If you won the 500 million dollar power ball...........

Posted by   + Show Post

What would you do?

We would pay off all our medical and school debt (the only debt we have).

Get much needed upgrades in our vehicles (we owe nothing on our cars).

Actually BUY a house instead of rent and basically invest and live like we do now.

We'd help out some friends and family. Unknown to them, adopt a family or two to bestow some money on they did not know where came from.

Give to our church and favorite charities.

I would want a real bed room set instead of the mismatch stuff we have now but really would not go hog wild with the money.


Wish someone like us could win, who really, really needs it.

I'd buy a house, a new car, and set up a trust fund for my soon to be son. A new car for my DF. Have the wedding of my dreams. Vacation around the world. Set my family up with money so they'd be set for life. Adopt a couple children. Pay off my debts. Buy DF's mother her own home. Give to multiple charities and start one of my own. That's all I can think of for now.

Id pay off all of my families bills and buy reasonable sized houses for myself and my immediate family. Then id buy reasonable vehicles for myself and my immediate family. Id buy a few rental properties and rent them to lower income families for cheap with the option to buy. Id pay off christmas lay aways and buy random families groceries. idk id love to have the ability to help others.

If I won $500 million I would track down all the folks who helped me with what they could when I was homeless and repay them , set my mother up with a retirement account and her own place, set up a trust fund for my son payable upon is 30th birthday, fund my wildest dream of opening a school that well educate all regardless of ability to pay or special needs as well as adults in Ghana ,West Africa, of course pay off all my debt, by a new car. Lastly by out the cleaning company that myself a several others busted our asses at for 5 yrs effectivly fireing  our old boss.( this man cost at least 30 people there jobs). Mean I know but he have more than enough to start over with.

Ok no I would pay off my debts, put aside a trust, get my kiddo back (that would be FIRST), buy a new (to me) car, buy a house and buy out the apartment complex i live in and either burn it to the ground or hire new people and run it RIGHT.
