What would you do with 100 smack-a-roos?


One hundred dollars that is.  What would you do with 100 fresh, crisp, green dollar bills, or one Benjamin?

There would be no restrictions, no requirements, nada.  Just “hey, here’s $100, do whatever you want.”
100 dollar bill question
What would I do with $100?

First, I’d have to tell you what I should do.  Since we are on the Dave Ramsey plan and any and all extra money should go to our car payment, I should put it towards that.

However, what would I really do?

I think I would spend every.single.penny.on.myself!  Seriously, I would.  And, I would probably buy clothes with it.  My favorite jeans have booty pockets with buttons on them.  Well, I should say had because, really, those buttons are long gone.  And, my other jeans have a spot that is this.close to becoming a hole.

So, yeah, I’d probably buy some jeans.  And, some chocolate…maybe some chocolate, too…or cheetos?  Better get back to my shred…

So, what would you do with $100? 

Kodak and JuiceBoxJungle sponsored me to write this fun post, about what I’d do with a surprise extra $100 if someone handed it to me next month.

  14. Ooooo! How fun! I think I would treat my hubby to a romantic dinner for Valentine's Day. I always feel silly getting him presents and stuff because he is the only one that earns money in this family. So when I buy him presents it is kind of like, "Hey, honey! Look what I bought you with your money!" I know it is "our" money and he always reminds me of that, but I still feel like it is his money sometimes. It would be nice to treat him with money he didn't have to work for. 😉

  22. I'd probably use it to treat my parents to dinner out somewhere as a thank you to them for helping me so much this year, I'd use a little bit to purchase some workout pants, and if there was any leftover I'd help one of my friends who's also struggling financially right now. I really have so many ways I could use $100 and want to help so many others that I know I couldn't do it all but it would at least be a start.
