What if you won $100, 000? What would you do with it? (I thought this was more creative than winning a whole ton o cash).

I would:

Great question!

I would pay off all our debt, stock a chunk in savings, buy some new furniture and a boat for dh.

Well with 100,000 we could not pay off our debt (student loan and mortgage) but we would probably:

put in our shed with loft for camping gear (including the new tent we just bought) and a greenhouse along one side.

some goes in savings

some toward IVF and baby furniture (cause the stuff I want ain't cheap!!)

AND finish building out the crap (oops!

I would pay off my mortgage...Ahh and have $800 more a month to finish up the house and to sock into a savings account. This would be the "responsible" thing to do! LOL But what I would really like to spend it on would be vacations!

I would spend a month at a 'fat farm' working my #$%*@! off to lose some of my 'excess baggage'.

Let's see, DH could take some time off work so we could finish up at the old house and dump the thing!

Then I would take a small vacation with just the two of us.

Put some sheds up, including one for my son who wants some chickens.

Get a tractor for the acreage, and equipment to go with it.

Oh, and can't forget a garage or something for the tractor and maybe even our vehicles.

Oh, and I can't forget the addition we will need 9 months after I get a BFP!!!

Oops, I think I way overshot the budget! Oh well! If this were RL we would have to figure out what was most important, but since it isn't I will just pretent that everything cost less than we thought it would! Lol!!!

I would do IVF for SURE!

I would have the nursery from heaven for my little girl :o)

I would replace this pain in the butt to clean tile w/ rustic wood floors!

Yep, I think I overshot the budget too
