From an extra $50 that flew into your pocket to thousands of dollars from a bonus or lottery win, what would you do with the extra money? Save it, invest it or spend it on something flashy?

I'd probably pay off the mortgage, invest some and use the rest for my travels. I'd also like to donate some to some special charities and causes that mean a lot to me.
If it was a huge windfall, I'd buy a house and then travel and donate some to charity. If it was only $50, I'd buy something nice for myself like a new top or organic skincare.
I really don't know what I would do first.
I would probably buy my kids a house, depending on how much I received.
However, if it was only $50 I would just put it in my purse and spend it like I always do!
I am retired so my super is all set up, so would possibly buy something else for the house that I normally would not buy myself.

$50 I would stock my pantry.

Fix my shower, badly rusted front steps, and gutters....and put wooden slats all around my house, for ventilation.
If there is enough money would step up to a two bedroom place, so my son no longer has to sleep in the lounge room.
Then if there is some money over, it would be put to very good use, in my ministry.

Ment to say if a 'windfall' then fix my shower ect ect.....

Travel ... travel ... travel ... and if there was money left then probably buy a house or an apartment.
Gift my dad and mum an all paid cruise trip.

If it was a small amount, say $50-100 then I'd buy a new pair of shoes (these ones are all worn out). But if it was $10k or above, I would use that money to help mum buy herself a unit or a house.
Pay for life saving medication for my sister, and post anonymous cheques to friends and family.
I would clear all my debts then put some away for a rainy day. The other thing I would do is to take my family on an overseas trip. I would also make my Mom and Dad very happy in this stage of their life.
As we don’t have a mortgage, & have enough money invested, I would spend it on a 3 bedroom unit in Melbourne, & go on many, many more cruises than we do now. Having lots of money, doesn’t always make people happy, especially if they send it unwisely.
I would pay off all the debts and travel. I have always said that I would like to buy my kids a house each, but probably not enough to do that. If it was only 50 dollars I might go out for lunch.
