Actually, money CAN buy happiness (if you spend it on a cleaner or babysitter, that is)

Trine Jensen-Burke

To most busy mums, having more hours in our day would indeed make us happy.

And guess what – this might just be one of those cases where throwing money at something will indeed end up making you happier.

Yes, really.


And while you might think this only applies to those with money to burn, you’d be wrong.

Sounds accurate? I know. Maybe it’s this idea that we should be able to do it all ourselves that stops us from parting with money in order to save time? The thing is – if more time equals more happiness – is it not worth the investment?
