The Spending Game
I play this silly game in my mind where I deliberate over what I would do if I suddenly came upon x amount of money. It's usually good for a few minutes of entertainment when I'm really bored (like now) and serves as a gauge of what my priorities are right that very moment. Let's begin!
If I had an extra...
...One Million Pesos, I would use it to fully pay off one mortgage (Php550,000) and split the remaining money 50-50 to pay down the second mortgage and form part of our Central Europe fund for next year.
Easter 2016 in Prague!
...Five Hundred Thousand Pesos, again it would be split between paying of the mortgage and funding our Central Europe vacation, with the mortgage taking 4/5 of the cash and our vacation fund the remaining 1/5.
... One Hundred Thousand Pesos, mortgage payments would still be king but I would set aside enough cash to buy or have a cross leg dining table made. Our current dining table is plastic fantastic and I've been dying to upgrade to a wooden table. I'm really loving the distressed look and feel of this table:
One of my best childhood memories is playing under the dining table, creating forts on top of and around the table and then squeezing myself underneath it with my siblings and cousins. Thus I look forward for my son and his cousins to also discover the magic of pretend play and the endless possibilities that a dining table can offer if you only use your imagination.
... Ten Thousand Pesos, it would be spent on a dining table no doubt.
... One Thousand Pesos, I would buy a tube of Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color simply because lipstick guru Rae talks so highly of it, and for someone like her who takes her lipsticks seriously to give that level of praise means that this is The One. I'm thinking a fun, pink lippie would be a nice addition to the 2-3 tubes that I already have (excluding lip balms) since my lip color arsenal is mostly limited to reds and variations of red.
Okay, enough daydreaming and back to work! No way are those pre-employment forms going to fill themselves up.
