Spending Millions Wisely - A challenge?
Christine Laycock and Nigel Page – winners of Britain’s Biggest lottery prize won £113 Million on Friday 12 Feb 2010. About £56 Million each. Full story
*Congrats Christine & Nigel.*
I will be in “dream land” for the next 10 minutes, while writing about how I would spend £50 Million. After reading, kindly let me know if you think I’m a wise spender or if I could do better. You’re actually helping me prepare for when that time comes. Okay, “if” that time comes.
I’d love to pimp my parents ride, so would buy mum and dad a car of their choice. Siblings -put money aside for their Uni and ask them what else they would like “within reason”.
Pay off my Mortgage and all other debt. Phew!!
Buy another property, as I hear people who win the lottery normally run out of money quickly. Something to fall back on, if I exhaust all the money?
Surprise friends who have truly been there for me and make me happy.
E-gifts for lovely Hubbers I’ve met on HP and that includes you.
Virgin – Remember that Hub I wrote on Virgin Galactic (space tourism). I might have second thoughts about it. £200,000 per person for the Space Flight - take a few people.
Visit America – one place I’ve always dreamed of travelling to and stay in a nice hotel, with a sea view. I wouldn’t mind one close to the White House. (must remember to take my Binoculars).
Might even pop into Hubpages branch with some chocolates and goodies for Maddie and Co. Also have 2 exotic holidays every year – God willing.
Nice car to get me from A to B.
Set up Saturday Dance classes for Kids and probably an after school one for Teens. Kids love dancing and they get immersed in it. This is one project I’ve had on my mind but financially, it’s so far away.
Amongst other things, I would buy some equipment for a Hospital abroad.
I get the feeling there’s still about £20 Million left to spend. What do I do with that apart from leaving it in the bank? .. or what would you do with the rest?
(Nice dream – I’ve woken up now). Hope you win too. :)
