  • Depends, how much did I win? if it was just a million or so, yeah I'd have to, but I'd have a house of my own and be debt-free with some savings in the old Emergency Fund. Now, if I won 40-50 million? I'm gone! Look me up on some sunny beach somewhere!

  • I'd still work. I love working and being productive outside the house.
    I'd use it in this order: 1. Pay off house 2. Take month long trip to Australia 3. Put some aside for Step Son's future 4. Design and build a new house with a big arse kitchen

  • Even if I won a billion dollars I would have to do something. Start my own business? Start some charity organizations? Something.

  • I would do all of the things I do now - take care of the house, raise our children, home-school and run some websites on the side and do web design. Hubby and I have talked about the "what ifs" before and he would still work, but he would want to go back to a regular factory job. He works in the IT department now and he does the high stress job to support us, not because he enjoys it.

  • I'm retired. I'd make sure all my bills were PIF. I'd help my DD with her bills, put $ in college funds for the Gr-Kids. Go to Scotland to see where my Mother was born. Put some away so we would not waste it and live off interest. Give to the Heart Fund for my Husband, The Lung Assoc. for Me and Cancer Resh. for my Daughter. I'd esp make sure my deceased DD son is taken care of for the rest of his life. Then I'd pray to GOD I'm around a few yrs to spend some, I'm driving a 15 yr old Subaru, I'd work on that too.
