What I Would Do With $10K — And It Doesn’t Include Spending It
I don't think I would just blow through this cash.
In case you haven't heard, you have a chance to win up to $10,000 coming up next week. It all starts on Monday, April 5. And it couldn't be easier to pocket that money. All you need to do is download our app, listen for codewords throughout the day and then enter those codes on that same app. You have 10 chances to win up to $10,000 each weekday.
Needless to say, you should probably tune in.
Now, the big question is how will you spend that money? What comes to mind when you think of 10 grand? It could help with bills, pay for that dream vacation (that we all desperately need), or it could be a down payment on a car. There are easily more than 10,000 ways to spend $10,000.
And yet, I don't think I would spend it.
Well, at least not right away. To be completely honest, I think the first thing I would do with that cash is just look at it. It sounds dumb, but after the year we've all experienced with financial insecurities and uncertainties, I just want to see that money in my bank account. I'm not much of a spender, I've always been a saver so this makes sense in my mind, but maybe it resonates with you too.
For many of us, our eyes have been glued to our bank statements each week. We've punched so many numbers into a calculator that our fingers are bruised. And as nice as it would be to blow through that cash and some of us may need to in order to get out of debt, just seeing all of those zeroes would be a thing of beauty, right?
Oh believe me, there will come a time to spend it all (if I were even eligible to win it), but I would linger in its presence for a bit first.
