  • B- water but I'm going to recommend a filter instead of a water service. We got an 8 stage reverse osmosis filter for under $300

    The system lasts forever. You change the filters on the cheap every 12-18 months. I LOVE mine. LOVE it. You do not have to hook up the UV. It is gravity fed. No risk of leaching plastic or BPA.

  • Where we live you can buy 5 gallon jugs and fill them at walmart for less than $2 for Culligen and the cooler heating water system is around $100 at places like Lowes and Home Depot.

  • If water is an issue, then B. Otherwise, I'm fine with filtered tap water. :-D That being said, I would get a video game console, because everyone could enjoy. :-)

  • I would get a used tv, a used game console with a lot of used games and then buy a rainwater reservoir for 'natural' water (although I don't live in a part of the world where 'unnatural' water is, so I'm not sure what that's about...)

    The joy of used stuff is you can often also get a couch and a new lamp and 15 new books for the price of one item new...

  • None of the above. I would put half in our retirement account and half in our daughter's college fund.

  • I'd be tempted to do A ...but then I'd get smart and probably add it to some other $ to make a bigger payment on my school loans.
