The vehicle! I love having a small, cozy living space and a big ol mansion doesn’t do it for me. I prefer smaller diamonds, too, so that’s a no-go. But the car… Oh, the car… I would have a sleek shiny little supercar for every day of the week….

That said, if we’re just talking living space, I’d dump the cars in a second for a beautiful plot of beach and a little Spanish mission style home. With housekeepers because I’m lazy.

I know this isn’t on the list/poll, but I would rather travel the world than have any of those items. I like the experiences than the material goods. Sorry for deflecting off your thread.

I’m tempted to say house but I think I’d go with the diamond! 

Fiance and I aren’t into big houses or ornate decorating. I’d say house if we were talking about location- like a waterfront bungalow in Buzios, Brazil or something. Otherwise, I’ll take the Taylor-Burton diamond!

Does this large house come with a maid? I don’t want to spend all my time cleaning a super huge house and everything that comes with it.  I’d require a maid and a pool boy..and a Gardner. ..so I can enjoy my house and not spend my life tending too it. 


Honestly…I’d prefer an average house..but with awesome land.

I would love a beautiful house in a great location. However, I wouldn’t necessarily want it to be “big” — a spare bedroom and ample recreation space is all I need. No mansion for me!

I’d take the house.  I feel that my ring is extravagent as is, and as much as I like high-end cars, it doesn’t appreciate like property.  

Although if the house is too big for my liking, I’d sell it for a more average sized home and use the extra money leftover for a car. 😉

JenGirl:  I’m with you on life long maid service and utilities!   We have trouble keeping our current house as clean as I would like it.  When we have a good pay raise, maid service is a luxury item on the list to discuss after we have a savings built up that was adjusted for the addtional money.  

I’m about 60% big house, 40% car.  I love my e-ring and wouldn’t want anything bigger than my .50 stone.

I’d want the House.  Darling Husband would want the car.

Can I trade the fancy house for just a regular house that will clean itself and cook for me?

I don’t like big houses or the suburbs they typically exist in, I would take a big fancy loft in a nice area of my city though!

House! I’m so envious of people with big, beautiful houses.

A huge house filled with staff to do all the work it requires, haha.
