All the money in the world…

Between the latest book I’ve been reading before bed and the current craze over the Mega Millions jackpot, I’ve found myself daydreaming about how I’d use the money if I had “all the money in the world…”  <I swear I’ve written a post like this before, but I can’t find it, so you’ll have to deal with this one.>  Really, none of my goals are too far out there.  And I wouldn’t tell anyone that I won either!  Here’s the Top Ten things I’d do immediately if I suddenly had all the money in the world:

1. Add an office and deck to our house.  And a new dining room table.  And granite counter tops.  And buy the lot next door.  And maybe build a new house while we’re living in this one.

2. Buy Mike a new car.  I’d probably get a new car too, but I don’t really need one.  Not that I really “need” any of this…

3. Buy a beach house to spend a month in every summer.

4. Donate all of my clothes and start over.

5. Never sell at the resale or have a garage sale again. 

6. Have a tummy tuck.

7. Get a bid for a pool.  (I’m not ready to have one in my yard yet.)

8. Travel more.

9. Pay for our friends’ kids to go to college (this is Mike’s idea – not sure how we’d manage that without telling people we were miraculously rich).

10. Have Mike quit his job to manage our money (and play with the kids) full-time.

Have you bought your lottery ticket?  What would you do with a sudden windfall?

  6. We would pay off all debt, including the house.
    Do all the upgrades/fixes on the house that we want.
    New cars for both of us.
    New clothes for all of us.
    We’d give a certain amount to all our sisters and brothers and my husband’s parents. (Since my sister is not alive any more, her money would go to my nephew.)
    A Lake house
    My husband not working anymore
    Of course college funds and investing.

    1. Buy a vacation home
    2. Travel to Hawaii and Australia
    3. Set aside money for college for the kids
    4. Donate more…to church and cancer research

    Not sure what else, but these are the ones off the top of my head. I’d like to hope that my lifestyle wouldn’t change.

    I would buy a vacation home next to yours so our kids can play in your pool :)

    I haven’t bought a ticket (yet), but I would immediately call a plastic surgeon for a tummy tuck and b. lift consult.

    Also I’d get new wood windows for our house, which would cost about $30K because the house is old and none of the frames are perfectly square anymore.

    And then I’d upgrade my house’s security system, because now random people would know I won the lottery.

    And I’d go shoe shopping, because my feet grew during pregnancy but I haven’t enough money to restock my shoe wardrobe.

    And… I guess I had better run out and buy a ticket!
