Man i cannot even begin to imagine being this rich!! But I would definitely pay all my bills and then invest the rest...It's scary to think of it because as they say "mo money mo problems" but it would be nice not to stress about bills for once. I am by no means and extravagant spender or high maintenance in the least and I always wonder what money would do to my life...

I'd bank it and live off the interest. I'd maybe let a little build up, so I could buy things that were a little fancier, but I dont think I'd go mad. Maybe a nice holiday, buy another house, and rent this one out. I have seen the effects that frivolous spending can have, and because its so addictive, you can end up blowing it all and then not being able to stop buying things.

I will definitely purchase the house and lot I've been eyeing for several weeks now near my in-laws location. My husband would definitely love it. I will also buy a car, invest some portions of the money and give some to charity. I will also book a flight and a five star hotel in Paris for me and my family.

Of course one million dollars is a huge amount for me and I want to start my company from this money. First of all I want to invest some money on my company because I need a business and I want to start an IT company. After that I want to buy some important and useful things like mobile phones and laptops. Because this is need have mine.

I will save half of the money in the bank and use another half for investment (e.g property, funds, bonds etc). Once I get the good returns from my investment, I'll donate some for charity and plan for my early retirement. Happy Mylotting!! Cheers

Im such a weirdo, okay id give most away or create a charity, i've always wanted to make a health center for the homeless. I knew ppl when i was little and it was always my dream. :) Or invest it make more money and do the health center. Probably that. Makes more sense because i would have to maintain it.

I want to travel the world, especially Europe with my family. I want to secure my children's future and my brothers and sisters future. Give them each with a beautiful and comfort home and cars. Then after that, I have to settle on a small, comfortable house full of love and caring and enjoy a cup of coffee every morning with my family.

Give me MO problems please... I would love to ponder these types of problems! I hate have to worry about where my next dollar is going to come from and i think i would also look for ways to invest the money so i could turn it into even more and hopefully i would be living large! It's a nice dream, this discussion has been my inspiration to buy another lottery ticket this week... you have to be in it to win it.

I would create an enterprise of meat replacement to be put on all stores in the world along side with real meat so people would have the choice to be Vegan and stop the murderers. Oh how much I would love to do that or that someone did that. They are mutilated, beaten, I just put my self in a cow, pig, chicken, fishes' place and I feel horrible. I just love animals a lot, lol. Happy my lotting!

I would keep $100,000 for my personal needs. With the rest, I would buy and fix up foreclosed properties and invite the previous owners to move back in and rent from me. I think homelessness is the worst thing that could happen to a person. I don't know how I would handle it if it happened to me.

A million is nice to have in the pocket and on the bank books, or investment books if possible,then you KNOW you'll never starve or worry about something if something hits the fan real bad. I was working for a person and they told me if they had a million dollars all their problems would be over. I said a million would do a lot, but with houses the way they cost, cars, cost of living, to me, you need more than a million. So...it is always better to have a couple million on the books, just IMHO. so..if I got the mill, I will be seeking the advice of someone who could help me to get a couple more millions, that is how I would ask and once they tell me, I would go about getting that. Then, once I got more, then I would spend but to me, I don't need a whole million to spend just a couple thousand and so.
