That song has been stuck in my head for a few months now. I’ll be driving down the road to work or mopping the floor and will start humming or singing it out of the blue. It’s made me wonder though… What WOULD I do with a million dollars.* Would I spend it all in a day on a fun whatever-I-like-that-I-see-I-buy kind of day, or spread it out over a few months? Would I invest it all and build up a killer savings and retirement fund? Would I donate it to help charities or other good causes? So many options!
Here’s what I think I would do. I would take half of it and buy a decent 3-4 bedroom house and furnish it. I’d also splurge and get the scuba gear for both Xan and I that we have been wanting. And then, I would consider buying a summer house in Greece.
Then, on the money that we would be saving on rent, since our house would pretty much be completely ours, I’d be able to up the monthly donations, squirrel away a bit more into savings, and every now and then have enough saved up to go visit our summer house and scuba dive around the world.
What would YOU do if you had a million dollars.
