment.
Here are the items that people mentioned as their happy purchase in the article:
– Harley Davidson
– A new couch
– iPhone 4
– Fitbit Fitness Tracker
– Executive Chair
– Mountain Bike
– Memory Foam Mattress
