What would you do with $5000 a week for life? ETA...

Posted by   + Show Post
I would still live in a house that was modest but had space for my girls to have their own rooms and a large fenced yard for them and the pup to play in. There's only one thing I'd splurge on.

I would eat out literally every day except for holidays when I actually like to cook traditional meals.

ETA...If you could give $5000 a week to someone else, who would you choose and why? If we are allowed to divide the prize I think I would have to choose my parents because they always take care of others and my mom is on disability and my dad should be able to retire already. The other half would go to my in-laws because I would love if my MIL could just quit her job and live well for once in her life. She has always volunteered either in church or her community center with kids of questionable background. She never takes for herself and gives as much as she can. I don't care about FIL one bit but I know it's a package deal if I give to MIL.

Be very comfortable. Live like we do now, except maybe a slightly bigger house. One more bedroom, one more bath. Bigger yard.

LOL I hope it ME who wins that!  I know what I would do build my new smaller retirement house! It would be small, but very fab.  I have the spot picked out- the view would be awesome. French doors to a flagstone terrace, part of that screened in...

Everything about the house ready for the old old age times... ease of use, so I can stay there as long as possible.

I'd take nice trips many times a year with the hubby and my sisters and my galpals, and even sometimes (hahaha) with the grandkids! When I felt up to the chaos!

The one luxury I would love is a NICE car, like a Lincoln or Lexxus... SO quiet, and with the best stereo system in it!

I'd finally get rid of our 40 year old furniture and actually finish this house we are in before just giving it to our youngest son, who has expressed "I want the house when you don't, ma"

Custom build a house. Buy new veichles. Save up for IVF and adoption.

Pay off all my debt, move to NYC, and eat out almost every night because I HATE cooking. I would still use coupons and still thrift shop though.
