I would spend some of the money on new plants and work in my flower garden. Then relax with a good movie.

I would spend it on a Spa day and a facial. I am 64 yrs old and have never been to a spa. After that I would walk the whole store of IKEA

If I had $200 and a day off, I'd spend my day drinking Hot Chocolate while taking the AARP Safe Driver & CompTIA Certifications after verifying the deposit in my account of course. lol First things First.

If I am the recipient of the $200/day off challenge I would give me myself and my virtual grands a day out of school and take a trip to a museum and lunch of their choice. Then I would treat myself to a spa for a couple hours..

That's a great idea. I would take my cousin to dinner and enjoy her company, she never gets to go out and enjoy herself. Her income is maxed out and there is no extra money for anything. I know I won't win the $200 but I still can take her someplace

for her to have a good dinner.

I would  love to do that for her.

If I am the lucky candidate to win the $200. I will   use it for a spa day with wine and hors d’oeuvres to relax and gather my thoughts on how to retire.

I lost the love of my life 5 months ago and I would visit Church or chapel to give thanks for all the good people out there

It would be a nice family affair at the beach and enjoy myself ridding on the yacht taking pictures and just having fun.  Swimming at the motel enjoying family and friends.

A day all to myself and just relax and do nothing. Go to a motel and just relax and get plenty of rest. I do babysit for my cousins sometimes but I am in need of that much-needed break away from the babies, God knows I love them with all my heart but a much-needed break is needed. I would not give them up for all the Gold in China because I love them so much. 

God bless all of you.

I would pamper myself, a day at the spa, getting my nails done, go out to dinner, enjoy family and friends with masks on, and staying safe. This would make my day, since the panic I haven't been able to attend any outing, nor close connections with family and friends. There is not too much we can do with family and friends until we have put a cure to this panic. Everyone must stay safe doing these pandemic times. 

We have to-it's a must that we all stay safe doing these times as AARP explains. Stay safe people and be careful of getting close to others if not family members.

I would go get my Daughter who I haven't been able to spend much time with during the pandemic and have lunch and go get mani/pedis.   Very relaxing!

My name is Susan. I won all 10. I feel I deserve tone pampered asI once was.  Unfortunately, my wonderful husband passed away a while back.  I miss these luxuries like a massage, facials etc.  I hope you pick me, as I would be most grateful..if I can answer any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.  My first line gives my email address and my first name..psI do read everything I receive from AARP..in addition, I renewed for 3 more years..Thank you and please be safe.

I would love to go on a long drive with a couple sister friends and have a nice lunch or dinner.  The pandemic has really interrupted our sister friend time,  and I miss that face to face connection so much.

Relaxing sounds of rhythmic waves on the shore, warmth of sun on my skin, what I’d experience with a day off on the beach.

My husband was just diagnosed with pancreas ductile cancer. With $200 and a day off, I'd put it toward a train trip. He loves trains and there's one out of Durango, CO he wants to do.

I would spend the $200 for a haircut which is badly needed since we have not been able to do this type of activity since the Coronavirus hit. then I would take whichever of my daughters that would be so kind as to take me to this hair appointment to lunch, for a special treat, and then maybe we could do a little shopping if there would be any money left from the $200. That would take up most of the day and I would have a new outlook on life.

I would drive the 2 1/2 hours to see my kids in Chicago and get carry-out food to celebrate this longed-for reunion. 😍  It's been 15 months since I've been able to hug my son.  Have only seen my daughter twice during that time.  Now that I'm fully vaccinated, I will risk driving out of state AFTER self-quaranting for 14 days so that I do not expose them to any virus. I CAN'T WAIT ❣️
