In what ways would you change your life if you didn't have to worry about money? There have been plenty of discussions like: "What would you do if you won a million dollars?" but this discussion in not about a million dollars or a similar amount of money. I am not talking about buying a huge house, travelling around the world and all those big things, I am thinking about the small things - the things in your everyday life. Would you eat out more often, would you buy more clothes or other things, would you go on daytrips more often, would you donate more money to charity etc? I would take more classes if I didn't have to worry about money. I like studying online, but if I didn't have to worry about money I would sign up for more classes and interact with people face-to-face. I would also visit my friends and relatives from other parts of the country more often, and visit my favourite restaurants and coffeeshops more often

I would probably do a lot more frugal shopping if i didn't have to worry about money. In today's economy we have to do so much picking and choosing. i would take a lot more vacations if money was not a concern too. It would be so nice just to be able to do whatever i wanted without worrying about my finances. If that day were to come it would be a dream come true.

I would also take more vacations if I didn't have to worry about money. There are a lot of places that I would like to visit, and if I could afford it I would like to travel around and visit a lot of different places. I would also like to visit my friends from other parts of the country more often.

I would every book i like and open a big library, where anyone and everyone would be allowed to come and read for free. I would spend all my time int he Library, just reading and reading. Most of all, i would travel around the world and buy books from every country. If wishes had wings w all could fly. Thanks for atleast giving me a chance to think what i would do...

I love libraries and reading, and I like your idea about creating a big library for everyone. Buying books from every country is also a nice idea. The public libraries in my country tend to focus on certain countries, and many countries aren't represented. I am a bit sad about that, because I am interested in books from around the world, and it would be nice if more countries were represented.

Hi Porcospino!. I think I will chase a degree in culinary science and make my own restaurant. The restaurant will be open for 6 six day for public. In Sunday I will open it for people in need who never taste good meal. I also wanna open school for woman because I see so many young women who already had a child so they had to neglected they education. I see they must do labor work to raise their children, which they will not face if they have higher education and having a child to early.

I really like your ideas about the restaurant and the school. If I had the money I would like to do something for children or people with special needs. Another thing that I have thought about is a nursing home. Some of the nursing homes in my country are quite bad and I would like to create a good place for people who need a nursing home.

1. Read more books which I am interested. I miss the time when I was a student. Time is always not enough for me to study more. 2. Learn another language,French, then Japanese and then Korean. Travel around. 3. Shopping and collect stuffs in different cities. 4. Rest more during working. Have a cup of tea with a good friend usually. 5. Run a coffer shop or a baby learning center. There are so many things... Now,I have to work first...ha

I am interested in many of the same things as you. I love reading, learning new languages and travelling. I have studied French and a little Japanese, but I have never learned the Korean language. That could be interesting I think. Running your own place also sounds like a nice idea. I would probably choose a gallery if I jad the chance to get my own place.

If money is not a constraint, then I will visit the some aromatherapy spa once a week, to unwind. I will definitely go for a weekend get-away at one of the spa resort and relax. Bring my family along with me, have the luxury of being serve at the restaurants

I have never been to a spa resort, but I would like to try it. I have looked at some of the different some of the places that exist in my country, but it sounds quite expensive, and so far I have only visited the websites. If I didn't have to worry about money it is one of the things that I would like to try. I think that would be a nice way to relax.

"What would i do in my life if i will not worry about money." I just do everything i can possibly do with my money and taking the chance to be a one day billionaire. I'll go to the places I dreamed about and have a nice vacation, rest and enjoy. I'll bring my family to the most expensive restaurant and treat them a meal. I go to the Gym and do fitness exercise. In compensation to exercise, I will eat all kinds of food i want to eat. "With more money, the simple life may be..."

Hi joshuie08 and welcome to Mylot! Visiting the places that you have dreamed about that sounds like a great idea. I think there are a lot of interesting places to visit, and I would also spend more time on travelling and visit more places if I had the money. I have never been to a really expensive restaurant, but it could be interesting to try it and spend a nice time with my family.

I would like to do some of the same things as you for instanse eating out more often and visiting more places with my friends. I like to drive around with my friends and visit different places, watch movies, drink coffee, eat out etc, and if I had more money I would be able to do it more often. I haven't been to a theme park for a very long time, but it is one of the things that I would like to do again.

Well, if money was no object then I would definitely learn how to fly and then I would have my own small craft so that I could go on small private excursions across the country! I think also that I would have a private chef or something as I'm no master cook or anything like that and I think it would be quite nice to have professional, healthy meals cooked for me on a daily basis! I guess if you had a lot of money then you wouldn't have to worry about time either! I would probably throw my wrist watches away and just concentrate on the sun rising and the sun setting, this would be my natural clock! Still, it's a dream and may remain a dream for evermore! I continue to live in hope that I may hit the jackpot one day and then all my problems will be over or they may become worse at that point! Andrew

Having a private chef that sounds like a nice idea. I am not good at cooking and that idea would appeal to me as well. I would also like to go on a lot of excursion across the country, but I would probably travel around by car There are many places that I would like to visit and if I didn't have to worry about money, I would definately visit more places.

i will pursue my dream of building a company to help the people abandoned by the society and the handicapped. something that could export some stuff from my country and have a trainer to help the handicapped or abandoned people as my employees to do some easy stuff. i would want to use the money to help them mold as responsible individuals and build more as it booms to help more people, too. =)

That sounds like a great idea. When I was a nursing student I thought about doing something like that, but I have never had enough money to start my own company, and I was always working for other people instead. That has always been interesting and challenging, but I am attacted by the idea of having my own company and helping people that way.

I'd say travel a lot. It's expensive to travel.

I would definitely quit my job and opt to become a full-time housewife. Now that we have a baby on the way, I believe that she will really need my attention and care.

My present lifestyle will not change one bit if i had a lot of money.I have become used to a reclusive and spartan life since over 20 years and thats not going to change. The reason is that i am wheelchair bound and haven`t stepped out of my house for the last 20 years. Once upon a time i was very social but now i hate being among crowds.Of course i may indulge in eating some of my favourite food items once in a while but thats about all, i suppose.At the most i may buy a laptop or a musical keyboard instrument and maybe a telescope since i am fond of astronomy.Thats all i guess.

If I have sufficient money I want to travel. I want to see the God's world. Because I believe life is one and we will not come again in this beautiful world. So I want to utilize my life by enjoying the creations of God.

If i ever got into such type of life i would like to travel in my family and to find the poor and needy relatives then i will help them in financial terms and after them i will go for my friends circle and i have a great wish to develop a quality education system for my country. I feel good and happy if i can be a helping hand for others if my little effort can solve someones problems. This world is full of sorrows and problems so i always try to minimize them for others.

I would sing my heart out till I get tired, and then relax in a coffee shop drinking my favorite drink and reading manga online. :)) And if ever money is unlimited, I would travel the world!!! And bring all my closest friends and family with me! We'll take lots of pictures, shoot lots of fun videos, meet a lot of new and interesting people, and upload all our undertakings to YouTube everyday! ;P

I would like to open a bar. I love to party at night. So at least if I have a bar then, I don't have to go to some place else just to party. I can do it all night and at my place.

If money is not a problem, I would attend classes of my personal interests, frequent leisure with my family, charity and open a recreational center for kids.

I have to say I love this discussion. I would get more clothes for a career wardrobe. Then I would take some cake decorating classes, I have always wanted to do that. The other thing I would do is a bunch of day trips with my family to places I want to visit, but never want to spend the money, even just going to D.C and Gettysburg.
