Friday Five Meme

1. How much money is in your wallet right now?
$35 CDN, not sure how much in US dollars (not much, though)

2. How much money would you need in the bank to feel secure? Rich?
$25k to feel secure; $1m to feel rich

3. If someone gave you $100, no strings attached, what would you do with it?
Put it towards expenses.

4. If someone gave you $1 Million, no strings attached, what would you do with it?
Pay off all my bills and my home loan. Maybe get some plastic surgery or go to a weight loss spa.

5. How much does something have to cost before it starts counting as "real" money, as a purchase to be considered and evaluated, but below which you'll buy without really thinking about it?
It depends upon the item. I wouldn't blink before spending up to $29 on a pair of pants or a blazer, but the number goes way down for items like undergarments and food. I get edgy about spending $30 on a meal for one, but I wouldn't think twice about spending it on the right piece of hardware.
