 Hypothetical question, everyone is free to answer this- If you won the lottery, we'll say the jackpot was 15 million. What would you do with the money?

 I'd buy a place on a river w/ a pool and 2 really nice cars, a lot land, some 4 wheelers and horses....probably in Tennessee.

 I'd invest in a few resturants to keep the cash flow, possibly in the stock market.

I'd put away $100,000 each for my kids college funds.

Buy my close family each a home.

I'd probably still work, and defintely donate to breast cancer awareness, which is the charity I support the most. I would also give some to St. Jude's.

 

What would you do?

I'd pay off my student loans, and with the money left over, maybe I'd get something off the dollar menu at Taco Bell.

Pay off alllll debt. Which isn't much, but IMO no debt is good debt. Donate to the Humane Society and my church. Move my house onto a secluded piece of land. Fence in the entire thing. Maybe buy a new car. Maybe.

And hide the rest away. I wouldn't tell anyone about it either, lol. Not trying to be greedy. But I'd want that money to go to my kids, and the rest to the Humane Society and my church. Too many people are too comfortable asking for money from people with a lot of it, lol.

I'd live in the same lifestyle I do now. Frugal and cheap. I'm happy with my house. So, hopefully by the time I die, much of it won't have been used. I can have some of it put into several trust funds that my kids get at different intervals in their lives, and the rest will be for the grandkids in the same manner. :)

I'd pay off all my debt, buy the house we're renting, buy a new car, put enough money away for college for my girls and me, donate a ton to help find a cure for anencephaly, and put the rest in savings. I may buy a few new clothes also.
