We all dream about winning the lottery. I know I do and despite a few lucky £40 wins over the year, I’ve never won anything more substantial than that. But that doesn’t stop me dreaming of course and I often wonder what I would do, what I would buy and how I would spend my money if I did win a substantial amount of dollar on the lottery. So let’s pretend for a minute that I have won a hella lot of dosh… Here’s what I would do with it.
Pay off my parents morgage and any other bills
Okay this is like a totally boring thing to start with and will probably make you want to stop reading (please don’t!) but after everything they’ve done for me over the years, I think the first thing I would do is pay off something for them and help them out. Maybe buy them a little holiday home somewhere too.
Book an extensive holiday for my boyfriend and I
I don’t mean just a 5 star stay in Tenerife; I would go all out. I’d spoil us both absolutely rotten and get first class, VIP, 5 star everything. Possibly a trip around Scandinavia in the best hotels. Or a cruise or something equally as exotic. I’m not a big ‘traveller’ and I much prefer shorter holidays in a specific place.
Pay for a VIP experience at a Formula 1 Grand Prix
If you follow me on Twitter then you will know that I love Formula 1. I would love to go to a Grand Prix at some point but they are so bloody expensive. Like, so expensive! If I won the lottery, I wouldn’t just get tickets, I’d love to get the whole VIP experience and really make the most of it! Maybe meet a driver or two… 😉
Buy a house or apartment
I’d buy a place for myself, preferably an apartment and pay it all off so it was mine and I wouldn’t have to worry about rent or anything. How luxurious would that be? Oh and not to mention I would have a blast decorating it exactly how I wanted to. Could you imagine the home-ware hauls?!
Put some in saving
I think this is smart more than anything but (depending on how much I won of course) I’d definitely put a chunk of it in savings for the future. What’s the point in winning the lottery if you spend all your money in one go then have nothing left to look forward to?
Donate some to charity
I would absolutely donate a big sum of my winnings to a charity or a few charities of my choice. I don’t know how anyone could win the lottery and not want to help other people with all that money. I’d probably opt for Cancer Research and an animal charity of some kind – maybe Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.
You’ve just won 10 million pound on the lottery, what do you do with it? I’d absolutely love to hear your answers to this so leave me a comment and let me know! Be as extensive as you like!
