    If I won the money, I would use it to build up my crafting supplies. Fabric, a serger, yarn, paint. Just what ever I can think of to craft. I'm just beginning to learn how to craft all these new projects. I'm a part time employee with more time on my hands and I need something to fill all my spare time with. I really enjoy reading your blog and this contest has lead me to many more blogs that I really enjoy!

  62. Jenna says:

    I'd put the money toward our future Thailand trip – we postponed it when I got pregnant, but it WILL happen someday.

  67. The Ellsies says:

  68. Ah I would make it stretch! Mommy friends clothes! Fabric for my projects! Date night! Help us move! Lots of DI trips! I would die!

  69. It would help us out with saving for a down payment on a house! And probably buy me something pretty πŸ˜‰

  71. EllenQ says:

  73. Marily says:

    I'd use this on our vacation to Dallas this summer!

  74. ny says:

  94. Amy says:

    I'd buy a plane ticket to my cousin's wedding, then maybe a pair of boots or shoes for myself, and the balance to take family mini-vacations on a few weekends this summer!

  95. I would definitely treat myself to a vacation after graduating from college in a few months… or maybe pay back loans πŸ˜‰

  96. Sammi says:

    I would use it to help pay for college! (I'm attending a year early-I'll be 17)

  99. joyce* says:

    disneyland with my parents:)

  100. Anny says:

    For a frugal spender like me, I would probably raid all the thrift stores around the metro for fab finds. Then i'd probably go on vacation and look for thrift stores and spend some more there. And maybe buy myself an iPhone so i can show everyone what i found! πŸ˜€

  101. Kara says:

    I would finally buy myself some pants! Haha – I'm 6'4" and had a baby a few months ago, so I've had a bit of trouble finding some pants to fit me postpartum πŸ™‚
