$1 Million & 10 Things For Me

10ot_2

This week's topic is: 10 THINGS YOU'D BUY IF YOU HAD A MILLION DOLLARS (AND YOU HAD TO SPEND IT ON YOURSELF). Here's my list:

  1. I'd 'buy' my way out of debt, first!
  2. A townhouse or condo.
  3. The only furniture I have that wasn't a hand-me-down is my bed, so . . . . new furniture (and furniture that actually matches).
  4. A day at the spa - I'd get the works! I need a little de-stressing these days & this would do the trick!
  5. A trip or two - most definitely a trip back to Charleston, SC and to Flat Rock/Hendersonville, NC because it's been so long since I've visited either place. I also want to visit Greece, Ireland & Italy.
  6. A new car - not that I don't like the car I have, but who wouldn't love a new car? And, I think I could swing it with $1 million!
  7. A new wardrobe. I desperately need new clothes. I couldn't tell you the last time I bought any new clothes.
  8. TiVo! I've always wanted it, but would never spend the money on it!
  9. A top-of-the line camera! I've fallen in love with photography & would love to have a better camera to test out my skills (or lack thereof).
  10. It's hard to come up with a list of things to spend on ME! And, I just can't come up with anything else. So, I would invest the rest of my money in my church, charity & others. Because, after all, I'm happiest when I'm doing for others, which is gift to ME!

If you'd like to play along, feel free to do so. Just leave me a comment so I can check out your answers! Have a great week!

Great list!

Your number 1 is the same as mine would be... I would love not to worry about my student loan debt! I would save (is that an option) the rest of the money... or use it to travel the world...

Happy Tuesday!

I think I should have been practical and had your #1 on my list, too! ::hugs::

Great list! I'd probably pay off my debt first too, forgot that one. Thanks for the comment!

Alexis said...

Cool list. My first would be the same as yours too but I guess since I know I will never have the money to get out of debt.... who thinks about it.... LOL!!! Have a happy day!!!

I love your #10! Giving to others really is a gift to yourself, isn't it? Great list!

I LOVE South Carolina! We try to visit Hilton Head as often as possible!

I don't think I would spend it on myself except to pay bills off. Then I would help each of my children, their children and my parents.

Thanks for stopping by and your sweet comments. Sandy

Practical and fun at the same time. I left of charity, but I probably would give quite a percentage, because I am just that way :)

I hope to come back soon.

I would use some of the money to invest in starting my own company. I think it would be great to create great jobs for people. (and myself!)

Also wanted to thank you for stopping by my site and entering! Have a great weekend!
