Weren't we always taught that money can't buy happiness? I know I was told that from a very young age, but that lesson may not be true! 

There's a new study out from Purdue University though that proves there IS a price tag on happiness. I bet that you're thinking it is some crazy, high amount of cash. But that's not the case at all. 

This study found that people felt the best when they were making anywhere from $60k-$75k per year.

They also looked at the figure that would make people feel like they finally hit their financial goals and considered themselves to be successful. That number was "just" $95,000 a year, according to the study.

I am a bit shocked that it wasn't again much higher, right?

The researchers found out that have more money left people feeling less satisfied and always wanting to make and have more.
