js250 js250
You have a choice, you can choose $5000 or $1000 as a free, one time gift that never has to be paid back. But there are strings attached...which one do you choose and why?

--$5000 cash.
**You cannot pay bills, invest or save the money.
**Every penny must be spent on YOU--no one else.
**No necessities can be purchased, must be luxury/enjoyable purchases.

--$1000 cash.
**Spend however you want.
**No saving or investing.
**No giving it away.

I'd choose the $5000. With that spare money, I could devote every penny of my paycheck to bills for months on end, and still be able to enjoy myself.

I wonder if someone would honestly choose $1000 over $5000. I've got to pay my bills somehow anyway, I'll always be able to find money for that. But how awesome it would be to spend $5000 all on myself!

5,000.

First purchase: Moderate sized tv, new computer, and put enough up to buy a new console when the next generation ones hit.

Second purchase: Some travel with my camera.

I would choose the $5,000 dollars. I never really get much for myself I always pay bills and take care of the kids before myself. It would be nice to not have to pay bills out of that money. I would also get the kids something too because it would not feel right.

I think the $5000 sounds good. My partner and I have enough income to comfortably cover our bills and daily expenses with some left over to build a moderate savings account. However, because we choose to save everything we can, we don't have any money for ourselves. I've only bought two pairs of jeans since I was in high school...and they were 60% off at American Eagle. I'm also wearing glasses that are 4 years old and they've been broken for 2 years.

I need some new stuff.

$5000..I'd buy a car for myself, I do consider that a luxury/enjoyable item because I've never had one.

Do I have to blow it all at once, or is spreading it over a few months considered 'saving' it.

I would have an EXTREMELY hard time buying only for myself. I can think of lots of things I would love to have, but I feel selfish if I get anything for myself that isn't necessary.

Eh...two weeks...$5000...only on myself!? It would be tough..like, really tough!! I might be able to handle it, but it would be difficult. What about things you and your partner could use together? Would that be enough of a 'you' thing?

$5000 on myself. I have too many things on my list that need to be done for me. Plus, I'm then not draining house expenses for them.

$5,000, without a doubt. I can upgrade to first class, and upgrade some hotel stay. It's all good.

I'd take the $5000 and finally buy a nice computer, reliable tablet, and a one way ticket out of here.

$5000 would be my choice easy! Think of all the great new toys I could buy and try out, ooh, and I love eating out, or maybe a high end cruise. Yeah big time!

I'd pretty much do the same. As much as I could use $1k for necessities right now, I'll get by and it's tough to pass up an extra $4k.
