Yes, I just saw someone say recently, "Money can't buy happiness, but it sure can alleviate some misery" and I agree. Studies show that there is a certain level of money that will be different from place to place depending on cost of living and whatnot, that up to that point increased money does increase happiness, because it really just means that it's easier to get your basic needs and wants met. But after that point, it doesn't increase your happiness any more. So basically, once you have your home, food, clothes, transportation, kids in a good school, etc., and can treat yourself sometimes - that's all you really need and becoming extra rich doesn't make you extra happy.
