If I had $50,000...

I found this post through my friend Alison at This wasn't the Plan. If you have not been by to visit her blog yet, go check it out.

Hank at My Investing Blog is wondering what I'd do with it if I did have it. He has a contest going on right now where all you have to do to enter is answer the following question "If you were given $50,000USD (tax free) today, what would you spend it on?". Unfortunately he isn't giving away $50,000, but a chance to win either a $150, $100, or $50 gift card will do.

If we were to suddenly have $50,000 I know what we would do. Pay off the debts that we have incurred with this crosstraining and move adventure that we have been in for the last year. It's really scary to think that we need about that much just to get to an almost even keel, when just over a year ago, we were doing really well money wise.

Then we would hire someone to do the fixer upper things that need to be done to the house in Florida to get it listed with a real estate agent.

And then hopefully have enough left over to buy a new to us car, that either I can drive to school every day, or that Jerry can drive to work.

Now, if you were given $50,000 what would you spend it on? Go visit Hank at My Investing Blog and let him know that I sent you!~
