The Benefits of Spending Your Money on Experiences, Not Things

Money can buy happiness, but only to a point. Once you purchase your must-have item, you adapt to it and the positive feelings fade. Instead of purchasing a physical item, an experience gives you a more sustained state of happiness. Spend your money on things like recreational activities, travel, exploration of nature and cultural enrichment. Here are the benefits of valuing experiences above all else:

The Benefits

Matthew Killingsworth, a Harvard-trained psychologist, has found in his research that the satisfaction of owning something comes as anticipation or nostalgic longing. However, a content mind comes from moment-to-moment experiences that can either be excitedly anticipated or fondly remembered.

These purchases include travel, concerts, movies, outdoor activities, sports and attending events. Conversely, the anticipation for a possession brings about anxiety and impatience.

Jet.com

Earlier today we learned that Walmart Inc. is purchasing e-commerce startup Jet.com for $3.3 billion. One of the stipulations for the deal is that Jet.com founder Marc Lore would stay on to run Walmart’s online retailer division.

When Jet.com was launched in 2015 the company was said to be the Amazon killer. While that hasn’t quite happened, the company has witnessed serious growth in a short period of time. Jet.com reported over $15 billion in sales during 2015, which was slightly ahead of the $14 billion reported by Walmart’s online division, but well behind the $99 billion that Amazon.com made from products and services.

The growth by Jet.com came at a cost. The company spent over $20 million in marketing expenses in order to position itself as a rival of Amazon.

So what does this deal mean for Walmart? It means they are serious about not only fighting off attempts from Amazon to dominate the market, but they want to cut into some of Amazon’s market share.

According to Sucharita Mulpuru, an analyst at Forrester Research Inc. Marc Lore is one of the smartest people in e-commerce. “Wal-Mart still struggles with things like third party marketplaces which Marc and his team have successfully built.”
