    If you had $150,000 + plus cash to spend,

    First have no bills, own my home and land clear.
    New truck own clear.

    Ideas what to do with money , best way to spend.


    Edit to add......because this thread came up again...........If you only had a few years to live.

    I couldn't even guess. The last time I had any money I wound up giving most of it away. [​IMG]

    I would go around playing 'Secret Santa' and reward folks for good deeds.

    That's assuming, of course, that I had already set up education trust funds for my kids and no one I loved was in need.

    I think it would be an amazing thing to reward folks who 'do the right thing' when they didn't know someone was paying attention. It's a beautiful thing to think about how much joy one could bring to others with that kind of surprise.

  10. I would put some into an interest-earning account (like $50,000) and then buy some land with the rest....God ain't making any more!

    Oh and I'd probably upgrade my coop to a Morton building with about 50 chicken-sized stalls. LOL
