They say the odds of winning the lottery are very slim, but when it actually happens to you, it’s like all of your wildest dreams came true! Winning the lottery was life-changing for me.
I’ve already covered 5 things you should buy as part of my 5 best places to live post if you are lucky enough to come into some cash but since then I’ve changed my mind a little. Here’s my updated list of top 5 things to buy after a lottery win!
1. A Mansion
The first thing any new millionaire decides to do typically is splurge on a new crib. When I say “splurge,” I mean splurge — what better asset to invest in than your home?
After a lottery win, there is no excuse not to pull out all the stops on your brand new home.
Have you always wanted a pool? Go for it! Why stop there?
Go ahead and install a waterslide and a jacuzzi. You want a personal tennis court and horse stable?
You got it! After winning the lottery, your dream home is only a stone’s throw away.
I bought a big house and fancy cars when I won before I realized that I wanted to downscale and have a more relaxed life on the beach.
2. A New Car
After you win the lottery, you will want to cruise in style.
Your Honda Civic just won’t cut it anymore. I personally chose to treat myself to a blacked-out 2018 Range Rover, but the choice is yours.
Will you go with a Ferrari, or maybe a Maserati? Any model with any features you can imagine is available to you for only a small cut of your new fortune.
3. A Sailboat
Once I found myself with my huge sum of lottery winnings and no need to work ever again, I knew I needed a new hobby.
After dabbling with fast cars I soon got bored. I then chose one of sophistication, one that can truly showcase my new-found wealth — sailboat restoration.
After I bought my first sailboat, I spent day after day on the beach, restoring my new boat while the sandy breeze blew through my hair and the waves lapped at my feet.
They say when you love your job, you never work a day in your life; the same is true about winning the lottery.
4. Doomsday Bunker
These are just for preppers!
It’s just a fact that when the end of the world comes, those lucky enough to survive will be those with the money and resources to wait out the catastrophe.
This is why winning the lottery gives you the perfect opportunity to prepare for and survive the end of the world.
What’s a million or two dollars when it is an investment to save your life? Don’t let the end of the world catch you off guard.
Dig an underground bunker beneath your house.
Stock up on those canned beans and water bottles.
5. Private Jet
You need to win big to be able to afford this one.
How could you win the lottery and still fly coach? Your lottery winnings will give you the perfect opportunity to travel in style with your own private jet.
It’s definitely pricey, but think about it this way: all the leg room you could need, plus you never have to worry about missing a flight again.
Plus, with all this new money and a new jet, you might as well go all out and get your pilot’s license so you can operate your shiny new jet!
