Powerball jackpot: What would you buy?

The Powerball jackpot is up to $500 million for tonight’s drawing.

No matter whether you buy a ticket or not, everybody that hears that just stops and wonders: what would I do with that kind of money?

Here at the Daily Item, there’s an office pool and we’re dreaming big!

Here’s my list:

  • Pay off my student loans, plus my older sister’s and my boyfriend’s.
  • Buy a car that is less than 10 years old. I’ve never had one of those.
  • Start a college fund for my younger sister.
  • Buy a 3-D television
  • Splurge on something. I don’t know what yet, but then again, I’ve never been able to walk into a store and buy everything.

It’s a list of things I dream of being able to afford, but likely never will.

What would you do if you hit the jackpot? What would you buy?
