As far as potential windfalls are concerned, a hundred grand is an interesting amount of money.
It’s a tidy sum for anyone to be sure, but it’s hardly what Powerball jackpots and overnight retirements are made of. So, I want to know, what would you do with $100k?
While I would love to take a few months off to travel the world, buy a new car, and build my dream home on some acreage in Maine, my answer is pretty boring. If I were to receive $100,000, I’d pay off my remaining debts and sock the rest away in two accounts: one for a down payment on a home and another for general emergencies. If there were anything left, I guess I’d hit Hawaii in January.
