50 Million...?

What would you do if you won the lottery tomorrow? Would you take the lump sum(say 50 million) or get it payed out over time?
What would you go out and buy/do?
We would-
-Give our tithe to God (a 10th of the money)
-Pay off all our bills- DUH
-Take the kids to disney world
-Build our dream home
- Give our family some $
-Invest some
- Probly blow some of it on un-needed stuff.

How about you?

  • I would hire a financial adviser and invest some of it. All debt within my family would be paid off, I would make sure they were all in decent homes with decent cars (although nothing extravagant, they still would have a home/car that they would OWN..) I would put away money for my boys and nieces schooling. Then go from there.. I tend to make my pennies stretch now, and I doubt no matter how much money would be thrown at me, that would change. Im not cheap, but im no big spender... no matter how much money I have in my pockets. I would definitely find a way to make that money last a very very very long time.

  • Pay off all our bills, car payments, mortgage.
    Put a chunk into college savings accounts.
    Renovate the basement and backyard (including a hot tub!)
    Pick up a new BMW for DH. In Germany. Then spin through the Nurburgring for a test drive.
    Spend a season in Tuscany.
    And one in Spain.
    And one in Norway.
    And one in Greece.

    We actually talked about this recently and decided that we probably wouldn't move. You couldn't find better neighbors and we LOVE our school district. We'd just...spruce things up.
