Money can’t buy me love. Or, as it turns out, a lot of other stuff. There are some things that are just more important than money. Here are a few.

1. Sleeping In On The Weekends

Would you rather sleep late on Saturday or drag yourself back to work at 9 a.m. to make a few extra dollars? Yeah, I thought so.

2. The Newest Gadget

People keep shelling out cash for the latest iPhone, so I can only assume it’s more important than the few hundred bucks it costs.

3. Having A Good Job

Having a slightly larger paycheck isn’t worth holding down a job you hate. For most people.

4. Skills

If you’re skilled at what you do, the money will follow.

5. Followers And Likes

Your online reputation is pretty dang important these days for everything from getting a job to getting a date. Untagging those risque weekend pics and getting more followers on Twitter seem to be on everyone’s to-do lists.

6. Life Experiences

Your experiences can’t be replaced for anything. They’re what make you unique and they’re what make your life special. Go camping, get your heart broken, make up a secret handshake even though you’re way too old for that.

7. Fun Experiences

Don’t skimp out on fun just because it can hurt your wallet. Skip going out for lunch tomorrow, and use that money to upgrade your skydiving package. Or, you know, use it toward whatever else you want to do.

8. The Last Episode Of Your Favorite Show

Big fans of any show would pay just about anything to see the ending. You wouldn’t want to be the only one who missed the Breaking Bad finale.

9. Freedom

Financially, politically or emotionally, freedom’s an important thing to have. Plenty of countries have a lower cost of living, but you probably wouldn’t want to move there.

10. Games

Go spend a few more hours playing Candy Crush. That’s definitely more important than money.

11. Knowledge

We pay enough for college in this country. Education better be more important than its price tag. Otherwise, we’re all doing it wrong.

12. Family And Friends

You can’t buy new friends, at least not ones as good as yours. Yours are the best.

13. Health

You need your health, first and foremost. Money can help pay for fancy doctors and herbal remedies, but nothing will replace a clean bill of health.

14. Time

To be young again! Whatever age you’re at, enjoy it now. You’ll never be this young again.

15. Karma

No one knows your Reddit username but you’re still oddly proud when your repost gets six upvotes. Go ahead and gloat.
