What would be the very first thing you would do? Leave your job, move out of your old home? I think I would still work for a while, but I would so leave this apartment I am in and get a home for me and my family. what about you?

Clear all debt would be our first move then look to either settle here and buy a home or move back to NZ or wherever our family are. I'm sure my hubby would quit his job in an instant LOL

I would take my family on a nice vacation and pay off all of my bills. I would definitely move out my home and the county we live in for sure. I would take my family to a place where we could get some peace of mind and enjoyment.

We haven't been on vacation since 1998 right before moving into this house. We thought we would be very happy here but that sure isn't the case. I would love to get away for a while.

The first thing I would do is ask God to forgive me for gambling, then tithe to my church. I would then buy houses for me and my sisters. I would also buy them whatever else they needed. I would not feel right coming up, if they didn't also. Then, I would spend every penny it took for me to learn how to drive. I want a Mercedez-not sure which one yet. I want a whole new wardrobe and a laptop computer. And everything else my mind can come up with.

I would take care of my brother and sister, and maybe pass off a few bucks to a few other family members.

If I were to win the lottery the firdst thing I would do is have my hubby quit his job. We would then homeschool our kids together and travel a little bit. I'd pay off my parents mortgage, give each of my siblings a set amount of money, set up college funds for my kids.

If I won the lottery, I would first pay off my present bills, buy a house, a new vehicle,and invest a percentage of it and give 10% to my favorite charity, and help a bit with some special select friends and family. I would take vacations and trips to places i never have been to, but i would still work a bit just to stay busy.

yes investing is very important. as long as you do your research. it is important to create that nest egg for you and your family. and for you children and their family

Well it really depends on how much is the prize money. If it is really big then I guess I will try to start my own business, give some to charity, put some in the bank and go to Europe for a vacation =)

First thing I would probably do is faint lol, I would diffently give my 2 week notice and then I would ask my family how much they needed to get totally out of debt and help them get a new start, then I would spend and save the rest, also give to my favorite charity ( the native americans).Have a great day!

If I won the lottery, I would invest it into something then retire. Of course, this would only happen in fantasy land, but if anybody wins, make sure to share it with everybody :D

I would buy a giant parcel of land up North, have houses built for my Mom and three Brothers and us and move us all up there. My Dad lives up there and I'd like to get to see him more, I miss the water terribly and I can't go without my Mom and my family here. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

I would definitely leave my corporate position of 12 years. It would be crazy of most people to keep working (depending on how much you won) - but I would first be sure that I had a plan for the money first, well laid, thought out, detailed down to my LAST WILL IN TESTAMENT .. . THEN I WOULD QUIT!!!!
