  • I am happy when I go to bed at night in a quality mattress with quality pillows sheets and comforter I am happy but I am warm and clean with things that will give me a good rest. For a long time I was poor and did not have these things so yes it does make me happy even though they will wear out I wouldn’t use the word happy more grateful but I do get a smile on my face

  • This was very inspiring. I sound like a broken record by now, but after listening to you I always feel back on track, and aware of what’s more important in life.

  • Buying unnecessary items will not make you happy. HOWEVER I love my sewing machine. It brings me joy I use it and it brings contentment when I feel fed up. Sewing is a wonderful hobby and the craft I have learnt brings me immense joy. I have given away sewing items I did not need or use which gives pleasure to someone else.

  • Gttalove the Rogen. Fun Fact: Emanuel Swedenborg was actually born in Sweden. Download his latest book “Heaven & Hell” for free at You no it makes NO cents.

  • I absolutely agree 100% what joshua has just been saying on his video, iv’e been saying and thinking exactly the same, i just wish people would follow suit, i’m sure the world would be a much happier place if people where less materialistic, there is so much greed about as well, human nature perhaps, but i refrain from all that and remain happy, so that others around me can share as well.

  • Whether good or bad quality of stuff, I take care of my things. Whether or not a higher price or on clearance, I take care of it. Finding something that truly totally fits me (being a 4X size person) whether on clearance or regular price…..that is what makes me happy,
    though it’s sad that the money could have went to something maybe needed like next week, next month, or even much later. But I do save money and not buying anything until I actually have to……also makes me happy

  • I recently bought some tablets for my friend’s kids who can’t afford them. They were ecstatic and I know they’d put them to good use, it feels so much more rewarding than spending money on my own nieces who have everything.

  • Buying good food & then cooking with my beloved ones!
    Definitely worth a splurge and I don’t mean fancy exotic foods/ “super foods” but organical, seasonal & regional foods from the market: It makes me so happy:)

  • Maybe not ‘happy’… but certainly things made me ‘happier’.. and yes, I have reached a ‘saturation’ point… I bought most shit you can buy, and I now I spend less and I only buy things that I really really like. I enjoy looking at them and using them… also, I regret not paying enough attention to buying quality over quantity before…

  • Controlling that “if this, then that mentality is probably one of the healthiest things I could do for my mental health, money unrelated. Great video as usual!

  • I found the part about how much life our stuff takes from us inspiring…it’s like �� omg I’m letting STUFF take parts of my life when I should be free to enjoy it instead ��.

  • I agree so much with you but I’m finding it especially difficult at the moment as all the “experiences” that normally make me happy are not available meeting family and friends, visiting places, live music, the sports that I play…

  • My husband & I walk everyday around the neighborhood to exercise. He keeps picking up stuff neighbors toss out. When confronting him, he always have excuses of how he’s going to use the item. Our garage is full, our backyard is cluttered. It’s a never ending battle & I don’t know how to make him change his attitude.

  • Obviously Joe’s playing Devil’s advocate. I can see his side. But he’s neglecting the fact that many people are not naturally built to achieve those standards. But if you look at a billboard and base your own standards on that, you shouldn’t be allowed to breed.

  • Great video as usual. Josh, not only do you have a gift to educate in a gentle way but your focus on the camera lens is always so fierce �� it’s like I’m being lectured all over again by my dad. Oh, the memories.

  • No, but neither does poverty.

    ” As of 2020, Joe Rogan’s net worth is roughly $50 million, making him one of the richest comedians in the world.”

  • Too general. There are some really helpful items. I’m disabled and my phone allows me to remotely turn on lights, program sprinklers and heat/AC. I also love my scanner that is really fast and has many great features to allow me to go paperless. I love my mini washer because I don’t have to wait several days to wash a load and it has simple controls. I love my garden because I can get fresh organic produce. All my irrigation supplies enable me to water 50 plants all at once. With my phone I can say Hey Alexa turn on zone 5 for 3 minutes. This computer lets me watch vids like this and buy stuff online that I need. I love my power banks that can be charged by solar because I get free electricity and I don’t stress when the power goes out. I’m always minimizing and creating simpler systems but some things are necessary to do this and I really appreciate that I have them. Even experiences involve things a game board, a car or plane to travel in. Someone has to own them. Having less is great but there are a few really great items that improve my life. Appreciating them as gifts from God makes me happy.

  • Joshua I don’t appreciate a prompt to like the video. If it’s a great video I will like it in my own time. People should be able to freely choose when they like a video.

  • I always wonder if when Graham says “smash the like button” they consistently smash the dislike button, just cause.
    I’m tempted to but I respect Graham much so haven’t.

  • This song brings me some nostalgia because I used to bathe with that song to go to my old school and because many of my friends are no longer with me, that’s why

  • Word of the day: incongruent adjective
    1. Made up of parts or qualities that are disparate or otherwise markedly lacking in consistency.

    Nice one Graham XD

  • Spend at leisure be broke forever! That’s been my motto for the past 18 months and I’ve saved a lot of �� ��…. I have been buying what I need, selling or donating what I don’t and upcycling others ‘throw outs’ to sell! �� I’m enjoying the progress and loving the challenge.
    We are doing up our home, where we can we are using recycled materials, this makes me happy as I love, clean and orderly, also we are covering a part of our outside area which will be great for family gatherings, even if it rains. I think it’s about being conscious, deliberate and grateful. ��

  • Concerts are hands down the #1 experiential thing that I buy regularly. I never regret it, and I always enjoy myself so much. Definitely worth it for me to buy a concert ticket and see my favourite band than by that pair of shorts.

  • Ha ha.. exactly at minute marker 1:26 to 1:27, I’m listening to you, and we BOTH said, “it is so true!” Jinx or synchronicity, what you speak to has also been my experience, along with others who find peace in living simply.

  • your liar no money doesn’t bring happiness you also can’t take it to the grave unbelievable how people think it does bring happiness

  • Joe many don’t have the money or the knowledge to get those kind of bodies…also many don’t want them…doesn’t mean they’re healthy

  • 1. They always fade after sometime
    2. There’s always something new that we could buy
    3. Buying things always add worry / anxiety to our lives
    4. Everything we own requires maintenance
    5. Everything we buy costs more later on than initial purchase price
    6. Others are never impressed with our purchases
    7. Someone always has more than us
    8. Our purchases don’t bring us content/ happiness
    9. Experiences always make us happier than possessions

    TYIA☺️ love your channel✌️

  • Hey Joshua, I appreciate your persistence in making videos that remind that buying things does not bring true happiness.

    The world is pummeled with commercial advertising every minute of every day. I would love to see one day, someone posting a video every minute of every day why your next goods purchase isn’t going to bring you the love and fulfilment you seek.

    What this world needs is more anti-commercials!

  • Joshua, this video of yours needs to be played in schools/colleges. I think it’s better when kids are educated with these values. Good habits should start early.

  • My husband and I bought each other annual passes to Disney for Christmas one year. Since then, we set aside money for trips for birthdays, holidays, and anniversaries. We also purchased a map for our wall that we mark with places that we have been together and separately.

  • Money is really the last thing that could make me happier.
    Living below the poverty line is thought to be harsh, not even livable. But it could not be further from the truth!
    Half of my income goes to renting my big enough studio apartment, a third to living and the other 1/6th are spent on classroom material.
    Of course I do earn more than that, but every month I save half of my income for future use. If I have children someday we’d all be better off if my partner or I would stay with the children.
    If I ever need a car I’d be better off saving for it rather than paying (more!) afterwards.
    When I’ll buy my land, the more money I can put in it without borrowing, the more I save (positive interests instead of negative!).
    If something happens andi cannot work anymore, I know I’ll have enough to keep on living for at least 3 years (I am just starting my career).
    Living simply is easy… Living in clutter is hard.

  • Not getting it Joe, there’s stuff inherent to being human,such as “reference” bias, comparison is natural to humans, envy is natural but we’ve created machinery and shit systems that are making us sad and sick. We can’t acknowledge their effects because it goes against commercial freedom?

  • Observing what normal / basic people enjoy / think / do seems like a terribly good predictor of what your experience will be if you’re an extraordinary person living an an extrordinary life.

  • Money can buy happiness. Without money you have limited options, look at the homeless. With little money, you slave away your life and fight day by day and have little time for your interests. When you have money, you can experience the greater things in life and that means pursuing your passions and doing stuff you love. Money can lead to happiness.

  • This guy is making it very clear. But also he’s not understanding that mental programming and mind control are very real. That’s part of why humans are this way. How can that be stopped? We need to prevent that from happening over and over as well.

  • Excellent points, as usual.
    One further, hinted at by Thoreau.
    Many purchases require our exclusive TIME to enjoy them; DVDs, Apps, Gaming etc and our time, above all, is limited.

  • money just allows you to do the things that make you happy. And that can be different for everyone. For me its just being able to be independant from my parents and have my own home, occasionally vacation, and possibly get married and start a family in the future.

  • I can see buying stuff can be an addiction, but if it is useful and real want it then i see worth a get. i seen videos where people have shoped and what got never really watch and used or woren any lol. just be sure bills paid before get wants anytime.

  • Materialism in its definitive form is mostly false and should be. But regardless, I believe money can solve a good portion of my issues. That’s why I wanna be financially free and to have extra money that can help me travel. Also, maybe buy me some experiences. I’ve always wanted to sky dive, I’ve always wanted to drive a Ferrari, I’ve always wanted to eat pizza in Chicago and New York, I’ve always wanted to do many things. Money can help me with that.

  • A good yearly planner is always a benefitical purchase to me.

    A really good reusable water bottle (contigo)


    And a steamer for my clothes has been a god send. Saves me so much time since I got rid of my iron!

    A few other things: nice glass meal prep containers and my swifter vacuum (perfect for pet hair)

  • Due to having poor memory,
    im wondering if photos and videos would be a great way to remember moments and could do with a written list of things tbh

  • I want you to be HAPPIER ��
    ��Be Kind w/ Halsey OUT NOW ��

  • Also, similar to the “buy your time” thing: buy your nerves! My father said once “if you can afford it and it saves you mental energy, go for it”, e.g. cab rides to the train station if you have a lot of luggage and taking the bus would be a hassle, and the like.

  • I think the problem I had with the “ are you beach body ready “ wasn’t the fact that the woman looked amazing it’s the fact she looked waay too skinny, it looked more like she had an eating disorder, no muscle mass, should of had a woman with a juicy bum some curves and arms that don’t look like sticks.

  • What about buying plants? I’m obsessed with house plants. I’m always buying things that related to plants ��. They all make me so happy and I love them all every single day ��

  • I just want to earn enough to not worry about bills and support a family. Not with material goods. And memories with loved ones rather than being a workaholics for only a little bit of more money.

  • I am filled with gratitude that the intrinsic things bring me joy much more often than external things. Serenity and inner calm is more precious than gold.

  • I think a sense of accomplishment grants me more happiness than any money in the world, but I do agree that people need a certain amount to at minimum not be struggling with poverty and have shelter and food.

  • Money = security, better food, better living place, better education to give to their child’s, better environment, better medical stuff etc = happiness

  • Wow.. the one about buying time really struck home. I am at the place where I can afford to have someone clean my house but I still think of it as somehow wrong to pay someone to do something I can do.. meanwhile I am constantly stressed by watching valuable weekends sucked away by chores…

  • Things that make me happy to buy are rescue pets, thrift shop books, concert tickets, plane tickets, rose oil, spending money on my baby brother

  • Learn to play an instrument, become more creative, transcendental meditation chanting, i think these are things that can diminish the hold materialism has on people. In a world without spirituality there is only materialism left. We need to believe in the possibility of the unreal again. Life has got too serious.

  • I like to buy experiences! It’s literally what I spend almost all of my money on:) I buy travel and concert tickets and other experiences. My theory is that this way I’m investing in my current and future happiness because when I’m feeling down I think back to the awesome times:)

  • I remember having “critical thinking” as a part of our curriculum in grammar school. We we’re asked how we would solve a problem and discuss different strategies in achieving desirable results. In this society, we are taught how to think and what to do. Some of us are fortunate to have parents or guardians who’ve raised us to be inquisitive and challenge the system. You have to be able to form your own opinions and thoughts in order to “think for oneself and sift through information.” Ppl who are striving versus ppl who are thriving have different mindsets. Money is a tool. It’s easier to go with the “current” than it is to go against it. If we spent more time learning about self, we’d be happier and at peace.

  • Buying a bike was more of an experiential purchase than I thought it was going to be, because I was able to join a community of cyclists, now friends, and ride everywhere… it was also a good investment in my overall health.

  • You are on such a great mission and this video was something other than the bookish material and quite practically helpful. Thanks a lot ����

  • they did a study on this where one group played mario kart and another played mario kart but were paid to do so

    the group who was paid to do it rated the gaming session is less fun

  • Wow! Fascinating comment from you, Joshua, and from Randy Alcorn and Henry Thoreau. A fantastic example of more things not making you happy is the final scene of the movie “Citizen Kane”. That was a great lesson for me and I’m sure for other people too. A local business where I live sometimes had wise saying in their radio ads and one of them was “Happiness is not having what you want but wanting what you have”.

  • I know exactly how it feels to lose a dog, ive had my dog zoe ever since I was an infant and she was a pup, we had to pit her down at the age of 12 which was aboit her time to go

  • My family live in the Philippines and I have been brought up in Australia. The thing that made me the happiest was buying them gifts and taking them out to restaurants etc on my last visit. It brought me so much happiness <3
