Many of us think to ourselves, if I ever won the lottery, what would I buy?  Typically, the lottery means millions of dollars, so therefore your "what would I buy" list would be endless, right?  You are more likely to win $100, than $1,000,000, so how would you spend it?  Think about it.  Ok, it's a measley hundred bucks, but spends just as well.  Here are some ways you can spend $100.

1.  A dining experience - In a group, I can see $100 going very quickly, but let's just make it you and maybe a friend or spouse.  I can think of plenty of places where I can get a super awesome meal for $100.  Yes, right here in the Mohawk Valley.

2.  Traveling - Ok, it's not going to get you too far, but yes, driving to Old Forge, is considered traveling.  Go there, or go somewhere and simply be a tourist...even if it is a small town.

3.  Paying bills -  Boo, that's no fun.

4.  Gifts for other people - Here's a newsflash, you don't have to have a reason to buy gifts.  People appreciate them whether it's their birthday, Christmas, or not.

5.  New clothes - Yeah, get yourself some new duds.  Surprisingly, you can actually get quite a bit for $100, if you look in the right places.

6.  See a concert - Certainly not going to get you tickets to Rolling Stones, or Bruce Springsteen, but could certainly see someone local.

7.  Go on a date - go out with a significant other and enjoy a nice meal and maybe catch a movie or a play.  Plenty of places to do that right here in Central New York.

8.  Get a massage -  Ooooooh, I like that one.  Most people don't realize massages are actually quite reasonably priced.

9.  Pub crawl, bar hopping - $100 could keep your thirst quenched for quite awhile if you decide to hit some of the local watering holes.

10.  Get ya a basket of kittens.  Wait, what?

11.  Hire a house cleaning service - You can find them online - do a search on house cleaning, Utica NY.

12.  Play some golf - That's right, it's that time.  I don't see any snow.  The courses are open.  Hit the links.

These are just a few ideas.  What would you do with $100?
