What would you do with all that money? 

My List:

Pay off all of our debts (mortgage, student loans, car loans, credit cards etc.)

Pay off all of our parents debts.

Buy small homes for a few of our less fortunate friends and family.

Pay off our siblings debts.

Invest into accounts for our children (college, future homes, weddings etc.)

Buy a small vacation property.

Get a better car.

Start doing charity work of some kind. I'm thinking some kind of animal rescue.

Travel.


DH and I decided we would live comfortably, but not super extravagantly. We don't need a private jet, multiple homes, mansions, hired help etc. We would just love to be secure and to know that our children and our families were secure.

1. No one would ever know.

2. We'd get a house somewhat larger than the one we live in now, in a neighborhood close to my extended family. 

3. I'd buy two more vintage SUVs, Toyota Land Cruisers from the 80s, like my little gem and ship them al back to the US to refurbish.

4. We'd donate to programs to spay and neuter pets both in the US and here in CR.

5. We'd take off for a couple of months of visiting friends and family in Europe, before coming back ti the US.

6. We'd travel often.

7. Did I mention making certain no one wood ever know?

I think it would be hard to keep it a secret. I think it is usually on the news.

I have thought about that too. I would want to keep it discreet because I know A LOT of people would come around because they wanted something.

You can actually remain anonymous in some states. You have a lawyer accept the win on behalf of an trust.

Oh and we'd definitely donate to certain public services here where we live, and the three main animal shelters that are no-kill.
