    New bathrooms and a new kitchen. Our house is old. It would cost, conservatively, in the tens of thousands. Our attic room ought to be thrown in, too, as lagniappe at that point – at least some new flooring up there.

  2. Scbarr says:

    A new car for my wife. Hers is 12 years old and she drives it constantly to go to her various clients’ houses. I’ve been out of work for 8 months.

  3. Bill says:

    Health insurance so I could have the option of returning to the US.

  4. PurpleGirl says:

    A new mattress would be the first thing bought; but I also would like to replace an office chair, the stove and refrigerator, toaster oven, microwave, TV.

    I need a new minivan.

    Progressive politicians.

    A Villa in Monaco…

  17. Jim Pharo says:

    Health insurance for my family, a simple pine box for me…

    You know? I am super-lucky, having a good job and a good living situation (live in my mother’s house–albeit being her caretaker, but it is still payment free)–I can pretty much afford most anything I want. However, I am not buying whatever I want because who knows if I will still have the good job? So I keep my money in savings and just buy what is necessary. Well, I do count booze as necessary…

  19. gil mann says:

    Happiness. And if I’ve got any money left over, love, though I suspect the CW re: the buyability of the latter is a little more solid than that of the former.

    I’d buy the Government back, they sell out ridiculously cheaply anyway.
