This amazing anniversary promotion has left me procrastinating over the last little while. What would I do if I was lucky enough to win $50,000? How would I celebrate? The options are truly endless. Would I splurge and spend the money on nothing but material things? Or… Would I be a little more money conscious, pay down debts and invest? It’s always hard to know exactly how you would react until you are placed in the situation. However – I’ve placed my situation in an unrealistic scenario and here’s how my spending would roll out…

I would make a donation to the ALS Society of Canada. This is a cause that is near and dear to my heart. My Nana passed away after a year long battle with ALS in December of 2012.

My dream car has always been the Camaro. If ever won a substantial amount of money… It would be extremely hard to pass up purchasing a Chevrolet Camaro. It screams fun, fierce and flirty!! The perfect fit for this Momma who will be turning 30 next year.

My husband and I desperately need to update our bedroom furnishings. Right now we have all Ikea furnishings. While I love Ikea, I want something with more of a classic and a bit of oomph. I want my bedroom to have that extra bit of pizazz. After all not only is it where I sleep, it is also where the magic happens. The bedroom deserves to have that special flare.

In addition to updating furniture in our bedroom, I would also update the furnishings in our living room. Purchases would included a sectional sofa, accent chair, area rug, coffee tables and end tables.

A luxurious trip without the kids would be an absolute must! Bora Bora, anyone?!? I think so!!

I would feel guilty about taking a vacation without the kids, so of course we would finally book a Disney trip. I’m sure my daughter would be elated to find out she could finally pamper herself at the Bibbity Bobbity Boutique.

Being that we reside in a new build, there are still many upgrades that we would like to do to make the house  our own. Adding back splash in the kitchen, updating the dining room light fixture and getting our backyard properly landscaped.

We are an outdoorsy family. The backyard will one day be a huge investment for us. We want a pool, outdoor wet bar, luxurious garden and patio. It needs to be something I can see myself lounging around in for endless summers. After all, I like to think of our current house as possibly being our forever home.

Lastly, I would pay down any debts and make contributions to our RESP and RRSP accounts.

I like to dream big. There is certainly no denying that! So tell me… How would you celebrate a $50,000 winning?

    oh my, I can dream… the logical, un-fun side of me says PAY OFF BILLS, but the impulsive, fun side of me says, a trip, new clothes for everyone and a whole lot of shoes!!! 🙂

    Great promo!
    I would shop, pay bills and put it towards my kids education or a downpayment for a condo/home.

    Nicole, I love what you’d do with your winnings! We are looking for a resale home, so I would put the cash toward our purchase. If that were out of the way, sign me up for a Disney Cruise, a new bedroom set and a kitchen makeover.
