Tell me how to spend my money

#1 Postby Mini Forklift Ⓥ » Sun Aug 18, 2013 1:53 am

Just looking for a few ideas, just had an unexpected cheque of around $15k in the mail yesterday.

So what would you guys buy or do with it? Boring or reckless?

I'm always super responsible. So if it was me, I would put a lump sum on my mortgage, or put it in savings or RSP. The government always wants their share.. so be careful about that if you have not already given them their cut. :roll:

You could go a little less 'boring' than me and do a half fun/half responsible sort of split. That'll cover your bases.
If it's important to you, you'll find a way. If it isn't, you'll find an excuse.

Invest it or put it on credit cards/mortgage etc. Might also consider using a bit for solid assets like gold/silver/platinum etc. Take a little bit and go whoopie with the kids and wife.

Send it my way, kind sir! I'll put it to good use, and besides, it'll give you good karma :D

Cheers CY :D Our house is freehold and the cars, motorbikes and everything else we paid for in cash. Credit card we pay off each month, so we don't really have any debt apart from bills etc. I'm actually thinking of donating some of the money to Heart Children NZ and SAFE:
