Karen Harger may be $1.000.000 richer thanks to Powerball, but that won’t change her shopping habits. This Glenwood resident said she doesn’t even plan to stop using coupons, despite the fact she now has an enormous fortune at her disposal. You could snatch even more money in the next Powerball draw – a spectacular $384.000.000 jackpot is up for grabs!
Ms. Harger matched the five main numbers in the Powerball draw on November 4th, but it took her almost two months to come forward because she doesn’t regularly check her lottery tickets. After she finally decided to do it, the retired carer thought she became $1.000 richer and asked her husband Jim to confirm it. It didn’t take him long to realize the prize was much larger than that.
“I had a little time to look at this thing. I walked in there and I said, ‘No, Karen, there are a little bit too many zeroes to just be $1.000.’ And then I was nervous! Then we thought, ‘This can’t be true, this can’t happen to us!’” said Mr. Harger.
The fortunate couple plans to use the money to remodel their home, establish college funds for their grandchildren and save the rest for their retirement. Despite the fact she became $1.000.000 richer, Ms. Harger won’t let this victory go to her head – she even intends to keep using coupons to get discounts.
“I don’t plan to stop using coupons. I’ve done it all of my adult life. And we talked about that – this is not changing what we do. It just makes things a little easier,” explained the lucky grandmother of four after collecting her windfall at the Iowa Lottery’s regional office in Council Bluffs.
