One of the first things I would make sure is that I have my son's education paid for. I don't want anything stopping him from getting a good education. Paying off the bills like credit cards, car loans etc. Next I would get all the things we NEED right now. Mostly maintenance type stuff like painting, furniture etc. I would probably quit my part-time job and work more on my jewelry, my husband would keep working, he is one of the lucky people who loves what he does for a living. And after all that there would still be more than plenty to live on, travel and retire. I would make sure I am earning interest on that money as well. I know the interest rates are not that high right now but it is still some earnings.

I would go for a luxurious house and a car first. And then I would buy all the things I want for ma house. I mean all the branded and best products. And also I would spend some cash on charity like say providing three meals for a day from my money to orphanages and contribute donation. and If I was left with any after all ma expenses, I would deposit the rest in the bank...

Well, I've got massive student loan debt, so I'd get that cleared first and foremost. Having said that, I'd probably help out my family with their debts and mortgages next, then my friends. I'd send my parents on vacation to wherever they want to go, and probably go on a cruise with my boyfriend. The rest I'd invest or put into savings.
