Aah, the pure bliss, with adrenaline pumping through your veins and the ultimate euphoria – knowing you have more money in the bank than you could have ever imagined.
Our Top 10 Wishlist
Pay of our debt- Including my car payments. It will help boost the credit scores. Also, help our immediate family members of their debts too.
Take out a mortage and buy a house. Again, it will help boost the credit. We decided we would buy a house close to Disney World and land upstate NY. I could even tell you the exact places, but I don’t want anyone knocking on my front door.
Finance a car (pay it off in a few months) – Something NICE to get us from point A to B. We have dream cars, but they’re not a necessary.
Setup Trust funds for our two kids and our three nieces. Each school year they would get an allowance for supplies, school functions, and clothes. However, in the clauses they HAVE to work, or they will not receive any money from it.
A new wardrobe. We can’t remember when we actually brought clothes for ourselves. Our sneakers can talk to you if you look closely and our pants have rips in them. We put every last penny to the boys and bills. We’re very much a paycheck to paycheck family.
We would still work. My husband said part-time to keep him entertained or he would open a couple fast food places, and I would still blog – be a Young Living Distributor (because I love their products so much!) and maybe, just maybe, open my event planning business again.
We would donate to a few charities. We love Make-a-Wish, St. Jude, and ASPCA are the top of the list.
Take our actual Honeymoon trip alone. We wanted to go to Fiji, but ended up going to Disney World with our son, Chase. It turned into a nice family vacation.
Travel with the boys and let them see the world.
Save, Save, Save! We would be so happy not having to worry about what our bank accounts look like and be able to do things without worrying if it’s going to screw up billing that week.
With Powerball hitting $430 Million you can’t help but imagine. I know I’m not the only one; am I right? Would you take the one cash out option or overtime? With roughly $143-$160 Million after taxes and whatnot that you get to keep what would you do? Would you donate? Pay off debt? Buy a house? Travel the world? Buy expensive cars? Kids through college? Or would you live moderately? Would you quit your job? I want to hear the comments how you would spend the money? Leave comments below and tell me what you’re dreams are?!
