“You’ve just won $1 billion dollars in the local lottery. You do not have to pay tax on your winnings. How will you spend the money?” –The Daily Post
That is a lot of money! First, I’d spend a small portion on technology. Maybe upgrade the TVs in my home, get a newer Mac, and buy all of my family members their own Samsung Chromebook because I’m absolutely in love with mine.
Then I would donate a portion to meaningful causes like the Eliminate Project that I spent that the last few years raising money for through Key Club. It’s a project aimed at raising funds for the elimination of maternal and neonatal tetanus in third world countries.
I’d visit China and Japan because I have always wanted to do that.
I’d put a portion into my retirement fund and a portion into my “spend on my future boyfriend” fund.
The leftovers would go to my parents to help pay for the house and any other expenses they have!
