Some more great news about why having less and pinching pennies can be beneficial in the long term. Less stuff may lead to more money in the bank and increase romantic and happy feelings with your partner.

Makes cents. (Could not resist insertion of corny pun!)

Says May’s issue of Women’s Health magazine:

Couples who don’t think money and possessions are important have stronger, more satisfying marriages and fight less than their materialistic counterparts, according to a new study of 1,734 couples in the Journal of Couple & Relationship Therapy. 

“Materialism may cause spouses to spend money unwisely, which creates financial stress in the marriage,” says study author Jason S. Carroll, Ph.D., an associate professor of family life at Brigham Young University.

Pinching pennies + love of love + less clutter + less debt = A richer union
