Beyond the Books: If I had a $1,000…

Posted August 27, 2015 by Kathy in Discussion / 4 Comments

Beyond the Books is a weekly meme hosted by which gives bloggers topics (mostly non-bookish) to discuss about. This is a fun way of learning more about each other. Check out her blog for the schedule of topics.

This week’s topic is:

If I had $1,000 I would buy…

This week is another fun topic! I’ve always said “if I ever won the lottery I would quit my job, buy a house, travel, etc.” So I can easily “spend” a $1,000 for this week’s answer:

I would buy a new TV for our bedroom. The TV we currently have is 10 years old, so it’s not a fancy high-tech flat screens that they sell now. When we turn on this TV we see the image for a couple of minutes and then it starts to darken until it is pitch black (as if you turned off the TV). But we can still hear the sound!! This just recently started happening but I definitely need to get a new one when the Fall TV shows start up again, which will be the middle of September. Because of the size of our cabinet we can’t get a big screen TV, so the ones I’ve been looking at are around $300.

I would also buy a PlayStation 4 for the family. We already have an Xbox 360 & Xbox One but there are games that are exclusively for the PlayStation that we would love to play. This costs around $400 (if bought as a bundle).

With the remaining $300 I would go on a shopping spree for me! With my job promotion I need to dress professionally, at least business casual. This is a big change for me because I was used to wearing jeans, T-shirts and gym clothes to work. So I need to buy some work clothes.

Now it is your turn. What would you do with a $1,000?

FYI – last week’s topic was about our favorite games. After visiting everyone’s post I took a break from reading and played Candy Crush.  Now I can’t stop!! So I’m curious what will tempt me this week from everyone’s posts!!

      Thanks Karen! I miss the comfort of jeans and sweats but it does feel good to dress up.

  1. If I had $1,000 I would buy some Pop Funko characters, a dog, some books and games xD if I could get all that with that amount of money O.o Somethings are quite expensive :O
    If you get a PS4 I hope you like it ^^ my family has one because we really wanted Final Fantasy XV but it still has yet to come out…
    But there are definitely some Xbox One exclusives I’d love but I have too many game systems T.T ah well..

      I love Pop Funko but I hold back since I don’t have a lot of space for them. I’ve always wanted to play Final Fantasy and there is another RPG my kids want. It would be nice to have multiple game systems lol.
