They say money can't buy happiness — but maybe people just haven't been spending it the right way. A new study suggests your cash is best spent on free time.
In a survey of more than 6,000 adults, researchers found those who spent money on time-saving services, like cleaners and landscapers, reported greater life satisfaction, no matter their income.
And other scientists argue paying it forward brings the most satisfaction. For example, one Harvard University study found happy people give more and that the more people give, the happier they are.
