Meager Income

Pay Off Debt, Retire Comfortably on Meager Income, Win the Lottery, Not Necessarily in that Order

I won $500!

I’m still trying to win the Lottery.  In my monthly budget, I allocate some money to be spent on the Lottery.  Up until recently, I was just buying quick picks.  I typically buy Super Lotto and Mega tickets because the jackpot is going to be at least several million dollars.  I’ll also buy Fantasy 5 and Daily Derby tickets when I see the jackpot rolls over multiple times.  Although I’d like to win a multimillion dollar jackpot, I’d also be content to win just enough to be debt free.  The California Lottery offers several Scratchers whose grand prize I wouldn’t mind winning.

For instance, on a recent trip to the grocery store, I decided to buy the $5 ticket below which has a $250k grand prize.  It is the best $5 I’ve ever spent.  

It wasn’t the grand prize, however, I’m very pleased with the result.
