, what I would do if $N dropped into my lap in some legal non-taxable (or post-tax) way:
$10: Just keep it in my wallet, I think, because I never have cash and I know I should.
$100: Buy curtains for my living room. It *almost* looks perfect, guys!
$1000: Two new pairs of glasses. (Yes, that would take most of it. Ultralight progressive multifocals.)
$10,000: Pay down debt.
$100,000: Pay off debt entirely. Pay most of Elayna's college education? Depends where she ends up going! Make it so she's not encumbered by hella student loans, at the very least.
$1,000,000: We'd buy the dream house. Which, in many of the dreams, is a dream apartment building that we remake to fill our own purposes, with apartments for everyone who we want to live with us (and some apartments kept for visitors, and one or two set aside for writer/artist residencies) + big communal spaces, including a house concert venue and an amazing kitchen, and... that takes more than a million. (Yes, I still want Tamson House. You must admit that Boston would be a perfect place for it.)
