  • Trade in our car and pay outright, buy a modest house that meets our needs without being more than is reasonable, update any furnishings that need to be replaced (like our couch) or that we need to get (like a headboard), maybe some things we'd just like, like a new tv or something, lol. Put the rest into savings because I'm sure we'll need it down the road. We wouldn't really change our lifestyle or anything, though. We'd continue to live pretty much the same as we do now. Maybe we'd spend a little more on groceries, lol, but we wouldn't be frivolous with it or anything. :)

  • Like someone else said it is not much these days, but if I had an extra million, I would share it with my family. I have no debts to pay off, or anything I don't already have...or want...
