Every year for Christmas, we found scratch-off lottery tickets in our stockings. It was a tradition, and something fun to receive because you never knew if you’d win. I remember watching my mom go to the gas station and buy a Powerball® ticket once it hit “really big” amounts, and obviously, we never won big, but we all had our dreams and “what if” moments. It was fun to play then and it’s even more fun to play now because the new Lottery Card™ lets you play from your phone – you send in the code and receive your numbers via text message. No more paper ticket to track or clip to the fridge, and no more checking those numbers because now if you win – THEY SEND YOU A TEXT.
My mom would have flipped. I’m pretty sure had she ever won, we would have seen go to many Rod Stewart concerts and Atlanta Braves baseball games. She probably would have hired a maid too, I know I would.
Speaking of, you have to share in the comments what your million dollar dreams are! I’m giving away TWENTY $20 Lottery Card™, so look before for details on that! This will be open to OHIO residents, ages 18 and up.

Now, let’s talk million dollar dreams!
Years ago I would have wanted to buy houses and cars, and just spend all the money on stuff but now that I’m older, my dreams have definitely changed. I feel like now I would be much more responsible and start with paying off ALL debts – including the mortgage. We could rent this house out and create an affordable living space for a family in our community and buy what I really, really want – a beach house or a sweet decked out skoolie (that’s a school bus turned into a home).
I would set aside a large portion into retirement funds for both of us, as well as several months (or years I suppose, depending on the winning total) of living expenses. I would also make sure that we have funds in place for property taxes and maintenance, especially if we were renting out our previous home. See, very sensible!
I would then make sure accounts are in place for each of the kids, with a substantial amount to help them once they reach 18. Whether it’s school, or travel, or buying their first home, they’d have the money.
I would also make sure that I was investing and putting my money to work, so that would all get figured out too.
I would definitely want to travel, so we could either rent out our beach home while we are gone, or travel the states in our skoolie. I’d love to go back to Paris, but I would be open to just spinning the globe and picking a country at random!
Now it’s your turn! Ten lucky winners will each win TWO cards! Must live in Ohio and be 18+ to enter.
