As many of us turn our thoughts to returning to the day job or in the first week back at the grindstone, I’m sure I’m not the only one wishing for a major windfall! (If only I bought lottery tickets!)
Remember when one million dollars seemed such a large amount of money? Not that I’d sneeze at it if someone offered it to me now, but it wouldn’t go as far as the good old days!
What would you do with a windfall like that? Buy a house? A boat? Retire? Pay off debts? Give money to loved ones or charities?
Personally I’d buy myself a campervan and travel. For as long and as far as I could – Australia and overseas. There are so many places I want to visit and experience. I’d keep writing but definitely ditch the day job.
Ah, I can but dream! Let me know what you’d do with the money!
I’d buy a flash new apartment to live in and rent the one I own now. Then I’d travel around Aus and overseas. I’d also buy two new cars.
Not a hard question to answer at all!
Sounds like you’ve thought about it before. Bernadette 🙂
My hubby would say invest it and live on the interest. We would probably buy a pop top caravan for adventures, and take the kids to Vanuatu and Fiji. And buy Mum a new car. And anonymously surprise a few friends with what they need (again, it’d be cars for at least two people I know of).
In my dreams, I’d upgrade to a house that has room for an art studio and office (just for me, lol). By the beach, of course. And I’d hire a weekly cleaner. Yeah, that million would disappear quickly.
Investing it would be the sensible option, but not nearly as much fun 🙂
Not surprisingly, I love your house idea – particularly the studio office and cleaner!
