  • Pay off debt, buy a house (not anything elaborate, just a modest but nice home), buy a mini-van, take a vacation, then put rest in savings.

  • I would lock half of it up.
    that leaves me with 500,000
    i'd donate 50,000 to things of interest (charities, research etc)
    Probably buy a house and the vehicle i really want
    furniture for the house.
    and would probably be gone after that (except what was locked up)

  • I would pay all of my debts, which are mortgage and student loans. The other 1/2 I would invest. A million dollars doesn't go that far....:(

  • Buy a house for us and my mom, get a new/different better car (ours sucks lol), start a college fund for my kids, pay to go back to school and give some to charity. Whatever was left I would put into a saving account to draw interest.

  • I would put the money in several high interest rated accounts and leave it alone for a year. After that I'd go to town with just the interest alone :)

  • You know what really sucks? A million dollars doesn't mean you can quit and relax like it use to. If you give your kids some money, pay off those debts, and put some in the bank, you have nothing to just live comfortably on as in the past. Now, don't get me wrong. I wouldn't turn it down just because you need multiple millions before you can sit back and relax. I would be very ecstatic to have the million. But, it isn't what it use to be.
