WIN YOURSELF $400 TO PUT TOWARDS YOUR DREAM WISHLIST – What Would You Wish For?

***THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU FOR ENTERING***
CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WINNER:

For someone who always puts my kids and family needs first the conservative person in me would put $5000 towards bills, getting my teeth fixed finally, car serviced and a few house repairs but the new carefree me would either book a well earned Bali holiday, new clothes and shoes and a day of pampering !! We can all dream right ....

If you could have access to say mmm five thousand dollars to spend on whatever you want – what would you spend it on?

I am sooo good at this game.

Probably because I am very, very good at spending money and given that with this game, there are no hindering factors like whether you actually have the money sitting in your account or not; it’s very easy to get carried away.

There are literally so many things I could happily splash $5000 on, but here are five things at the top of my list.


1.  I’d clear my credit card debt. I know, I know BORING. But given I’m paying a fair amount of interest on the $5000 I currently owe on my credit card, I could save heaps by paying off my balance and switching to a much MUCH lower interest rate to a credit card rate. It would be my sensible ‘look out here comes the fun police’ grown up kind of choice.


Ok now I have the ‘I’m so mature’ choice out of the way, I’m going to go and blow the rest on some fun stuff and with that being the case - number 2 on my list would involve leaving the kids with the grandparents for a week.

2. A cool $5000 could be very well spent on one of those wellbeing retreats in the hills of Ubud in Bali for the hubby and I. 

Yup, I’ve always fancied doing one of those healthy living retreats in Bali where you spend your days meditating and having massages and reiki, then spend the evening sitting on a tree top deck overlooking the lush green forests of Bali drinking bubbles and contemplating the greater meaning of life. 

What? 

You don’t get bubbles on a healthy living retreat? 

Ha, you do on my wish list!

3. Hmmm, speaking of Bali, I rather fancy myself a backyard Balinese style makeover with a water feature. 

Clearly I have a thing for Bali happening here. 

We have been talking about redoing the back garden for ages but we have never had the spare cash sitting in the bank. Money well spent I’d say given we could enjoy this indefinitely … as long as I don’t kill the plants of course.


4.  I saw a for sale sign on an old Vespa when I was driving through Surry Hills recently. Granted it wasn’t as pretty as this one, but at $2000 ono I would have had spare change in the bank to spruce it up, get it humming and make her all pretty. 

We will just ignore the fact that Carl, my husband, is dead set against me ever riding one of these because… no rules with this wish list right?!

5.  Last item for the list… today (because I am sure I’ll have a whole new list by this time next week) would be to pay someone to come and finish painting the stairwell that I began painting a year ago and then lost interest when I couldn’t reach the ceiling. Heck, I’d get them to paint as much of the house that $5000 could buy me because I cannot see myself getting enthusiastic about painting again anytime in the near future.


See how fun that is?!

Now what if you really could have access to that money – and you actually got to choose something from your wish list to spend it on? Would you consolidate your credit card debt, go on a fancy pants holiday, do some renos or pick yourself up some new wheels?

Hmmmmm tempting isn’t it?!
