make two kinds of purchases.Sounds good, doesn't it. But is it really that obvious? What do I buy when I buy a book or note-taking software? A thing or "stuff," or am I buying an experience? Well, first of all, I'd like to think that I am buying something that will afford me an experience, or rather, that it will help me to learn or experience something. I do agree that experiences might be a better bet than mere stuff, but as I just said, I am not at all sure that "stuff" and "experiences" can be that cleanly separated. Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, I don't think that experiences can really be bought. It must be made by us. It's like love that way ... Call me old-fashioned.
We buy things: clothes, cars, and home goods.
We buy experiences: meals, vacations, and movies.
Research shows that experiences are the much better buy — if you're looking to maximize the happiness for your dollars. 
The very claim that that "buying experiences makes us happy" shows how far consumerism has corrupted us—or has it only corrupted the "happiness experts"?
My resolution: I am going to go for the priceless experiences in 2015!
