What would you do with $20,000 if you got it today?

Put half in savings, and use the other half to buy a decent used car.

I would put allot of it in the bank, finish my tattooing, buy a macbook pro, and then give some to a few charities, probably for animals, and I'd give some to help fight blindness. I'd buy my lady a ring (maybe) give some to family, pay off some debts and get an apartment and pay it off for a year or two.

Pay for my certifications and then i'd be good i think. maybe help start college, i'd probably have a good change at getting a job then haha.

Fill up the gas tank. I could put the rest of the cost on my Visa card.

I'd buy Google and/or Apple stock and hope for another good year for both.

Immediately it would go in the bank. Then it would go probably for home improvements.

Finally I'd buy Apple and double Steve Jobs' salary.

Put most of it in the bank. Use a little bit to maybe buy a Wii accessory or two. Use a little bit more to buy a nice TV.

I would invest it all. A savings account would probably let you break even, considering inflation. At least get bonds!

EDIT: To explain...I would invest it because I am so young. That would be a big portion of my retirement in 40+ years.

I assume you mean after I buy my new iMac?? :D

Sell my car and buy a used Insight. I'd buy a couple new 23" ACD's (and the X1900 XT to support them), a bigger TV, and a new bed. The other $10,000 I would put in the bank.

Well, first, I'd use it to get rid of the huge tree that collapsed under the weight of the ice in my backyard over the weekend. :Angry:

Then, I'd put the balance into a long-term investment to save for college for my kids.

I'd buy a 1989 Honda CRX and mod it a little. Exhaust, body kit, rims. Maybe a paint job. Maybe not. I'd probably need to get it changed to an auto since I can't drive a manual (legally) =P

pay the hospital bills from the baby, pay off the last few grand on my forester, and about 10K on my wife's odessey. having the extra money from those car loans every month would be really nice.

if there was about 500 bucks left, i'd buy a ps3. :D

PinkLemonade

Buy a black MacBook (No pro for me; It would be wasteful) max out my mini's RAM, then maybe put away $1000 for myself, rest would go in the bank.

Get my Mustang painted black with white stripes, have the new hood scoop grafted, rebuild the block.

Then invest the rest.

Gosh I wish I could give you all 20k LOL

I would pay off my xmas debt on my credit card, and then the rest into investments. 10g's in to a retirement fund and the other 9g's in to a higher yield savings account

(Off topic warning) sanity1082, your 'tar reminded me of a quote.

probably invest it, since i really don't have any debts, and school is already paid for. I'd probably put it in technology stocks.

Macbook pro, new camera, and a bmw gs adventure enduro bike to tour with in europe.

Get myself a fully pimped out Mac Pro, and run outside naked.


You might be askin, "Why can't you go run outside naked without 20G?"
But you'd be surprised how much money you have to invest to competently run outside naked.
Believe me, I tried... thats why I'm so broke right now.

I'd do anything and everything I can to save our house from foreclosure...
But that's pretty much a lost cause living in the state with practically the worse economy (MI),
if thats too far gone i would secure an education :-)
Still don't know what i want to do with my life yet though.........
i would also tell some friends how much they mean to me.
Not with money though.
That's good to do once in a while :-)

I have a job that I like that brings in decent money and I have all the Apple stuff I need. I mean want. So it would go straight into the same type of investment account that my dad has and I would be able to retire in 15 years.

Oh I might use 30$ of it to put some gas in my car :D and maybe a mini fridge for my room.

i'd pay off my car and then buy a nice old school VW...possibly buy a mac mini depending on how much was left.

01-01-2008, 01:54 PM
If I got 20K today? Hmmmm,

I'd sped 1/4 of it visiting all my friends from all over the place and put the other 15 in an investment account. Cause I already have all the apple products I need at the moment.

Buy a macbook. Take a portion and send my whole family on vacation to the Philippines, send my mom on her dream vacation to Scotland also. Put the rest towards a down payment for a house, also if there is left over invest the rest for the future.

Whack the rest away, possibly buy a nice car.
