The Imaginary Windfall

Just thinking here on what to do with all the money from an imaginary windfall.

Why am I thinking that?  It is the new year.  Happy New Year, by the way!  Now is the time to dream about BIG.

Ok, so here we go.

With a $100,000 windfall I would:

  • Give 10% to my church – $10,000
  • Rehab my kitchen – $10,000
  • Convert my unfinished attic to living space  – $50,000
  • Purchase a new HVAC system – $10,000
  • Contribute to Kiddo’s 529 – $10,000
  • Contribute to Roth IRA – $5,000
  • Take Mom and Kiddo to Iceland on vacation – $5,000

With a $200,000 windfall I would:

  • Give 10% to my church – $20,000
  • Pay off my mortgage – $135,000

  • Purchase a new HVAC system – $10,000
  • Contribute to Kiddo’s 529 – $10,000
  • Contribute to Roth IRA – $10,000
  • Take Mom and Kiddo to Iceland on vacation – $5,000

With a $300,000 windfall I would:

Give 10% to my church – $30,000

  • Pay off my mortgage – $135,000
  • Rehab my kitchen – $10,000
