Can money really buy happiness?

Okay, so we have all heard this question before. I know that for a fact we're all told that money doesn't buy happiness. But when you actually think about it can it? With money you can buy so many things you want that could make you happy. But you can't buy the fundamentals in life. I just want people's opinions on this cause I always hear such contradicting answers.

    Apr 30 2013: No. Contentment can. Even a hobo can be happy if he/she is content with what they have. This comes from gratitude, knowing the fact that there are even people who are in worse conditions.

    Okay so /what/ makes me happy? If that's 'having things that give people impressions that......' or something like that, then it's my concept of happiness that's wrong. :)
