As the New York Times recently reported, a new study conducted by a group of San Francisco State University researchers has found that these spendthrift food types may be happier because of it. The researchers asked 10,000 people to fill out a survey about personality and purchasing habits. The respondents who spent their money on things -- practical or no -- tended to be less satisfied with their lives, while those who spent more money on experiences like meals and travel were more outgoing, bigger risk takers, and more content. Screw that car repair -- SFoodie is contemplating making reservations at La Folie as we speak. Who needs brakes?
