“What’s One Thing You Would Treat Yourself To Regularly If Money Was No Object?” (33 Answers)

Most of you are probably familiar with that world-renowned saying that claims that money can’t buy happiness, but is that actually the case?

According to a piece from LendingTree, an online loan marketplace for various financial borrowing needs, including auto loans, small business loans, personal loans, credit cards, and more, 33% of Americans say money makes them happier than love does. 

A decent percentage, isn’t it? 

It all varies from person to person, of course – however, one thing we know for sure is that money does make us happier, but only up to a certain point. You know, before you go mad like a fair bunch of those A-list celebrities. 

Nevertheless, every single one of us has thought about having all the cash in the world, and a Redditor that goes by the name u/GrouchyResolution974 has given us the opportunity to lurk into other people’s dreams.

The thread managed to garner over 22K upvotes as well as 12.4K comments containing some pretty intriguing answers.

#3 Traveling

Travel. No big plans around trips but just deciding to spend a week or two in another country because I saw it mentioned somewhere and it sounded nice. With money as no object airfare hotels food luggage and all that wouldn’t matter as expenses to plan or save for and it would be so awesome to feel that freedom to just go somewhere whenever the idea strikes you.

#4 A House

I’d buy a house…so tired of how I’m treated as renter but I mean…I CAN’T buy so I don’t get to choose my own paint or have pets or whatever other rules that come up with. THEN your rent is twice what the mortgage would be if you owned. Less ownership MORE restrictions. Blows.

#5 Getting Whatever They Want On A Restaurant Menu

Now that I do have money, the one thing I treat myself to is getting whatever I want on a restaurant menu. If I want appitizers, I don't try to get the cheapest, just what sounds good.

#12 Neighborhood Parties

When I was a younger man, I once won $500 in a local raffle. Not enough for anything life-changing, but enough that I wanted to do something memorable. So I spent it on several dozen pounds of meat, sides, briquettes, beer, and a permit, and threw a neighborhood BBQ. About three dozen people showed up across the 4 hours we were allotted, and we all had a great time eating, drinking, and playing Hammerschlagen (hit the nail into the stump).

I'd throw a neighborhood party once a month if money was no object.

#20 Buy Whatever They Want Without Feeling Guilty

Whatever I wanted. A little treat at the shop, a cute but impractical piece of clothing, a dinner out maybe.

I'd just like to be able to buy something I want for no other reason than because I want it, without having to do all of the mental gymnastics and algorithms about whether it's "worth it" or what I might need that money for later on as I regret the purchase. It must be a really liberating feeling.

#23 Flights

Flights. I don't have the money to regularly fly places, and wish to be able to fly home and see my family for the first time in 2 years

#24 Private Flights

If money was truly no object, private flights.* No more flying commercial.

Slightly less ambitious - personal trainer, personal chef, maybe a personal assistant for all the little annoying things one has to do in life.

*Geez people, it's a fantasy... The math is simple: {odds of me flying private} x {carbon output of private jet} = 0.
