#Spend20K Challenge – what would you do?

We all dream about winning the Lotto… I sure do! I run different scenarios in my head every now and then… different amounts of money, different approaches to spending it, all the different turns our life could take if we did win.

The Lotto game is changing on the 5th October, giving players more chances to win more prizes. Players will get £25 for matching 3 numbers in the draw (up from £10) and 4 numbers (from £60 to £100), and a new raffle guarantees at least 50 winners of £20,000 each draw! And the best bit? When the jackpot rolls, so does the raffle, meaning hundreds more guaranteed £20,000 prizes!

I like the new rules! More chances to win… it looks like it is the time to start playing again.

So what would I do with 20k?

I struggled a little with the answer as there are several different roads I would love to take:

  • Pay off a chunk of the mortgage – being mature
  • Build an extension to the house above the garage – being sensible
  • Buy a new car – my “small truck” like Toyota Hilux would be just perfect – being hopeful
  • Or… make Mark happy – this might be my preferred option… so what does he wants?

Mark wants to have a BBQ shack! It doesn’t have to be fancy or big, or in prime location… as long as he can make his burgers, smoke ribs and pulled pork he would be happy. So I would try to turn this 20k into Mark’s dream. We would get a BBQ truck… maybe something like this…

Not ideal but it would do to start with

Or maybe we would be able to start with some wooden hut somewhere in the countryside just like this one…

Somewhere to cook good slow food

It would be nice to do what you love!

So keep your fingers crossed for us. Maybe one day we will be able to make this dream come true.

  1. I hope the change in Lotto will bring a lot of luck to the hopeful winners. 20k is a lot of money. Maybe I will put the money in the bank and invest in a worthy business or stock market. The BBQ shack and the truck look very nice. It is not a bad idea to make someone happy.

  2. I will cross all my paws – but when Mark has his BBQ-Shack and you have the giant Truck of your dreams – please take a ride with me ( you can park directly on the street in front of my crib, no parking assistance needed).

I love all comments :-)
