If you won 200,000 would you still go shopping?

Watch out where you go shopping, buddy.

A lot of stores carry a lot of that junk they make in China that doesn't work and falls apart right away.

Always check the label. If it says Made in China, you know for sure it's junk.

No need to thank me, I'm just glad I caught you before you bought any of that horrendous crap they make over there.

We should be boycotting them anyway until they get out of Tibet and let the Dalai Lama come home.

Bastages.

lol...... i would spend just a little and invest the rest or put it into a CD or sumthin...

    If shopping is paying off student loans, then yes.

     

    With $200,000 I wouldn't really go out and splurge on stuff since it's really not that much, especially considering the amount that would go to the tax man (unless the $200,000 is after all that stuff, in which case it still isn't an extremely large amount of money).

      oh you won't have to worry about paying your student loans.....your state lottery will make sure you do before you get your cut of the money.........

        $200,000.00.  Hmmmm.  That's  $136,000.00 after taxes here in MO.  I would ride every roller coster

        in the US and maybe overseas.  Next I would finish my time machine then I would do a little work on

        my UFO.  Next I would launch my unmanned treasure hunting submersible in the gulf.  I would then

        go Bigfoot hunting down Ridges way.  I would buy the boss a couple hundred pairs of shoes to keep

        her occupied while I was away.  I would then build my cat a monster cat-tree with ramps that went

        all through the house.  Take a trip to the keys and maybe write a book or two.  Fly down to philly and

        have me a couple cheese stakes then up to NY for some pizza.  Make a couple runs in a top fuler and

        ride a barrel off niagara falls.  Stoe away on the shuttle and visit the space station.

          Not bad except for Philly in my opinion.

          I had wanted to go there for a Cheesesteak until I saw a documentary about those 2 places and found out the cheese they use is Cheez-Whiz.

          I have to go now, I just threw up a little in my mouth.

            Ride a sled down the steps of the temple at Pic-chichen-itza, climb the great pyramid at giza, push the

            leaning tower of pisa the rest of the way over.   Visit the Eagles nest and take a dumb on the floor.

            Climb Mount Everest and hang glide  off the top.  Visit the grave sites of William Powell and Merna Loy.

            Eat a very good snow cone and kill a couple clowns.   Buy the wife a ticket to willie wonka's chocolate

            factory.   See how many M&M's it would take to fill my bathtub.  Jump off my roof with a unbrella to see

            if it really works.  Go body surfing at pensacola to see if the pensa-oil makes it harder to ride the waves. 

            Launch a couple model rockets and sneek into area 51.  And then write a book about how I won the 

            lottery and charge 40 bucks a e-copy.

                I think the only thing I would buy right now if I won $200K is a nice used minivan for myself, since my SUV just got repossessed. Other than that, I would put the rest on my mortgage and maybe a little for a nice vacation.

                  In Louisiana, I'd get $140,000 after tax.  The first thing I'd do is pay off my mortgage and buy my wife a new car.  My car is only a year old that is already paid for, mainly because I was able to put almost 50% down on a new car because I got paid for my car being totaled last year and got some money for my injuries.

                  I'd also do some work on my house, mainly a new roof and some other repairs.  I'd also put some in mutual funds and in the bank, for the future.  I keep buying and keep hoping for the big win, maybe it will happen.

                        Yes. I love Target, Dollar General, Family Dollar, and CVS. Buy my two cats some fancy toys & furniture so they'll leave me alone more often.

                              I just finished readin all the posts and sure got a good chuckle at RD's " homo sapiens " lol , everyone seems to have a good idea what to do with 200,000 if they won it .


                              So here's what I'd do with 200,000.... I'd seek financial guidance to make a large majority of it grow into more , then I'd get the helll outta this " flat land ",  pack me an my 2 cats in the minivan and head for a mountainous part of the country , maybe back east ( where I'm originally from ) or maybe I'd go have a looky up in the northern part of the country see what it's like there , when I find a place I'd like to settle down in I'd find a nice little house with a wrap around porch with some rockin chairs on it and lottsa trees to shade it too ( someplace away from all the homo sapiens LOL ). Then I'd be at peace and be able to work on some of my ideas/designs and get them on the market so I could make MORE munny LOL and thennnnnn I'd buy enough land around where I live to have a shelter for all the unwanted , abused , neglected , homeless animals & people  .

                              Now if I were to hit the PB or Mega jackpot it would be a whole lot easier , ( not to mention faster )to do all these things .

                              So right now as it stands I feed a whole neighborhood of homeless cats & kits & possums etc . basically anyone or anything that's looks a mite hungry LOL

                              So iffin yer in the area an yer hungry stop by an I'll make sure ya git nice heapin plate O grits n corn meal mush , fried taters an a apple fritter fer dessert .LOL
