If I had a million dollars....

This is Day 26 of my Journaling through January series.

If you had 1 million dollars that you had to spend, but you couldn't spend it on yourself, what would you do?

Oooo, I like this one. I have a nice long list all ready. (And I hope that spending it on my family doesn't count as "myself.")

  1. Do some things for my parents that they've been wanting to do for a long time. This would take up a good chunk of money.
  2. Start college funds for my kids.
  3. Take Tyler's family on a roadtrip. It's their favorite thing to do in the world. :)
  4. Donate a chunk to that one charity that helps children with cleft pallets. You know the one I'm talking about? I can't remember their name.
  5. Donate money to the LDS Church's fund for sending families in third-world countries to the temple.
  6. Donate another chunk to the Utah Food Bank.
  7. Buy a lot of children's books for my kids.
  8. Buy a 1 year supply of freeze-dried food storage for our family, my husband's parents, and my parents.
  9. Help my husband start a business.
  10. Keep a few hundred bucks for giving to newlyweds, first-time parents, missionaries, etc.
Well, I think that just about spends my million dollars. How would you spend it?

Journaling through January is a series that can be found on


  1. This is an awesome list! I too would want to use a chunk for my parents!

  2. Anyone who said they had no idea what they would do with a million dollars would no longer be on my "Christmas Letter" list. That is if I had one…
