What Would YOU Do With $7,000 A Week For Life?

Would You Spend Or Save

Hello Everyone!

I’m SO excited about our upcoming $7,000 a Week for Life Prize Event! I mean it’s our LARGEST WEEKLY LIFETIME PRIZE EVER! How cool is that? With THAT much money, you can’t help but dream about all the ways you could spend it! From fancy vacations to shopping sprees, the possibilities are ENDLESS! For some people, living the good life and spending ALL this money on whatever life has to offer seems like the only way to go, but for others, they may have bigger plans in the works for their new fortune!

It’s got to be a hard choice deciding whether to work towards something GRAND, or to indulge in the moment. To help gain some outside perspective about what others would do in this situation, I turned to my co-workers to find out if they would SPEND IT or SAVE IT! Even though they can’t win because they work here, their answers may surprise you!

The first person I asked was one of our Social Media interns, Genevieve P.! Genevieve told me that deciding whether to spend or save is definitely a tough choice for her, but in the end, she would do BOTH! She said that she would save some of the money to pay for her college tuition, but also spend some of the money to invest in a reliable car, and a new house for her father. That’s SO sweet of you, Genevieve!

I went on to ask Brooke O. what she would do with all that CA$H! Brooke told me that she would have NO PROBLEM spending all of that money! I’m with you girl! Even though she mentioned that she would splurge on luxurious vacations and possibly a boat, she also said that saving for a house would be VERY important to her. Good choice, Brooke!

Morgan B. told me that when it comes to $7,000 a Week for Life, she would save that money and use it to pay off her college loans! What a GREAT idea Morgan! Way to better yourself for the future!

Finally, I decided to ask Amanda C. Apparently, saving AND splurging is her way to go! She told me that first, she would splurge a good chunk of her money to land her dream home (AW!), and then save the rest and make it last! You might need a bigger piggy bank, Amanda! :)

As for myself, I would save most of it, but spend some on a nice family vacation. I would love the opportunity to bring my parents to Greece or Italy and visit family I never was able to meet!

$7,000 a Week for Life is DEFINITELY A LOT of money to have at your fingertips, so having a game plan on what to do with all of it might be a smart choice! Think about what you would do – spend, save, or maybe BOTH, and comment below and let us know!

And remember what I always say — you can’t win it if you’re not in it! Be sure to keep entering every day!

Re; $7,000 a week, I have 5 families it would be shared with, so many demands plus 10% to the Lords work. I’d like to think we could do some traveling thanks to PCH. We also need some home decorating with minor repairs here and there. Thanks for your consideration. .

Of course I would give to charity. Help build programs for people who want to work,a vehicle, babysitting, finish school. If a single mother has no one to turn too, she can not get ahead, will always be in poverty. I am speaking from experience.

Would be a excellent cause.

You have to be prepared. I would donate some to the Shriner’s Burns Hospital, UC Hospital, OSU Hospital. MY Parents and my husband’s family. And finally, I would give some to my family, aunts, uncles and cousins. I would have to share with them. So, that’s what I would do with $7,000 a week.

If I won $7,0000.00 a week I would definitely pay all my debts and give to charity. I prefer to help out my church because they are community oriented even though the church is small, it would be great to help them find a bigger space to worship.

I would like to save for a home and reliable car.

Also, take a trip to see my family in the MidWest. I miss them all so much.
