What would you do with your winnings?

Buy a house? how much do you think you'd spend on it?
Buy a new car? Which one?
Go on vacation? Where?

Give to charity? Which one and why

Invest it?

I'd buy a house.
Prolly spend close to a million on it ... because i could.

I'd buy my oldest a car and buy her a condo too.
I'd offer my evil sisters 1/2 a million each, BUT
they would have to go to couseling for their lifetime to get it.
haha they would have to write a million times I'm sorry to me.
i'd give them a $1 for each I'm sorry.

sorry, in a mood today.

Here's what I'd like to do -
buy an apartment building. 30 plus units.
these would be for working families.
there would be a childcare on the grounds.
free to the residents.

1/2 of what these families pay for rent would go into an account for them.
they can use that to purchase their own home.
the other 1/2 would be for upkeep & maintance on the units.

I'd adopt the elementry school I went to.
I'd purchase new shoes & uniforms for all students.
replace all playground equipment, buy computers .. everything they need.

and ... the day before winter break
I'd have a snowmaker thing come to the school and cover the school w/ snow !
we live in So CAl, its never snowed at that school.

I could say all these things I'd do with it. But I really don't know what I'd do with it until I had it in my hands to spend.

First of all, I would cancel my loan application and buy that house in ca$$$h!
I just changed cars, so maybe I would wait for that one. I also wouldn't go shopping seeing as I could only buy maternity clothes But I would save that money and in about a year I would be off to Disney World.
I think I would just buy the house and remodel it!

Oh boy...I would definitely buy a house somewhere warm. I'd buy myself a new car, preferably an SUV. I would put enough away to make sure both my children can get through college. And I would definitely save most of it.

What would you do with your winnings? Pay off all old debts, buy my step-dad a house and pay off his bills. Spoil my entire family

Buy a house? Of course, I rent now. how much do you think you'd spend on it? I'd probably have to spend about 3/4 of a mil, area where I live is very expensive and that would buy a really nice house

Buy a new car? Yes Which one? A truck for DH and a really nice SUV for me, even though I already have a nice Envoy

Go on vacation? Oh yeah! Where? The question is not where I would go but where I would NOT go.

Give to charity? yes Which one and why Cancer research, I lost my mom and 2 uncles to cancer.

Invest it? I'd have to hire someone for that but I would def want to invest.
