What's the first thing you would buy if you won the lottery?
I would buy a vehicle... not a new one though. A high sitting vehicle a couple years old with a V8 engine and a lot of luxuries (electric locks & windows, heated seats & side view mirrors, remote starter, etc.). My car is on it's last leg but I am gonna run it until that last leg collapses!
I take this to mean a huge lottery, multiple millions. If then, I would pay off everything I currently own. From threre, you all know me, I want to travel. As I am planning my trips I would look for a a larger house, in a better neighborhood, with new furniture. I don't like my furniture at all.
I'd keep my current house in case a family member wants to take it over.
If this is a smaller lottery, like a mere $100,000 I think I'd pay off my house and car, and travel. I could afford a great lifestyle with all no debt. Except that furniture. I'd have new furniture.
After paying everything off and making sure the girls had no problem getting through college, I would buy the woods behind our house. Then we would build a house in the woods. But nothing too big...the bigger the house, the more there is to clean! lol
Big winnings I would 1st quit work, have DH quit work and take off around the world. Come back and find one or two nice places to spend the rest of our lives together. That would be after making sure my Dad and my In-Laws were all taken care of and living in style till they "cross over".
Only 100,000 ??
Top wins on the $5 scratch offs are 300,000 and the Fantasy Five for tonight is $374,000 - tickets are a buck =)..
When I win I will pay on my house, recarpet and repaint it. buy me a used car and take a trip to see Tracy !
