 I've been out of work for nearly  four years and living off of savings so I have been being very very frugal. It would be really nice to splurge on some new clothes that are in style again!  I haven't bought ANYTHING new in years except for a couple of items selected off the deep-discount sale racks to wear to interviews.  The rest would go to replenish my savings so that, even if I never find another job that pays what I used to make,  I won't have to start drawing SS just as soon as I hit the minimum age.

Share it with my kids, so that they might pay off their school loans.

If I received a sudden windfall of money I would first of all pay off all of my debts, medical, student and delinquent credit card. I would give a significant amount to christian ministries abroad, I would give some to family members and I would give to the poor. I would save a small portion for myself.

I would pay off my debt! Prepare a place in my home for my mother to live comfortably. Donate funds to my fiance' to him help get his camp renovated so the innercity children can visit and expereince the beautiful Pocono Mountains. I would assist young adults who have age out of fostercare and still need guidance, a place to live and care.

Retire my husband so we could travel together to all the AARP conventions and have more time to volunteer together  for AARP.

First I would add to my retirement and Roth accounts. Second, pay off my medical bills and student loan and make some much needed home repairs. Finally, take a dream European cruise.
