Study: Experiences make us happier than possessions

If you are already using Traveler's Joy, you probably knew this. If you are unsure about including Traveler's Joy as your wedding registry, let this article convince you!  The study is full of interesting conclusions with this being my favorite:

"While most people were generally happy with the purchase regardless of what it was, those who wrote about experiences tended to show a higher satisfaction at the time and after the experience had passed."

So I guess it's fair to conclude that the satisfaction someone receives from a new kitchen dish is short lived compared to a honeymoon experience they can share with their family and friends for the rest of their life. This being said, register your honeymoon!
