    But having money would help with at least half of the things in that list ;)

    plenty...

    time to relax (cos now I don't need to spend it to earn money)
    positive attitude (less likely to be negative ;))
    quality time (I have no kids)
    peace of mind (from money problem and anything money can solve)
    work-life balance
    a worry free day (from money problem and anything money can solve)
    clean arteries (got money to get doctor to clean the clog if really needed)
    A good hair day (pay hairdresser!)
    everything you may want (including that waterfront house with a lap pool)
    selflessness (can give more)
    happy memories (can go to nice places)
    a great idea (outsource it)
    wisdom (outsource it)

    ....

    The majority does not require even a penny. You can be living in absolute poverty, but yet live a rich and full life.

    Luck... otherwise know as 'when preparation meets opportunity'. Sometimes you need money to make that 'lucky' buy.

    But I do agree there are a lot of things that money can't buy.

    I'd disagree with a few of those. Money can buy:

    8. Purpose in life (E.g. Philanthropy)
    16. A new beginning (E.g. sea/tree change)
    25. Happy memories (E.g. overseas family holiday)
    38. A second chance in life (E.g. medical operation)
    41. Happiness (This is subjective of course)

    I've tried being poor and I've tried being rich. IMO being rich made me happier.

    Yep; a coupla weeks at Falls Creek when there is 2 metres of snow would make me seriously happy and give good memories.

    Of course; being dead poor and broke, and only able to rustle up a sausage in bread down at the local park BBQ every weekend on yer day off as your only fun - is comparable.o_O

    Sometimes these "you don't have to be rich to be happy" threads make yer head spin.

    So many of that list are actually the very things that money does buy but it's a cool list none the less!

    There's quite a few related to time and quality of time, and money certainly can buy that.
    Must have been written by someone who still needs to work for money.

    A mullet. You can't buy a mullet as it grows naturally.

    Money can't buy back......time
    Time that you've spent in the past with a loved one who's no longer here
    Money can't buy back yesterday
    Money can't buy back your youth (misspent or otherwise;))
