GTKY: If I had...

What would you do if you had an extra...

$1 000

$10 000

$100 000

(Or I could ask you "If I had a million dollars" and then you'd all have that song stuck in your head :D

Re: GTKY: If I had...


  • What would you do if you had an extra...

    $1000 - buy a new wardrobe that fits me right now

    $10000 - redo my kitchen cabinets

    $100000 - add on a master suite to the house with a big bathroom and walk in closets, and I'd have about 30K leftover to do something with so I'd still buy that wardrobe.  :)

     Thanks the song is already in my head now.

  • $1 000: I'd pay for someone to finish painting the house. Or buy the kids a swing set. Or maybe I could do both if I went for a used set?

    $10 000: Re-do my kitchen

    $100 000: I'd get this house to where I want it. That includes new kitchen, new bathrooms, new windows, new landscaping. And whatever money is left I would use for some fancy family vacation. I might even pay for a sitter to tag along so that DH and I could enjoy some alone time without having to leave the kids at home

    18 months of timed sex, checking cm, 5 of those months on clomid and progesterone, thousands of OPK, hundreds of HPT, an STP, countless dildo cam u/s and pct later, we have a baby in there! due date 4/18/13
  • 1000, I'd get new couch and love seat for the living room. Our current stuff are hand me downs from the in laws when they first finished their basement. Then they went with me to all of my college and grad school apartments. I'm ready for nice, grown up furniture!
    10000, updates around the house like a fence, bathrooms, new paint and curtains, and whatever is left would go into the kitchen.
    100000, the aforementioned updates plus some, pay off some debt, and save the rest for when we relocate in a few years.
    I wish!!
