Self Help Fallacies
- Positive self-affirmations

How to extract the most happiness from money
- Spend your money first on whatever product or service; allow days or weeks to elapse before taking delivery of product or service. When shopping as opposed to in a store; buy online, select the slowest form of shipping so you have at least several days fantasizing until you actually get the product. When purchasing dinners or local services use a daily deals website where you pay first, days, or weeks before getting to use the actual coupon.
- Spend your money on experiences, not things.
- Don’t make impulse or sporadic purchases. Avoid buying on credit.
