I would pay off all my bills, put College tuitions away for my children, nieces and nephew, buy my parents and sister and her husband nice homes and then I think I would most definitely help out various charities. I love animals and love helping people too. It's hard to see people work their butts off and not get anywhere in life...I have been there myself.

I would probably died of a heart attack, so someone would have to bury me. Then they could take care of the rest of my bills and have some left to send my kids to college.

I can think of a whole bunch of folks who need help right about now. A million wouldn't go very far, but it certainly will help.

as for me? I'd paid my whoppers off and buy my cat a new jar of cat nip.

Actually, my best friend and her husband won 32 million in the CA lottery back in May of 1998. They helped alot of family in need. Also, during alot of road trips with them, it was not uncommon to open the window of the coach they purchased and hand 20.00 bills out the window to strangers on street corners who were holding up signs that read "Will work for food". They purchased a couple of nice condos down in Cabo san Lucas, purchased some nice Mercedes and some nice Harleys, spent a small fortune on jewlery and fine wines, etc. She passed away in March at the age of 58 from heart disease. He is now very frugal with his money and is appreciating the more simple things in life. Having money does not always mean happiness. What is really important in life are the very things that maney cannot buy:-)

I would begin with my family. My son and daughter in law have two young children. I would pay off their house. My daughter and son in law live very conservatively. THey want to adopt and don't have the money to go overseas for adoption. I would pay for that for them, as they can't have children. My youngest is in College, so that would be taken care of for him. He has two years left.

Then I would move onto the veterans and do what I could to help them out. I would stock up the homeless veterans food bank. The Veterans Home on Monroe has accounts for special projects. I would help them out with one or two of those.

I can dream, can't I?

I would pay my house off.

Buy each of my kids a decent home.

Give a bunch to homeless or poor folks.

Give some to animal rescues.

Put some in the bank....no....bury some in the backyard (much safer these days.) lol

Maybe some for the Grand kids college.

The money is now GONE!!

1-Pay off my student loans.
2-Invest part.
3-Invest another part in Diabetes Research.
4-Move to either Colorado, New Mexico, the lake shore here in Mich, or the Yukon Territory in Canada.

I think this kind of question has been asked before. My answers always seem to vary depending...

Pay off some debt, put some into a college fund for the kids, and then take one heck of a vacation with my family and closest friends!

Pay bills, buy a house, buy a car that the WHOLE family can fit in (unlike what we have now where everyone is crammed in!), buy some NEW clothes, not second hand, put money away for college for my kids, go to college myself, the list goes on...

Pay off my bills.

Help my bro and his wife pay off some of their bills.

Sadly this isn't enough money to quit my job...but I'd take the family on vacation back to Mazatlan.

I would pay off my house in Wyoming and then just give it to someone that really needs and deserves it and I would get out of town and build on some property. I would buy a new truck and few other toys and I would donate to the animal shelters.
