Hi all. Just exactly as the title says grin What would you spend it on?

Pay off car (£8000) then save £10,000. The rest would go on little things and a winter holiday.

Laser eye surgery for me

Good cut and colour for me (ie not the local Mrs Snippy Snippy Hair Salon)

Pay out any outstanding debts

A year with a private trainer

And save the rest

a decent pony club pony for ds4, and a nice yearling/2 yr old for me to have when dmare retires eventually. Rest on an allweather arena providing i could fool DH it was cheap (not being horsey he sees no reason to spend £15 k on a 20x40m area !shock)

Pay a chunk off mortgage if I had to be grown up

Buy a van to convert to a camper and drive to Siberia if I don't have to be. Grown up.

Tricky.

I would spend a small amount on something frivolous that I would never buy otherwise (like a Bally handbag or a Hermes scarf) and use the rest to finish off the renovations to our rental property.

This is happening to me in a few weeks! It is going to be our house deposit! 3 more months and we will hve saved up for all the fees etc associated! Can't wait! We would never get on housing ladder without grandads help!

Put into $250k mortgage. Every little helps get the huge interest down.

Pay about £15 k off the mortgage and use the rest to get married and have a honeymoon/holiday

Buy loads of booze and crisps, then I'd probably just fritter the rest away

New kitchen
Get married then have a holiday of a lifetime/honeymoon with the DCs

We actually inherited a bit more than that a few years ago we paid off debts, bought a much needed new car then spent the rest in a house extension.
