people there cared a little more but i tell you this because it made me just as happy as if i found a hundred dollar or even thousand dollar bill instead which also would have been pretty exciting but not exponentially more knowing this about yourself can play a huge part in your finances whenever we consider buying were usually fixated on the price but what were really after how much joy this new thing will bring us bills and such excluded we're pretty good at knowing what these are but were not so good a paying attention to the alternatives that can also bring as much joy into our lives for example i'm just as happy drinking beer at home as i am at the bar which is true i'm just as happy hey with friends as i am going to the movies i'm just as happy driving my beat up cadillac as i was my twenty five thousand dollar suv i'm just as happy wearing gently ease close as i am new clothes
i'm just as happy eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as i am hitting a new restaurant i'm just as happy getting my hair cut at home as i am at the barbershop i'm just as have watching a show on my medium size tv first my old big screen tv on even more shocking i'm pretty much just as happy having a stake haitian as i am a vacation does that mean i still don't eat out or by new clothes or drink tasty beers for ten times the price well i love doing those things to hover when comparing the happiness levels only there not that far part if at all so i do more of the free cheap stuff and continue having a sweet quality of life to something to think about out there and about the sweet doing your thing no shame and enjoying the niceties out there but remember there's plenty
alternatives they do the same trick at a fraction of the cost were lucky to have such options up let me say again we're lucky to have such options big acclamation boy up and we have a p s here and then i am little bullet point after ps here's another post i wrote last year along the same lines if you want to keep the juices flowing although this is being read out loud so doesn't really help here here's a little isolation are the little asterisks a thousand dollar bills actually exist and in fact a hundred thousand ones do too though they are extremely rare most of the larger denomination u s bills were used by banks and the federal government for large transactions between themselves and not the general public though the general public now and a lot of these bigger bills as collectible items and they cost a lot more than faced i too there you go that's my first time ever reading anything out loud hope
