$Cash Money$ - Some Woulds and Wouldn'ts

I saw this really fantastic idea over on Venus Trapped in Mars with a list of things she WOULDN'T change if she won the lottery.

And I was excited and immediately started this post about it.  But... then my mind went blank and I couldn't think of anything.  So I'll start with the things I would do.

If I Was Filthy, Stinking Rich I Would...

(Disclaimer: for the purposes of this post, we'll assume I've already handled buying a house, putting away a sufficient amount for retirement, and paying off all outstanding debts.  Otherwise you guys will just get bored watching me put my ducks in a row.)
  1. Travel - Starting with the Amazon, and then on to Australia, the Galapagos Islands, and the Arctic circle.
  2. Doggie Daycare - Fun activities and friends for my pup all day, every day!
  3. Shop Without Price Checks - One of my favorite shirts is from Anthropologie, but I haven't been back because of the prices.  It would be awesome to only worry about one thing: "Does it look good?"
And here's the things I wouldn't change.

If I Was Filthy, Stinkin' Rich I Wouldn't Stop...

(Disclaimer: this didn't really need a disclaimer, but I wanted my formatting to match.)
  1. Designing - I love graphic design.  When I have no clients, I work on my website, my blog, and my personal branding.  I never stop designing.
  2. Shopping at Costco - Call me inconsistent, but some deals are important to me and others aren't.  Getting dog food for $35 instead of $50 is one of the former.
  3. Cutting My Own Hair - I might not be particularly good at it, but it's fun for me, and I really don't see the point of shelling out cash when my super straight hair is going to look the same regardless of how refined the layers are.
Note: these are probably the shortest lists you'll ever see from me, so enjoy the brevity.  We're back to dissertation mode after these messages.

What things would you do if you suddenly became wealthy?  What things wouldn't you do?
