So you have finally done it. After months and months of entering sweepstakes, answering questions, and making sure that you got in to all of the free online competitions that are available, you have finally made the cut and won. You won a lot of money and now you have to decide how to spend it. Here are some options that can make the decision easier.
Pay off Debts
While this might not be the most glamorous option, it is sure going to help you out in the long run. It would not be much fun to win all of that money, spend it, and then find that you still have a lot of bills to pay at the end of the month. Take care of at least the most pressing bills. Of course, if you didn’t win the million dollar jackpot, it is fine to put a little bit back in order to spend it on yourself and just pay off one or two bills.
Go on a Trip
You worked hard for that money so why not spoil yourself a bit and go on a nice trip. This can open up a lot of possibilities and depending on the amount of money that you won, you can really have a lot of fun. Try to pick a place that you might not have gone otherwise or some place that you have never been to before. This is free money that you won and you might not have a chance to do it again. So live it up and have as much fun as you can.
Since you have a little bit of extra money, why not make sure to pamper yourself just a little bit. Some people find that this is hard to do because they are so used to spending money on the house, their spouses, or their kids and other family. But you were the one that spent all of that time putting information in to forms, looking for competitions or product testing, and doing all of the other work that was required to win.
Make sure that you put back at least a little bit of the money so that you can be on your own and have some fun. Go and get a massage, get your hair or nails done, or just go out to eat at a fancy restaurant you couldn’t have afforded before. It is all about you with this money so enjoy it.
