What would you do if you won the lottery?Oh lord. I would..... pay off my debt. I don't have much, but it's always there. I would pay off Jack's motorcycle and car, and put a lot away for us to pay rent at a better place. I would help out my family and friends in areas where I know it's needed, and then find a trusted financial manager and attorney. Well, the financial manager/attorney part would probably come first. Too many details! (I do know I want a 27" iMac too!)
For a long time I just spent spent spent money. I would buy things at stores I went to because if I walked through the door, I needed to walk away with something. Now I struggle to get things, even if I like them. To be honest, this is a really great change for me! One of my new years resolutions talks about my struggle with shopping, and I believe those are going up tomorrow.
I've started to try to fill my life with things that make me happy that cost less. Photography is a big one- getting a good picture, processing, printing and archiving my own photos brings me a lot of pride, and costs very little past the initial investments. I have also started personal journaling, which keeps me busy and gives me a sense of fulfillment (a full page is better than a full shopping bag!) that I don't find very often. I hadn't really thought about that before I started writing this post!

Journal Jar Series
In an earlier post, I talked about creating my own journal jar. As I add prompts, and complete others in my personal journal I will be sharing some responses here. Please feel free to add your own responses to the questions, or borrow for your own post!
