List Rules Small things that make you happy.

The simpler, little things in life that make you feel content and happy are easier to come by and oftentimes more meaningful because of their simplicity. What are the small things that make you happy? Are you content to sit and enjoy a cold brew after a long day in the sun, or do you just get giddy thinking about having the house all to yourself? Vote for your favorite things, and add anything that you think is missing. You can also re-rank this list in any order you want.

You don't have to win the lottery and become instantly wealthy or even gain a small financial windfall like $100 to enjoy the simplest pleasures in life. They are almost always free of charge. Sipping morning coffee, enjoying the peace and quiet before the crazy day begins can be one of the best pleasures ever. Getting a (free) library book and reading a novel that can change your life costs exactly nothing (other than your time).
