Returning to the question at hand, my immediate response is one word – Ferrari! My passion for the prancing horse runs deep; unfortunately, my bank account does not. Besides, the ride I really want (1985 288 GTO) still would be cost-prohibitive given that the most recent example to cross the auction block sold at just shy of $4 million! And is it just me or does anyone else have their grandmother’s voice somewhere in their ear admonishing them “not to spend it all in one place”?
Admittedly, my perspective on how to spend (or save, or donate) the money is somewhat skewed so I decided to hit up PCHsearch&win with the query, “what would you do with $1 million?” And as luck would have it, atop the search results was a recent Business Insider article that asked the same question of 14 people on the streets of New York City. Believe it or not, the most common response was helping out family members, followed by investing in real estate or the stock market. And that’s beside the fact that a million bucks doesn’t go as far in Manhattan, New York, as it does in Manhattan, Kansas, or even Manhattan, Montana!
Depending on how you look at it, $1,000,000 can either be a whole lot of money or not that much money. Look at it this way – if you laid dollar bills end-to-end, you’d have a stretch of nearly 97 miles before you reached $1 million. Alternately, $1,000,000 in hundred-dollar bills would fit nicely into a briefcase, just like you see in the movies. Regardless of how you look at it, $1,000,000 definitely could provide you with quite a few necessities – rent, groceries, car repairs, etc. – along with some well-deserved toys, like a nice, long vacation!
At the end of the day, it seems to me that most people would agree with the statement that wondering what to do with $1 million is a pretty good problem to have!
So now it’s your turn, PCH fans. And the question is, “what would you do with $1,000,000?” From the ridiculous to the sublime, all comments are welcome, so let me hear it!
