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

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.

Buy a house. Buy a car. Open a bakery. Start great cowherd funds for my kids. Start an origination I've been wanting to start.

I'd buy a bigger house with more storage space, fenced yard and a deck. I would buy myself a whole new wardrobe of clothes and shoes. Then continue to live like we do now

Definitely save it up for the kids - their college funds and futures'. After I had a comfortable amount for that, I'd possibly splurge on a vacation home and a luxury car. (:

I guess we'd live like we normally do.  Probably save more.  I wouldn't eat out all the time though, that would get old.  I'd buy better (and more) food for the house, lol.  Buy all of us some clothes.  Who knows what else.

I probably wouldn't change my lifestyle much but I would donate a lot more.

Buy a house and working vehicles. Past that, just save.

Buy a car, buy a house. Save for my child's future. Have more babies. Buy a vacation home. Spend a tiny bit on clothes for myself. Stock up on groceries. Feel financially secure, and save as much as I could.
