Frugalistas Frugalistas

If you won a jackpot...

If you won a lottery jackpot, do you think you'd still be a frugalista?

I think I would have to be, because shopping has always been a strong addiction for me. Only for the past year, I've finally been able to control my shopping habits.

Yes I would. I've always been frugal, winning the lottery couldn't change that.

I dream about this (but never play) & I dream big -- like the biggest jackpots ever.

I would hire a financial planner/investor.

I would meet with our pastor & ask him to get a financial planner in order to manage at least a 10% donation.

I would quit my job.

I would pay off every debt we have.

I would secure eduction & trusts for our children.

I would buy acreage.

I would build our house & my dad's house on our land -- nothing extravagant, just exactly what we need & nice.

I would give our car to a family in need.

I would continue driving my van.

I would buy DH a truck.

I would vacation with my family every year.

I'd still live frugally -- shopping sales, vacationing on budget, living on a budget, but we'd live comfortably & without worry in regard to money.
