If I had $1,000,000 to spend, how would I spend it!? Before or after I pass out from having my hands on that much money!? LOL
First of all, let’s be honest. We are selfish beings. I would use the money for me first. Second, I am a very realistic person. So, first and foremost, I would get us out of debt. That means paying off money I owe to people, paying off both of our vehicles, paying off hubby’s school loans, my school loans. I want to live debt free.
Next, I would purchase the house I live in currently and remodel what I want. This is not an extravagant cost. I do not want a lot- just new floors and remodel the kitchen a bit. So really, we’re not talking a lot.
I would also put $100,000 into each one of my children’s college funds, plus probably $10,000 in their savings (each). From there, I would probably divide the money into savings for ourselves (and our retirement) and give the money to charities and/or help those that need it more than I do.
Really, a million dollars sounds like a lot of money, but it’s not. But we are selfish beings so I would take care of me and my own first, but I am the type of person that always says “what if”. If I were in a position, I would want someone to help me out, so I would help out those who need it more than me. I am not 100% selfish!
What would YOU do with a million dollars!?
