If you had a million dollars, what would you buy?

Post by Bandit Cat on Sun Jul 03, 2016 10:39 am

From one time to another, I'm sure all of us have had to overlook something (or someone!) because we didn't have enough money. But, what if you did have to money? What would you buy?

I'd love to get a 55 gallon cichlid tank, and a 40 gallon breeder for Cotton. I'd also like to give each of my bettas 20 gallons, and get my cat a gigantic cat post.

Oh well... one can dream! Smile

I'd get a Siberian cat and tons of cat stuff.
And a male mouse, with a nice big 20 gallon tank and lots of fun toys ^_^
That's if I had a million dollars and no parents who wouldn't try to stop me Wink

If I had a million dollars, I'd up all my pledges on patreon, donate a bunch to save the bees, and stash the rest. Besides pet stuff and the occasional impulse buy, I'm not actually a huge spender. I'd rather donate than binge spend.

Then I'd get some artwork commissions from some high-profile artists, then invest a lot of it, then save away the rest.

I like our current house, but it had been neglected for 20 years... it needs so much work just to get what it already has looking nice. It'd be great to just get it over with. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a dining space would be perfect. And carpet. And some extra closets.

And soooo many Christmas presents! Christmas Tongue

Pay off my mortgage, my home equity loan and my best friend's mortgage. Buy a small SUV that would easier for me to get into/out of than my low Chevy Cavalier. Upgrade to a new desktop computer (with a program newer than Windows Vista Rofling !). Convert the master bathroom's tub into an easy-access shower stall and then bank the rest. Boy, it would be nice not have to worry about $$$.

I'd buy a lovely house with enough rooms to have a critter room Razz and some nice furniture. I usually buy ikea and stuff that's cheap, because I can't afford anything fancy. Ikea's fine, but can be a bit characterless... I actually prefer more old-fashioned/antique looking furniture, as I'll always be a bit of a goth at heart Laughing

OH AND I'D FINALLY GO TO DISNEYWORLD Shocked

I play the lottery every week, so I've got it all planned out already Laughing The national lottery money funds charity projects anyway, so I don't feel too guilty about it Wink

I'm similar to MouseLover.

I'd buy a house - nothing too big that I'd have to keep up with. Fence in the yard if it wasn't already. Go on a nice vacation - Disney world, safari in Africa, etc. Get a nice fish tank, all automated maintenance.
