The Barenaked Ladies had some good ideas about what to do with a million dollars, but PH and I go even further when dreaming about what we would do if we won the lottery.
I’m naturally a dreamer and a what-if type person (this blog is If By Yes for a reason), so this is one of my favourite types of conversation.
What would we do if we won big money?
- Pay off the mortgage is first on the list, obviously, because WE DREAM BIG.
- Sharing a certain amount with family and friends, of course, because if you’re rich but your family and friends hate you, your life is not better.
- Invest a sizable portion of it, to get the interest yearly.
- Set aside a bunch for our children’s education/weddings, naturally.
Mostly boring stuff, because when it comes down to it, a tidied life with no mortgage and no worries about saving would be a huge boon just as it is.
We’re not big-house-fancy-car folks, so a lack of debt is a real dream for us just as it is.
For us, the real dreaming starts past the 5 million mark.
