Would you change your lifestyle drastically when you become rich?

I wouldn't. I'd like to keep my lifestyle as simple and as lowkey as possible. Oh well, of course, there'll be some changes but nothing drastic. Like...hmmmmmmm...we'd be able to travel wherever and whenever we want... we could send the kids to the best schools... BUT, there be... No fancy luxury cars that might just end up being carnapped. No mansion for me because I don't want to be cooped up in such a big house when my kids have all gone from the nest.

I'm so sorry for coming in so late. Same with me also, but the problem is that becoming rich is plain daydream only.

Hi,Mona, I would keep my same lifestyle.I like the simple things.It would be nice to have enough money to help my family and to help people in need.As for me I don't care to have things that cost a fortune.I am not comfortable around people who put on airs when they have a lot of money.I would still shop for the cheaper stuff.I am by myself now so there is not much that I need.SO if I was fortunate enough to be blessed with a lot of money at this stage of my life I would be so thankful that I could help my family and the charities I like.A big portion of it would go to my Lord for without him I would not have been so blessed. Have a great day.

I don't think it would change too drastically. I would probably try to buy my own apartment here in New York. I might actually try to persue an acting career if I didn't have to worry about money. I definately wouldn't buy a car. I really don't need one. I really don't think I'd buy a ton of fancy clothes or jewelry or anything like that, either. I might buy more clothing, but it would be from the stores I already shop at now.

I will not change my lifestyle if I ever become rich. I will only want to improve quality of health by going to dentist and buy health insurance. Fix up the house that needs badly. Trade my old junky car to a better used car. I would learn to develop the love of gardening by adding flowers, shrubs, wildflowers, and many more to beautify my back yard. I would go to K-mart to buy school supplies that are on sale to fill up the shelves that I need and used with and also provide to my grandkids to write and draw with as well. I read earlier that mona269 mention about don't want to be cooped up in a mansion and I would like to add is that mansion is tooo big to take care of like too much cleaning and lot of walking around. I would prefer simple house where I am living with so much easier to take care of in a short time , so that I can do more things and focus on other interesting areas.

Hi, I will not change my life drastically. I will use the money to pursue my dream. I will start my own private server to host a lot websites. I will go to travel and buy more houses and shops and rent them to earn rental fees every month.

There are a few things that I would do, like to remove the mobile home I am living in from the lot and build a small house with a large craft room with a small kitchenette in it. I would also buy a used car and have it paid for totally. I then would pay of my BF's bills so he has nothing to worry about. THEN, I would donate money to various service organizations like Loaves and Fishes, the local humane societies, set up a prescription fund for those people who can't afford prescriptions (Oh, and I promised my doctor I would buy him a Corvette!). I would continue to live my life the way I have always lived it, but it would be so nice not to worry about money. I would get a few luxuries like nice jewelry(I would be looking for the stuff on sale, I prefer getting the stuff at a reduced price)and some nice clothes for me and a very good lady friend of mine who needs clothes. But the rest of the money would be invested.
