Joy of experience is stronger than joy of purchase.

“people’s satisfaction with the things they bought went down, whereas their satisfaction with experiences they spent money on went up.”

“Our experiences are a bigger part of ourselves than our material goods,” says Gilovich.

“something that might have been stressful or scary in the past can become a funny story to tell at a party or be looked back on as an invaluable character-building experience”

“shared experiences connect us more to other people than shared consumption.”
