Spending on possessions may fill your closet and pantry, but spending on intangibles fills your soul.

If I ever have trouble sleeping at night, I close my eyes and think of Clash, my dog who was named after the rock band. Giving him a home was the best decision my family ever made. He had the proud, handsome face of a Jack Russell with the wobbly behind of a Dachshund. He only ever wanted to chase a tennis ball. He swallowed the ball, which cost hundreds of dollars to have it removed. But he was worth every dollar.

Why? Happiness is like a game of pass the parcel — and your spending should be, too.
