  • Buy a hundred acres and build a house for each of my family members with enough space between us to feel like we all have our own space with a "activity center" in the middle of the property for all of our bbqs and get togethers. Pay off our bills and buy a new car.

  • pay off my bills , buy a house, buy a new car, get married, go back to school, hire a housekeeper and a nanny (for while i'm at school), send my b/f to school, pay off his car loan, start a college fund for my kid, give a good portion to children's hospital for cancer research, put the rest in savings for when im retired so i can have a live in nurse and never be in a nursing home

  • Alot more then what I am doing now! LOL
    Pay off some bills,pay off my house,pay off both my parents house and my In-laws house and all their bills. Put money away for my childs future, buy another home in Florida for vacations, and give some money to the poor and to my religion. I can go on and on, but I would also try to save as much of it as possible..I guess it would depend on how much I won!

  • Pay off debt, buy a house, a new car. I would also put alot aside for college. My parents love there house- so I would get them a lifetime membership to a lawn care/landscaping company so they would never have to mow the lawn, rake, etc again.

  • Yeah I'd probably hire a part time nanny and housekeeper too and put an elevator in my house so that way when I get old I can go upstairs.

  • I would dissappear and take cruise after cruise for a month and just think about what to do next. build a home on nice land, remodel my parents and grandmothers house, pay off my truck, get the car i want, save some for kids and me later, hire a cook and fitness trainer for one year, shop until i dropped, donate to church and community organizations, pay off debts, start my own business and live happily ever after and somehow have the wedding of my dreams.

  • First I would look into good investments so that my money worked for me and not the other way around. Then if I am smart enough I could just live off of the interest alone. I would give to charity of some sort and take care of family and friends. I would by a farm or ranch somewhere and die happy.
