Oh how lucky are those who won millions of cash in lotteries, contests, games, etc. I wish i'm one of them and if i have the money the first thing i'll do is give 20% to my mom then 10% to my parents in law. 30% will go to investments on business so that the money will still grow. I'll buy a house and lot and 2 cars. We'll go on vacation and travel in other countries. I'll buy what i want and eat all i can. And the rest will be savings. *Sigh* Daydreaming again.

First thing I would do would be cancel the loans that I am planning on taking out in September to cover going to University. Then I would buy my own car and practice driving so I can pass my test quicker. I would then buy myself a house rather than a little student flat for when I am at Uni. Most of the money I would probably keep rather than spending it all at once, but I would probably buy a lot of shoes and clothes etc.

I would pay off all my debts, large and small. Buy a new eco friendly car. Buy a new house. And research like crazy to find the best investment techniques! Then I'll think about hobbies and vacations!

When we got such money, we definitely don't want to lose it instead we will make it grow.

I would spend it! LOL I know that's the simple answer though. If I had buckets of money, I would definitely help out my family, pay all the bills off, get everyone a car and a house, maybe a nice vacation. Then there's tons of other stuff to buy, books, DVD's, electronics, games, oh, the fun I could have with millions of dollars! I like your idea of investment, I would do that too.

I think I would frist of all pay off all my debts and also give money to my loved one, buy a house and a car that wont break down on me. I would also go on vacations when my kids were off school to new and exotic places all the time. I would put some money on the side and another part to invest in something. There is so mutch things we might do with millions but the sad part is that I could only dream.

I would first make sure any and all debts i had were paid off, including the debts to anyone in my family. I am in college right now majoring in web design and i must say i would probably continue going to school and would still have a career. The the money available I would probably invest in and create my own company, that way i could grow on my money. i am a charitable person so i would probably give to charity and probably make my own charitable organization. so to say the least i would not only benefit myself but i would benefit others with my good fortune.

first on my list is to pay all of my debts, i dont have that many debts though. i'll pay our house in full, buy a van, start my own restaurant. have some enough cash for my 3 kids saved in their own name in a reputable bank here. go to this hospital where i had once a surgery and sponsor one of those people there that are waiting in the hallway for their relatives to undergo surgery because they dont have money. if there are some left i'd buy my mom and bro a house, and if there's more i'd buy my 2 sis a house too, if there's some more left i'd buy my mom a tricycle so she can have some means of daily income, plus a small grocery store for my other sis. if there's more left, i have friends and relatives that needs help, i'd give them some. if there's more left, id go to elsie's gatches village and give some there. i'll go donate some to home for the aged too, and another donation to the mental institution here in another town close to our town. and finally... if i still have many more money left, i'd go on travel, cruise or do whatever i want to do with it.

I wish I was lucky enough to win millions of dollar. If I won, first I would pass out! I would give 10% in tithes to my church, then I would pay off my debts, buy a house, buy a space to sell my crafts, give my parents and siblings some. Open up a big trust fund for my daughter and I would put the rest of it in the bank.

I'm a firm believer of what goes around comes around. There are so many people that I love that would benefit if I every came into some big money. Of course, I'd do the smart thing like get a house and a good running car. After that, I'd be spoiling all my loved ones. My children and I would also do alot of traveling. We live in a big beautiful country and I wish I could show my children all of it. After that I'd worry about showing them the rest of the world. I'd like to set up an investment or some sort of account where my living expenses would be paid into my regular account every month and the rest would collect interest in a different account. I'm not sure if that makes sense the way I wrote it but I know what I mean.. LOL. When I turned 19, I came into 22 thousand dollars - and I blew the whole thing. I'm much older and hopefully smarter know and if the same thing happened, I'd definatly come out better off than the last time.

I would be investing all of it and living off the interest. I would then pack up everything I own and put it in a storage unit. Then go to the airport and take the first flight to Europe. Doesn't matter where, anywhere is fine. Buy a packpack, some clothes and other gear, and start packing around Europe. Eventually I'll make my way around the world and back home. I haven't decided what I'd do after that.

The first thing that comes to my mind when I saw your question is donation for the needy people around the world who are suffering from all kinds of hardships. I do make donations to organizations like American Red Cross which is doing an excellent job helping needy people.
