Ok...the Power Ball is $87 million this week...we've been talking and everyone seems to say "Well, I'd be happy with just $10 million" or "with $1 million"...

how much money would put a smile   on your face? (Notice I didn't say make you happy because we all know money can't buy happiness!!)

I'd be tickled with a half million. That would pay off bills and leave some left over to be comfortable for awhile.

How can you save me?

Simply winning a quarter on a heads or tails brings a smile to my face-- because regardless of the prize it is given to the "winner"...heh

Hmm..Yanno..Enough to get me out of debt right now would make me happy. That way, I could concentrate money on more important things. Have a fresh start, not screw up financially so much, etc..etc..Is there anyone here who thinks that it is possible once out of debt, not to get yourself in trouble again?

And if I had to go one step less...I'd want at least enough to catch everything up a couple of months ahead.

I guess it depends on how you look at it.

I've never bought a lottery ticket, so perhaps that means I'm not motivated by money. Or it means the pot just hasn't gotten big enough yet.

I'd probably be really happy at 1 million, and I'd probably go into a coma at 5 million!

87 million... good God! Why am I underage? Why are my parents avid Bible-beaters who wouldn't gamble to save their lives?????

Temptress- Just wanted to let you know that yes we are all out of debt. Paid off everything, I don't work anymore and hubby took a less paying job without too much stress and he loves it. Sold big house bought nice travel trailer, big enough for kids to visit but not move back home. No we don't travel just enjoy the benefit of not having to pay yearly taxes on it. I can truthfully say we have never been happier. Of course I'm 48 so you have a ways to go before you get this old. We pay as we go in life now. Remember it's not how much money you make it's how much you get to keep.

I want it all.   Not so much for ME, you understand, but there's at least 15 people I'd have to give a million to just to go away...and then there's taxes and trust funds for the kids and of course, a little matter of buying that town, a six month slumber party for the poets of passions, and I always wanted to own my own parade, oh...and let's not forget, I've got a very expensive UNCLE that needs tending to FIRST...Sam? oh "uncle sam?" come say hello to the folks!

Just enough money to pay out the debts and enough left to travel on. Ahhhhh, glorious travel.
I wanna see "The Wall" before I die, and maybe go on back to Massachusetts to see if the "old school" still looks the same, spend some time in Mexico and San Diego, and, and, etc.

Today a friend asked if I could use a few dollars till payday.  This friend has already done more for me than I ever could've imagined.  And then to offer more without my asking (and I wouldn't have asked because she's done enough) was way beyond what I could've hoped for when I woke up this morning worried about how I was going to get through the next couple of days.  So, to answer your question...today $20 put a smile on my face and in my heart.  A few years ago I would've felt poor with a mere $20 in my pocket.  Today, I feel like I've been given all the breathing space I need for a good nights sleep.

All of it.

I'd like exactly enough money to live on and send children to college, buy a yacht.. small country...

Naw.. how about enough for a pool cue, a nice shiny pretty one that has green on it?

Inot,
Thanks for answering, and some days I feel I don't have that far to go until that age; but then again, I stubbornly say that 48 isn't very old at all.   Its great that you guys got out of debt. I think its possible. It just takes a little more discipline.  

JLR,
AWWWW! You just brought tears to my eyes!   What a sweet gift from a friend,(and I don't mean the money really) and a sweet story to hear you tell it.

Maybe money can't buy you happiness... but it can sure make a great down payment on it.

Enough to buy (or build) my mom any house, anywhere she wanted; a new car, and a tight sum to keep her living very comfortably for the rest of her years.

Then, the same for me and my future family.
