I'm not sure that I'd do a whole lot different. I'd probably just be cranking the additional money into a retirement fund. My wife would probably have a newer car, and we might go out to eat a little more often. I'd definitely want to take longer and more vacations, but I can't really get away that much at this point.

I wouldn't be taking out near as many student loans, and also I wouldn't have to bum money off of my grammy (it makes me sick to do that).

Moooo

Yeah, isn't your spending habits a directly proportional to the amount of income you have. :hmmm:

I'd actually have a retirement fund, a college fund for my daughter and a house where I didn't have to share a bathroom with 2 girls.

Oh, and season tickets to the Royals or whatever team we get to occupy the Sprint Center.

I'd pay some dutchmen to set fire to Lord Stanley.

I'd be able to buy that new personality I've had my eye on.

That would be great. I would just have to take out just a little student loan for my housing expenses. But that's about it. I don't make too much yet.

I'd pay-off the rest of the mortgage on this infernal money pit that I currently reside in. :banghead:

Normally I don't advocate buying things on credit cards, but in this case...

I'd be taxed so high my take home would be the same.

Remove my resume from Monster, 1st of all. Then pay off bad debt, and throw everything above current budget needs into early retirement and kids' college funds.

At this point, with no wife or kids, I'd definitely work on getting my student loans paid off.

On second that, screw that, I think I'd like to save up and do a cross country vacation for an entire summer, seeing as I have the summers off. Maybe take my dad on a tour of MLB stadiums.

Since 65% of it would probably go into taxes I wouldn't do a whole hell of a lot different than I do now. Bastards.

I'd still be doing what I'm doing because I love what I'm doing, perhaps be doing more of it. This includes both my jobs being a mom and designing, illustrating. I'd just be able to be choosier about projects and get my kid back into piano lessons and horse back riding.

I'd cut my hours to half and make as much as I did if I was working FT.
