Sometime I probablystart to imagine somethings. So many things usually come to mind even when I'm online. So I throw the question to mylotters. What would you do if you won one million dollars right now?! I'll probably look for where to invest the money after taking some to ensure my family stays comfortable. What about you?

Wow! 1 million dollars is just so cool. I would have to save a good chunk, give some to my parents, choose as many associations to donate and go for a good travel. I'd want to stay grounded as possible and not to splurge unnecessary.

Other than paying bills, I would buy a new home where I could keep my cats out from beneath my feet, have a garden, and keep my bike handy for rides in the wind. Then I would have a big party and invite all my relatives and friends to help me celebrate with catered food. Then I would get my passport so I could go visit the home lands of my ancestors and buy a huge antique grand-father clock with a must-have beautiful melodic pendulum that gongs on the hour and half hour. If I had money left over after all these splurges, I would seek for the best place to donate some money and volunteer some time.

If I had won one million dollars, I would use it to build a house or mansion, and I would also put it in my bank for safekeeping and for future purposes. I would also buy a big van for transportation, buy cellphones, iPods, and other gadgets that I wish for, food from my favorite fast food restaurants, travel around the world, and visit many places. I would also share some to my family if they need it. I would give some to charity.

Nice vannice95, i think I love those fanciful things too. I really would love to build a house for myself and my family too and travel to all the good places that i wish to go to. Thanks for sharing...

Your idea sounds like a good one. If I know about business at all, I would probably do the same thing. However, I am still unsure if I would do any good if I venture in any kind of business. But anyway, if I won one million dollars, I would definitely pay our mortgage, the one that I'm paying off for our family, and make sure that my parents will grow old comfortably and with peace of mind (I'd probably send them out of town if they wish to travel and unwind), then I would buy my own house and lot, and car. I will drag my brother back to school and make sure that he graduates. I would bribe him, probably, with a car or whatever, if that's what it takes.

You sound more like a nigerian to me! oops. I would have sworn you were one. I really like your style but if I may ask what makes you so sure you won't successfully run a business of your own. I believe you can. All the best...

First of all I will keep it in the bank so as it is safe over there, then I will do everything I wish to do when I did not had money like taking my family to a holiday maybe in Egypt and then to build up a beautiful home too.

splendid, i guess. Thats what i'd rather do if I didn't have reasons for investing. I bet my family will give anything to be taken to such places

I'll probably make more money with it.And from time to time have some for charitable institutions that could uplift some lives in some little simple things.

Thats rather nice giving to charity though you didn't tell us how you hope to make more money with the money.

Exactly, I'll do the same, I will look for a stable business that I could franchise, then save some in the bank, then go shopping with my whole family and travel as well.
