There’s nothing I love more than daydreaming about the things I would do with a sudden windfall of money. Whether I’m spending millions in imaginary lottery winnings or a smaller imaginary raffle prize, it’s always fun to plan out how I’d use the money if I won, so that “I’m ready just in case.” And right now, Royale is asking Canadians what they would do if they had $50,000 to spend!
Now while I love daydreaming, the truth is that I’m incredibly practical when it comes to money. So while I would be thrilled to come into such a large amount of money, I wouldn’t be running to the mall with it! Instead, my first priority would be on securing my family’s future by paying down our mortgage. A $20,000 payment would make a huge dent in the total amount of the mortgage and would mean paying it off a decade earlier.
But the fun and excitement don’t stop there! After that it would be time to put some money towards some much-needed renovations. Our house currently has an unfinished addition and I dream of the day that it’s finally complete. Bigger bedrooms for the boys and I can finally enjoy the master bathroom and sweet walk-in closet. With $15,000 or so, I would be able to make that dream a reality. And the spare room could double as a library, something I desperately need with my extensive book collection!
Finally, it would be time to spoil my boys with a hefty $10,000 deposit into their collage funds. At three and six, it’s the furthest thing from their minds. But I don’t see tuition going down any time soon, so the more I can save for them now, the happier they’ll be in fifteen years or so!
With that, our $50,000 windfall will almost be gone, but I’ll have lots to show for it! And that final $5000 will be all fun! I’m thinking a family trip to Disneyland might be in order! And then Mama may just have to spoil herself with a new pair of Loubouins for the trip!
