  • Yea I probably think about this at least once a week to be honest LOL I'd probably pay off EVERYTHING, which isn't a whole lot when you have a million in your hands but as of right now its not possible. Once that is done, then probably look into buying a house so that we will no longer be renters.

  • DH and I have talked of this often.. We would not tell anyone about it. We would pay off any outstanding debt and continue to live our current lifestyle. DH is close to being able to retire so it would not raise suspicion when he no longer goes to work. Also, he gets laid off through out year so his being home also wouldn't be unusual. We would just enjoy our life like we currently do but would not have money issues.

  • Pay the taxes on the money first then pay off my Mortgage, My Cars, & all our debt. Then put about $200,000 into a college fund for my Son. Depending on what was left, I would give flat amounts to my Sisters and pay off any debt that my Parents had & my Inlaws. The balance would go into savings/investments/IRA's.

  • MOVE!

    After I had a place for just me and my kids with actual furniture that wasn't mismatched hand me downs.... then I'd pay off my bills, put money away for the kids for college, and live debt free!

  • I would buy a bigger vehicle, pay off all debt, then add on to the house (we could use another bed and bathroom), buy my DF the bed he's been wanting and put the rest in the bank to collect interest.
