I'm sure many of you have the dream bucket list of items you would buy if money wasn't an issue. I thought it would be interesting to see what people would buy, if they won the lottery or received a lot of money from somebody. I would buy a generator, so would be prepared for any power outage. No more food thrown out and the fish would have enough water circulating around the pond. It would reduce lots of stress. Amazon isn't expensive for generators, but they don't ship to my area due to the state laws here. Its just one of the laws that I disagree with the decision to not allow them to come in from another state. What would you buy? I'm looking forward to see how many would buy something your place needs and how many would buy a fun item. My husband would use it for travel to other countries.

I would like to refurbish some part of the garden. Change the fence, plant some new trees, not big things.

I love trees provide great shade and are great for the environment. Its always a great plan to improve the garden and I'm going to do that one just to save money on produce. Some fruits are always high in this area. Wish I had room for a Cherry Tree, but my weather isn't right and a better fruit here are oranges. Thanks for posting.

@Fishmomma We have not the right weather for a cherry tree, but I could plant an apple and an apricot tree, also a fig and a pear.

@LadyDuck I have never seen a Fig Tree. I picked a lot of apples in my youth and we would make cider or juice. We would make lots of pies and freeze them.

That would be great. I like to see animals have plenty of room to live. Its sad to see so much land has buildings and when I was young there were a lot less buildings. Thanks for posting.

Wow, that seems so unfair that they won't allow that. I'd buy my dad a brand new truck since he's always wanted one. He would prefer used though. He thinks brand new for him would be silly. For me personally, I'd buy a medium sized house with a yard large enough for multiple dogs. I'd then go to the pound and get my dog Annabelle some brothers or sisters.After that I'd get a personal chef to plan and make my meals a week ahead of time. It would be a chef that knew how to make healthy things delicious!

The rules in California are really different than the state I use to live Oregon. I'm not sure which is the bigger challenge not being able to buy some items or the high cost of living here, as housing is really high. There are jobs in this area, so that is why we live here and not Oregon. I would benefit from a chef, as have a challenging time losing weight and keeping it off. Its not easy eating right and hope to some day be able to say I have gained zero pounds that year. Thanks for posting.

Same here.I would buy a generator.Whenever there is a strong typhoon,there is also power outage. Sometimes,power interruption would last for three days or more.Good thing,this year we have not experience a power outage yet.I hope we won't.That will not be fun because I have a baby. I would also buy a 5 bedroom house if money is not ab issue.

I was raised on a farm and in my early years we didn't have electricity in the house. Its hard to imagine life without power, so feel fortunate to be able to just turn on the lights today. We had a wood burning stove to cook on and would do everything possible during the daylight. Thanks for posting.

A generator is an excellent idea, I am going to add this item to my list. Silly, maybe, but I would buy a new pair of socks for every day. Tons of books for sure.

If my power wasn't off so much this summer wouldn't consider hunting one down. There are so many really cool socks that you could easily have a different color or pattern for each pair of socks, which would be great to keep warm in cooler climates. Books I already have lots and can't have to many of them. I purchased large book shelves when Borders went out of business. They are now full. Thanks for posting.

Its certainly not easy today with the airlines checking all the passengers and their luggage meaning long lines to fly and its certainly can be costly to travel around the world. Thanks for posting.

A house purchase can save a lot of money, as no more paying rent to somebody else. I love gardening and that would be great to have food for your family to enjoy. Running water has always been my way to reduce stress, so that is a great plan. Thanks for posting.

Iwould buy every lotto ticket I could to get me more money. The more you spend the faster you go back to nothing.

Yes, a generator can make life easier. Its something I considered years ago when we lived near a power pole that to many people were hitting causing power outages. In my area the city is putting the power lines under ground, so they turn off the power whenever they are working on the lines. This summer the power has been off quite a few times and every time its 8 hours or more that's hard. Thanks for posting.
