This whole “Inspired to Abundance” adventure is proving to be so much fun! I love that as the sums get larger, I must be more creative to imagine ways in which I would actually and realistically spend that much. This is great! Stay tuned for how the remaining sums will be allocated by myself and Family.
Getting on the road and ready to go!
The sum to spend is $25,000:
$17,000 – Used Car in Excellent Condition
$6,000 – Insurance for 1 Year as a New Driver
$2,000 – Gas Card
∴ With a bonus sum of $25,000 at the ready, I would get a used car that was in excellent condition, cover my insurance for a year, and get a hand dandy gas card to make the tootling around with my Family possible. Woot!
All the places we would go!
The sum to spend is $10,000:
$5,000 – Trip to Niagara Falls, ON., for 4 (Includes: airfare, hotel, and spending cash)
$5,000 – Trip to Victoria, BC, for 4 (Includes: airfare, hotel, and spending cash)
∴ With an extra $10,000 laying around, I would take my family to two of the places in Canada that we’d very much like to visit. Niagara Falls, Ontario, because my Mister has family out there he hasn’t seen for quite some time, and Victoria, BC, for myself and for the same reason.
I suppose I really should get serious about getting my driver’s license.
The sum to spend is $5,000:
$3,600 – Driver’s Training Courses for 4 People
$400 – Learner’s License Exams & Cards for 4 People
$600 – Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum
$200 – KitchenAid® 4.5-Quart Bowls x 4
$80 – KitchenAid® Wire Whip Attachment x 4
$60 – KitchenAid® 6-Speed Hand Mixer
$60 – KitchenAid® Stainless Steel Turbo Beaters
∴ With an extra $5,000 laying around, I would first take myself and three of my most important family members for Driver’s Training courses, then cover the costs of the written exams and the Learner’s Licenses. With what was left, I would replace my Dyson vacuum with an updated model, then invest in a few more pieces of KitchenAid® equipment to make baking and business production more efficient.
