What would you buy?

I’m not trying to start a meme here or anything like that, but I was just wondering what you would buy if you had 10? 100? 1,000? 10,000? 100,000? 1,000,000?

Of course I could go on and on, but I think any more than that would be excessive. Answers can not include things like “I would pay my mortgage” or “I would give away the money to charity.” Yes, we would probably all do that to some extent, but be completely selfish.

Here’s my list

  • $10: A shirt from Threadless
  • $100: Probably four or five books off my Amazon Wish List
  • $1,000: I’d save a little more and get a 23″ Apple HD Display (I’d also get the education discount, so it’d only be $100 more)
  • $10,000: A nice used car
  • $100,000: A modest home in Houston County
  • $1,000,000: A Chevy Avalanche and a nice house on 250 acres in Houston County

That’s my list. The hardest was $100,000 for me, what about you?

    Alright…let’s see.
    $10 – some candy (nothing chocolate and nothing expensive…just lots of candy)
    $100 – a nice old-timey quail hunting jacket (with no orange…I hate orange)
    $1,000 – I’d finish off the bathroom in my basement (I hate going upstairs to use the bathroom all the time)
    $10,000 – sell the expedition and buy Stephanie a nice Explorer (or a Tahoe because she really likes those)
    $100,000 – I’d pay off my mortgage
    $1,000,000 – 300 acres somewhere in the middle of nowhere with a pond, some cows, a horse or two, a barn and a house
