I would tithe, give to family and friends, give to charity, pay of my car and college loans, and SAVE the rest! I might invest a little here and there too, but I'm kind of a wimp when it comes to taking risks with my money ;)

I would buy a house for myself, my parents and my sister and also my husband's family. I would then try to start a clothing/shoe line for women who are petite (under 5'0 ft.) and with small feet. I would also donate some to a charity. The rest I would invest.

Yessssss! The world needs more petite stuff. I'm 5'3", but my mom and sister have trouble finding clothes that fit them right because they're REALLY short. They always have to hem pants, even wear children's shoes sometimes!

I would open a nice account for each of my children, build some things in our town for children and teens to do, and pay off bills, probably buy a new house in the country.

What would i do with a million, i would probably buy my own house and a nice car, treat all my family to a holiday and then some i would donate to charity of my choice and then finally the rest i would invest and put into a bank account and let the interest add up till it reached a million again.

The first thing I would do if I had a million dollars would be to pay off my bills, all of them. I would buy a home, pay cash for it. I would start my own business. Then I would employ my children so they would have secure employment with benefits.

Hey... employing your kids is a really good idea! That way you'd be spending the money in a way, but still keepin' it in the family... brilliant ;)

I would sit down (as soon as i could settle myself down a bit) with my husband, choose the adults only community that we liked best, call and buy the house we wanted, then change my phone number, so my cheap relatives couldn't call me, asking for money. The rest would go into Money Market accounts, stock market portfolio, and a high yield savings account.

Traveling sounds good :) Buying some memories is a good investment! It is hard to EARN a million dollars... but it's possible...

I would begin by giveing almost half to various charities I trust with no tax exemptions. Next I would pay off my house, and then buy my mom one. I would then self publish one of my other books, seeing as my contract with my current publisher is for 5 years. It cost nothing with her because she's a real publisher but still I have a lot more ideas for it...or maybe even go and use the money to push my current book to get out to more people.

OoOoOoOo... personal island... good idea!

a million pound! thats a lot of money! Well, firstly I'd go and buy a nice house, then 3 or 4 fast cars. I wouldn't quit work just in case I got bored, but I'd cut down to 2 days a week. I'd try to put a lot of it in a high interest bank account and live off the interest. I'd donate a little of the money to charity, and I'd keep some back to enjoy my life.

Sounds like you'd have a lot of fun with the money! I forgot to mention that I'd also buy my dream car... a 1957 Chevy Bel Air. Not exactly a "fast" car... but definitely a beautiful one!
