    It makes me feel good and comfortable to be financially secure, it does not make me happy.

    I love shopping therapy, however I am just as happy window shopping/just looking as I am buying and sometimes I am happier not spending the money

    Hell yeah material things and the means to by them makes me VERY happy! I can be happy without as well, but I love money and pretty things! They don't KEEP me happy, I couldn't be happy with money and nothing else, but it's a definite funk-lifter.

    To a degree I guess buying stuff makes me happy. I think I'd say it's more enjoyment than happy. And i don't need money or stuff to be happy.

    I do love shopping though and have a huge spending problem and expensive taste. I tend to buy things with out looking at the price tags. So I might not be the best person to speak on the subject!

    Being comfortable makes me happy. I would being lying if I were to say that I'd be happy not being able to pay my bills.

    Shopping puts a HUGE guilt on me after I shopped. I love to shopping and do retail shopping once a while, but for some reason, I guilt on the things I bought. Ugh, hate it!

    I can't window shop it's to much of a tease. I always end up buying what I want.

    For a moment it does, but it doesn't keep me happy for long enough.

    The more money I have in my bank account, the less stressed out I feel . It's just like, if anything happens I'll be able to take care of it so I'm able to calm down enough to pursue the other things in life that actually do make me happy
