What would you do with the money if you found out you won $1 Million Dollars plus $5000 every week for life?? I have a short list (and a long list). And millions of dreams.
Here is where I would start:
Pay off Bills/Mortgage/Nursery School
I would start with the most boring off my list and pay off any outstanding bills, including our credit card bills. Then, I would use a bit towards our mortgage. Not sure of the percentage, but enough so we could relax. And rounding out paying for things, I would set aside enough for another year of nursery school.
Put a chunk towards a College Fund
Then, I would set aside and continue to pay some towards a nice college fund for Ana. I am not sure how much a private college will be by the time she is ready to go, but I am sure it will be expensive.
I would set up a home recording studio with the same equipment as Audible.com uses. A nice, new mike, a great mixer and a glass studio with soundproofing.
A new store or business?
I have always wanted to open a boutique or online boutique for cute clothing and accessories and this chunk of money would help me with a down payment or money for merchandise to get started. And advertising.
Then, I would go on a little splurge with an alloted amount, maybe $5000 and buy myself some new shoes, a new Marc Jacobs purse, or maybe invest in another classic Chanel. Spend a day at the spa, and some jewelry. Of course I would find a gorgeous black wrap DVF dress, since I cannot find my own (I packed it and never saw it again when I moved). I would not feel so guilty shopping all of the time if I had the $5000 a week...that is for sure!!
So what would you do? Would you be frugal? Would you lavish yourself and your family with presents and a big party! I would definitely have some sort of party for my friends and family too!!
Well, why dont we stop dreaming about this and ENTER!!!! Someone has to win, it might as well be you or me ! Why are we still talking about it??
