I would use the money to take a day trip with my dad, mom, and sister. The day trip would be to a national park my dad has always wanted to visit. Throughout the years he has put up with vacations that aren't typically his favorite for us. Such as the beach or waterparks, he isn't one to like crowds and instead prefers the beauty of nature. He has always been a fan of national parks, so I would take him to one upstate he said he used to spend a lot of time at when he was younger. Afterward, I would treat him and the rest of the family to whatever they would want for diner.
I would take my aging cat to the vet--I haven't had the money to look more deeply into her health issues. I've put off getting her teeth cleaned as well. Then I'd make it up to her with some of her favorite treats!
Well, I would first wakeup to see the sunrise over the Dismal Swamp. Then I take a walk and drive over to Smithfield to have breakfast at Smithfield Station. After breakfast, I would go to Lowe’s, McDonald’s Nursery and the Plant Bar to get some plants. For lunch, I would stop at some mom and pop joint for something homemade and fattening. Then I would go to HomeGoods, Burlington’s, and Biglots for decorative planters for my new plants. On my way home, I would stop at a local bakery for something sweet. When I got home I would repot my plants and then watch a movie eating my leftovers from lunch and my sweet treat.
I'm a hospice social worker and I could really use a spa day! I have dealt with too many deaths lately; not only for work but personally with the loss of my sister and several cousins and numerous church members.
I have been battling breast cancer since July 2020. I have managed to pay medical expenses but have put a dent in my savings. My church is currently in dire need of financial assistance due to the pandemic. I have been able to continue my normal giving but desire to do more. The $200 would go to Evangelical UMC in Elkton, Virginia and my day off would be spent preparing my first ever vegetable garden. Cancer changes how you view life and what you value.
I would grab my cousin and take a road trip to the lakeshore here in Michigan. We would get takeout from a restaurant, give a giant tip (whatever is left over of the 200), and eat while enjoying the beautiful lakeshore scenery and searching for petoskey or other stones.
I am retired but I surely could use $200 to set up my vegetable garden. I have decided to start eating healthier by growing some of my own food. I currently have seedlings of tomatoes, yellow squash, zucchini, bell and jalapeno peppers, lettuce, kale, and cabbage. I will be growing my vegetables in containers so $200 dollars will help me to buy the containers and soil I will need to fill them. I live in a 55+ community so I will also be sharing the fruits of my labor with my neighbors. Thank you for this opportunity, it will be greatly appreciated. Good luck to all.
I would pay the mowing assessment that the city put on my mom's property to harrass me when I returned from 4 years in Iraq as a disabled war veteran. The grass was not 12" in back but the city lied and sent the county over to mow it. The county didn't notify me until after they mowed the backyard.
I would buy organic seeds an start making my vegetable and herb garden. Would also buy flowers so my hummingbirds can come visit me. I would purchase bird houses so my singing friends would have a place to live.
$200 is reasonable good amount to get freely. First thing I would be doing is giving away $25 to homeless people around my walking area. Whatever I get I usually give to charity a certain percentage. Second I would buy a good gift for my grand daughter who is 6 years old. Third thing I would do is to take my family to a restaurant for a lunch/ dinner. Whatever left will be kept by me for my own spending. Thank you for giving me $200. Can't you extent it to $500.
