15 Things You Can Buy That Actually Improves Well-Being

In 2024, it’s increasingly challenging to spend your hard-earned money wisely. From impulse buys to things nobody needs, throwing away cash is shockingly common. However, you’ll be happy to discover that smart and savvy purchases exist and go a long way toward improving your quality of life! Today, we’re examining everything you can buy that improves your well-being and is worth every penny.

1. An Abundance of Device Chargers

Is there a worse feeling than your smart device only having a few minutes of battery remaining and you can’t find your trusty charger? Countless people, especially those with larger families, reveal that the best purchase they made to improve their day-to-day lives was purchasing device chargers in bulk. By strategically placing them around their house or apartments, they ensure a quick device top-off is always in the cards!

2. A Bidet

I’ve only experienced a bidet a handful of times. Still, every time I’ve used one, it elicits the same reaction: “Oh my goodness, this is the greatest thing ever!” Is there anything more satisfying than the feeling of a bidet at work? I think not. I’m not alone; bidet users are prime examples of satisfied customers. Once you go bidet, you can never return to regular bathroom habits.

3. A Furry Friend

Although I’m not a pet owner, I experience extreme jealousy whenever I hang out with anyone with a lovable dog, cat, or other pet. By all accounts, buying a pet has a shockingly powerful effect on a person’s well-being. You can’t put a price on companionship and unconditional love, but purchasing a furry friend is the closest thing a person can get to pure, unadulterated happiness (unless your pet turns out to be a psychopath, of course).

4. An Instant Pot

Nobody likes spending more time in the kitchen than they have to (especially when you’re not a good cook in the first place). For people lacking the cooking skills that make established chefs jealous, buying an instant pot is an ingenious purchase that makes your life in the kitchen infinitely easier. “Throw ingredients in the instant pot and make a meal out of it” becomes a mantra everybody can get behind. Talk about a time-saver!

5. A Decent Bicycle

Regardless of whether you’re a kid or an adult, nobody can deny the fun factor of riding a bike. By investing in a quality bicycle, you can level up your fun factor even further. Bikes have come a long way in recent decades, and some are even equipped with modern technology to make traveling from point A to point B practically effortless. I think it’s safe to say that there’d be many more happy people in the world if more men and women rode bikes!

6. A Gym Membership

Let’s be honest: More people should be going to the gym. There’s no such thing as being too healthy, and the benefits of working out daily are well-documented and, frankly, incredible. Gyms exist for every budget, from inexpensive places like Planet Fitness to high-end boutique gyms that people use as excuses to socialize. However, one thing remains constant: Going to the gym regularly can physically and emotionally change your life for the better!

7. A Reliable Vehicle

For some, the thought of buying a new car or truck is unappealing. There are many downsides to purchasing a new vehicle, from the upfront cost to high monthly payments and everything in between. However, buying a reliable new car (complete with a factory warranty) gives you something many drivers crave: Peace of mind. Knowing your vehicle won’t mysteriously stop working as you try to get to work is a beautiful feeling, and a new car scratches the itch for anybody wishing to improve their quality of life regardless of cost.

8. A Universal Remote

Sometimes, the smartest purchases that improve your overall quality of life are the most obvious. Many people confess that buying a universal remote for their audio-visual living room makes their lives remarkably better. Universal remotes can control video game consoles, televisions, attached devices, sound bars, and more. Suppose you’ve struggled to find the correct remote for a specific device. In that case, a universal remote will change your habits permanently.

9. A 3D Printer

People who earn extra income through a side hustle swear by their 3D printers! From printing small plastic accessories, figurines, collectibles, and everything in between, 3D printers allow creative people to make money from their passions. Thankfully, pricing for most 3D printers has dropped significantly in recent years, making them far more attainable for people on a budget. They used to be prohibitively expensive, but that’s not the case in 2024!

10. Great Bedding

According to countless people on internet forums, investing in high-quality bedding can do wonders for your well-being! Buying ultra-comfortable sheets and pillows and combining them with an excellent mattress is an expensive proposition. Still, it will pay off in the long run. You spend over a third of your life asleep, so you might as well ensure your bed is as comfortable as possible! 

11. A Robotic Vacuum

Vacuuming has been one of the most tiresome and time-consuming household chores for generations. Fortunately, modern technology has brought an essential invention to our homes: Robotic vacuums! Innovative companies like iRobot have brought small, automated electric vacuums to market, and their premise is simple: Common folk like you and me don’t have to waste time vacuuming anymore because robots have arrived to save the day!

12. A Range Hood

Let me explain what a kitchen range hood does. It essentially sucks up all smoke, particles, and smells of whatever you’re preparing. It ensures those things don’t permeate your kitchen. If you’re anything like me, your kitchen smells of whatever you cooked for a solid eight hours before finally dissipating. A range hood solves that problem pretty efficiently. If that’s not life-changing, I don’t know what is!

13. A Musical Instrument

There’s something about learning to play an instrument that inspires many men and women to their core. Buying my first guitar was one of the best decisions I ever made, profoundly affecting my well-being throughout my life. Music is fantastic, and I’m happy to admit that I play a small part in making music come alive in my own way. Learning to play an instrument, like learning a new language, is highly gratifying and makes you proud of yourself!

14. Blackout Curtains

Even if you break your budget and purchase ultra-comfortable sheets, pillows, and the world’s best mattress, light entering your bedroom could prevent you from getting that all-important good night’s sleep! Fortunately, blackout curtains are here to save the day. If you’ve never experienced these bedroom accessories, you’re missing out. They block an astonishing amount of light to ensure you get the sleep you deserve, and many people confess it’s one of the best purchases they’ve ever made.

15. An Amazon Kindle

For many, reading books is one of the genuine joys in their lives, and purchasing an Amazon Kindle makes the reading experience infinitely more manageable. While we all love the idea of hundreds of books lining our shelves at home, that’s not always practical. With an Amazon Kindle (or a similar e-reader), thousands of books can reside on the device! E-reader editions of popular books are also often less expensive than their physical counterparts, which makes Kindles a fantastic value proposition.

Never judge a book by its cover. You can say the same about movies.

Some of our favorite films are the ones we went into with no expectations. Despite this, they blew us away from start to finish.
