  • Save! Put anything you can save in cds so you can not get to them easily and it will steadily grow. Also save for retirement and put some money in mutual funds too. Make sure you have an emergency fund first. Do not go to a financial planner unless he/she is a fee only advisor. Many make their money on commissions when they sell you something but fee only advisors just charge an hourly fee. I listen to a radio show on Sunday mornings 9 AM to noon EST......WTKK. Google it and you can then listen online. Susan Kaplan is on most Sundays and she is one of the top 100 financial advisors in the US. Good luck!

  • Invest. Start educating yourself on stocks. Motley Fool, Wall Street Journal (read it for free at the library) are the places to start

  • I'd bury it in the ground and put lots of Miracle Grow in it! It has to do better than the stock market has ever done for us. At least when you dig it up you won't be missing $62,000.00!
