What would you do with $5000 each week FOREVER?

July 18, 2013

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting sponsored by Publishers Clearing House. I received a product sample and promotional item as a thank you for participating.

Special thanks to Publishers Clearing House for sponsoring today’s discussion!


I remember when I was little, seeing people on TV being surprised right at their front door with a huge check. I was pretty young but I’m sure that is one of the things that got me interested in giveaways and contests as well as a positive outlook with a lot of hope! My grandmother would take the time to mail in envelopes with entries just about every week! I was lucky enough to sometimes help her put the stickers on them indicating magazines we were ordering. These days there is a far more easy way to enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes online.

The “Forever” Prize lets you leave a legacy for your loved ones. Win, and you’d get $5,000 a week for your life, then after that, you’d get to choose someone to receive $5,000 a week for their life! It’s unlike any other PCH prize — and it’s GUARANTEED to be awarded this August!


I have entered this contest already and have several ideas of what I would do with the prize money. Yes, I would start by quitting my part time job. I would love to be a stay at home mom again! As a matter of fact, Hubby could quit his job too. That might not be the most glamorous thing to do with the money but it’s what would work for our family. $5000 a week would more than cover our bills and allow us to enjoy each others company more without worrying about the bills. Time spent together is time well spent!

There is another option we might consider. Having us both at home all the time could get boring. Perhaps we could still work, Hubby could work part time instead of full time and we could do some traveling. We never had a honeymoon and I have always wanted to go to Ireland to take photos! This could also allow us to start our own business. I have always wanted to be a photographer but that isn’t exactly steady work. The possibilities are endless!

The amazing (and tough) part is that you get to select someone to continue to receive the $5000 a week after you. I would have a hard time choosing someone. Obviously I would want to choose my husband but what if he isn’t around then? Probably my oldest daughter. I trust that she would make good decisions with it and take care of her siblings as well.

Do you have any ideas about what you would do with $5000 a week? Who would you choose to inherit your prize?

    I’d pay off my student loans, finish my degree, get a Master’s so I could add Reading Specialist on top of my ENL certification I’m working towards, set back some to set up a college fund for the Boy, set back some for a college fund for others, send a significant amount to my family, and let my hubby have part of it to pay off the rest he and his business partners owe on the game shop they’re working on establishing. Also: Heck yes, health insurance and dental care and new glasses whenever I need them. 😛
