What would you do if you suddenly became rich?

November 24, 2009 4:58am CST
The other day I was playing the game of "let's think what would we do if we suddenly became rich". Isn't it nice to dream? If I suddenly got a big sum of money, of course I would travel all around the world, and also would share that money with the ones I love. I could do some selfish things too, like buying things for myself, like expensive clothes, or that kind of things you usually can't afford much. Let's use the imagination. In your case, what would you do if you suddenly became rich?

Hi Madteaparty, I have it all planned out. Not if, but when I become rich(I have the faith) I plan to immediately set up trust funds for a few of my little relatives, get a full medical check,(gotta make sure I'm in good health)I plan to buy my daughter a house, yes I do. Take my little relatives all around the country visiting fun places for children, since their parents can't afford to take great vacations, I would continue to donate to my charaties with increased amounts. Those are my top things to do when I get rich and I would leave the rest to come as it chooses.

If I became rich I do not think I would spend much of it on myself as I love the home I have so I would pay off the mortgage on my little home and pay off the new car I bought a couple of months ago. The rest I would give away to my favorite charities and the few family member who deserved some help. I would really enjoy being "Lady Bountiful".

If I suddenly became rich, I would pay off all of my medical bill debt. The next thing I would do is get a bigger car so my whole family could fit in the same car. I would redo my kitchen floor and bathroom. HELP BATH FITTERS!! I would fly to Las Vegas and go golfing with my wonderful husband there. I would also start my own problem to help premature babies that would hep the March of Dimes. I would be relaxed and never have to worry about struggling again!!

madteaparty I would buy a computer repair business and put my son to work in it then I would buy a condo so we could once again live together. then I would put most of my money into savings and put just enough to live on in checking, my son would then have a good job and we would once again have a real home. some real dreaming here. huh?

Funny, but I can't even imagine if I ever became rich. What I have imagined before is if I won the lottery (mini lottery) so maybe I gain a couple of thousand dollars. I would just deposit it and/or use it for overdue payments and things that we need to fix in the house, or finish mortgage, etc. I know it sounds like a party pooper, but that's how realistic I suppose I am thinking at least right now.

Don't worry, I respect realistic thinking a lot . It is good to think in a way that will help you in your everyday expenses too

Every now and then I do ask family members what they think they'd do, but it's hard to think of really, really hitting the jackpot. ;o) Wish I could imagine like that, but I just wish we could be much mor esteady with good income. Hopefully things will be turning up as recession fades away. (fingers crossed).

Actually, when I think about it again, I would definitely try to donate for causes. It would take research to know which places honestly use it as stated and/or fully. Also on medical research for animals. (Yes, I am an animal lover) A top choice place would be for animal protection and shelters. And also for family and friends, and then general who are in need.

Im more about quantity rather than quality. I would much rather have a bunch of clothes from a less expensive store,rather than only a few things from an expensive shop :] I would definitely take some to spend, but I honestly feel that I would put the rest into savings.

That's a nice way to think. Is good to find a good use of it, and you never know what will you need the savings for ;)

I would definately go to find a nice place to eat and celebrate first.It is something to be celebrate about since I haven't been a rich person for a long time.Then I will start to figure out how I am going to use this sudden wealth.I don't think I will keep spending it since all the money will be gone if I use it like this way.I will have a great plan to see how I can use this "sudden" money for the kingdom of God and for my own investment as well.Then ,I will relax for awhile and go to travel to some places that I am hoping to go for a long time.

When I read the nose job I immediately thought American, but I see I was wrong . It's nice to have dreams, and it would be even better if we would have the means to accomplish them

Looks like I have started some similar topic like this before and have good response .Well,it is mylot.It is easy to find something similar but a bit different in this great network.It is fun anyway.Oh,yes!I almost forgot why I am here,excuse me^_^.If I suddenly became rich,the first thing I will do is to enjoy a nice buffet with all kinds of delicious food.And then I will figure out where I am going to spend my vaction in this world.Sounds great?Yes....but it is only a dream anyway.Well,sometimes it is happy to have some dream instead of no gream at all.Right now?No buffet,no travel and nothing,but still we have mylot to share some communication with friends online.I think it is quite rich already and suddenly,we all became rich like that and thanks to mylot ^_^.Ha ha.

If I would suddenly become rich maybe I would buy house and lots, cars and I would share it to my family and of course I would definitely travel. But with all the things that happening right now I guess all of us should be practical in handling money because you can spend all of this in one day if you like but if you know how to manage it then you could probably grow it so spend money wisely.

It's true, you can become rich as soon as you can become poor again, so it's a nice thing to think in a realistic way so you can use that money in a good way

If I suddenly became rich, firstly, I will buy a new big house for my parents. and second, help my relatives who is in the difficult situation. take some of the money out to help poor people who have got disease which needs much money. then the rest, I will buy stock to invent. : )

Most of my ambitions and dreams have been fulfilled and so that extra money that I would get would go to my Trust which has several objectives and it will help me fulfil those objectives .

Most lottery owners advices the winners to stay "low" when winning the lottery for the most obvious reason, your own safety. People who won lotteries often are targets of criminal elements since it will be very obvious for them to spend money here and there. Got my point? So if I will become rich overnight, it would be a dream come true. But for every dream, there would be responsibilities. And one of them is to make sure that you and your family would be safe. Spending once in a while without other people knowing that your richer than before.

It`s true the thing about being discrete. You can get many unwanted attention, not to mention the government.
