It wasn’t easy getting stuck at home, talking to yourself (or plant or wall), and not being able to go out with friends and breathe some fresh air. Finally, after fifteen months of restrictions and face masks– we finally see the light through this pandemic.
Taste of Edmonton’s 50/50 raffle is about to make someone up to $50,000 richer. All you have to do is buy tickets here and cross your fingers you win the jackpot.
Most of us don’t have that amount of cash stashed away, but what if you could have? What would you do with $50k after a pandemic? Here are a few ideas:
- Invest in YOU
Invest it for your future by saving your prize money in retirement funds or the stock market. Give it time, buy more stocks and watch your portfolio grow. Another investment is on yourself- go back to school or get special classes, learn awesome new skills and build your empire up.One way or another, you multiply your $$$.
- Pay Off Your Debts
Kiss your personal debts and loans goodbye when you pay them off. This way, you’ll be able to enjoy spending all your money without interests haunting you at the back of your mind.
- Say YES to New Adventures
Book that ticket, grab your passport and pack your bags.It’s time to cross out those travel destinations off of your bucket list. Get that first-class flight and go on a trip you will never forget! Go extra boujie and get someone to take photos of you on your trip for that perfect #travelgoals insta-pic
- Start Your Passion Project
Ignite that fire inside you; start that photo blog, make your vlog series, or open your mini jewelry shop. No more restrictions, no limits. Now that you have the funds, do what makes you truly happy and fulfill your dreams to the fullest. Remember that opportunities always happen when you’re most passionate about ‘em!
- Buy a Pet
You can’t buy happiness, but you can get a furry (or not so furry) best friend. Get yourself a loyal friend and buy cute clothes and shoes that will match your outfits too! Don’t forget to get an adorable tag as well. Just imagine you and your new BFF walking fancy into a farmer’s market—now that is cute!
- Eat and Drink ’til Your Heart’s content
Now is the time to book a reservation at that 5-star restaurant you’ve always dreamed of. Take your S.O (significant other) on a night the both of you will remember because you spent $1k on dinner! But if you don’t have any idea where to eat, though, try our food and drink partners at Taste! They are *Chef’s kiss*
- Support Local Charities
If you do win the $50k from Taste of Edmonton’s 50/50, you definitely helped a lot already to local charities. But of course, we won’t stop you from sharing the love. Pick a charity close to your heart and share what you just received-this will definitely be another fulfilling experience.
- Attend a ConcertBook that VIP ticket concert of your favourite artist and go bangers on your favourite songs with your friends singing along. The best part- meet your fave artist and try not to go super fangirl/fanboy on them.
- Purchase a New Wardrobe
It’s not too bad to splurge on yourself a little bit. Now that you can go out more looking good and feeling good, wearing new outfits will definitely give you a boost of confidence.
- Get Annual Massage Therapy Sessions
Life can get busy – there are jobs to do, friends to see, food to cook. And who has time for that? No one. This is why you should get a set of massages you can book any time of the year so you can destress anytime (shake that pandemic anxiety off of you!).Now that you got the ideas it’s time to win that $50K!
