according to this iVillage Health article, a new study says it can improve your satisfaction with life.

"Like other studies have found, the analysis revealed that life satisfaction -- the belief that your life is going well -- increases as income increases, individually and in the country overall. But researchers also found that although overall positive feelings increased somewhat along with rising income, these feelings were much more strongly linked with other factors, such as feeling respected, enjoying autonomy and social support from friends and family and having a fulfilling job...."

having some disposable income would make a LOT happier right now. I agree that I don't think being filthy rich would make most people significantly happier, but being able to do things that you enjoy does. I can't afford to do anything and haven't been able to for a couple years. I can't go on vacation, I can't get a new outfit, I can't get massage, nothing. And I'm definitely not happy.
