Is not to much, but is something, i don t ask about pay bills...this is our ethernal problem, i ask about what you want buy, something for you, for your family or for your home... So, can make 1,000 dollars now to want to buy something?

I don't know if i would want to buy something right now, or if I would want to put the money into the bank, and save it. If I put $1,000 in the bank right now, it shouldget me some interest and that'll be a great thing to have. I always like to save as much as possible.

HI ICESMILE! If i had 1000 dollars, i would not spend it. i would invest it in some place. Then when i turn that 1000 into 10,000, that is the time when I spend it! So in short, I want to earn a lot first before spending :)

I'm assuming this is not money that is already my own? If I had $1,000, I'd rather save it than spend it. But if I absolutely had to use the money, then I'd probably use it to pay for my college tuition this autumn. Right now, I'm only taking one class, so I'd have about $200 left over. I'd use the rest to buy one to three pairs of shoes, and get a new mobile phone.

If I have that amount I don't buy anything but I used to put up a small business. Because if have a small business the money will possibly grow and then buy something that I want

here it is a big amount because a dollar's equivalent is about 48 philippine peso. i could buy an airconditioner unit and a new set of sofa with that cash for my living room. thank you for this discussion. made me in the mood to think of new things for the house. ann

1,000 dollars is a pretty good amount. If I got that money out of the blue... I'm not entirely sure what I would do. The smartest thing, and the thing I would probably end up doing would be putting it into my savings. But if I bought something with $1,000 it would probably be books. I love books. I'm thinking $1,000 would be 100-150 books. That would be a good year's worth of reading for me.
