If you won the lottery, what would you do?

I would buy my family a house paid off-not a mansion just a home, pay off my car, and take a vacation to disney with my family splurg a little.

Help save my neighborhood church and get some kind of kids activities going in the town-after school that is, help my family get rid of there bills, then some charities, abuse kids, abused animals, abused woman and men, set up something for city kids-where I was raised-Jersey City.

  • I would buy a home for myself and my family. I would also put money away for my kid's college (we have 4), I would buy 2 dependable new cars, I would also like to buy my mother a house. My husband jokes that if we won the lottery I would make us broke because I want to buy everyone close to us a house!

  • I'd pay off our home first, then I'd purchase about 4 or 5 more for rental properties. Pay off my student loans. Buy an RV & move to the beach. We wouldn't have to work because the rental properties would be our monthly income. Not to mention the money we'd have left from the lottery.

  • I would donate 10% to charities, then pay off my bills. We would put a lot of it into a savings account so that when we do get stationed back in Texas we could buy a house, my DH could buy himself a truck or motorcycle, since we've always bought the cars I wanted. I would be able to buy all the furniture and decorations I want for the house, then would take my famly on a fun trip. Also would pay for my mom to have a new house built for her and my dad because their house is in bad shape, and buy my mom a real mail car so she can quit having shoulder troubles.

  • Trust fund for the kids, which they could not touch till they graduate college, most would go into savings and then would buy a house with the intrest from the savings, not touch the principal ammount in savings. Maybe start my own business which would be a yarn store that people could come in a crochet or knit anytime.
