If you won the lottery jackpot, what would be your first purchase?

Let's pretend you won the lottery jackpot, and you've already paid off your debts (if you have any). If you won like $24 million dollars, what would be the first thing you bought?

  • If all my debts are paid (like house, car, student loans, credit cards, etc.)...
    I'd quit my job and pay up front to finish grad school. That way I wouldn't have to juggle bills, a full time job, school, and being a mommy. THEN I would buy a bunch of fun stuff!
