In Response to If you won 50K what would you do with the prize money?:
It's time to dream.  Imagine you just won $50,000.   What would you do with the prize money?   Would you put this money towards your retirement? Pay down/off bills? Help a family member? Donate to your favorite charity?   Let your imagination flow!

First I would give 10% or more to my church.  Then I would give generous gifts to my children and stepchildren, our grandchildren and great grandchildren.  My husband and I enjoy giving to others.  If there is anything left I would take my husband on a cruise.  JO

I will not put my eggs in one basket, I will look for an auction home I will rent it for extra income in my retirement, I will give some for my church, I put some money in high risk investment and other in CD's, I will take a cruise, I will update the bathroom and fence my yard, I will pay few bills and if I have leftover I will put toward my house mortgage

I had to retire due to a disability that prevented my being able to do essential functions of my position but I am still as active as I can be in a powerchair in a rural setting. If I won I would use part of it for a down payment on my first home, and make accessible, nearer to my grandchildren and towards the purchase of a used modified van since the one I own is only partially functional, and unsafe (half the ramp broke off and I have to bungee cord the door closed).
