What would you do if you were given one million dollars today? Be it powerball, inheritance, or just a crazy nice stranger on the street, what would you do with it?

I would buy a new car, pay for my college education, and pay for infertility treatments. If the treatments failed I would adopt a child. I would also make a large donation to my favorite charities, Susan G. Coleman Foundation, The Ronald McDonald House, and the Shriners.

I would use it wisely. For one million dollars is not that much in GBP for anything in my head to do about the money. (silly me) One thing for sure, I would definetely pay the tinth for this one million dollar first before I use it for other things. It would be the one of the best day in my life knowing there is a million dollar free given to me. Ah, what a dream one can always only dream.

I would pay off my house, put some away for my children's education, make sure my husbands and my parents wouldn't have to worry about money. If you really think about a million dollars is not a whole lot of money nowadays. I'd be torn because it would not be enough to help my whole family out. But I would probably take a chunk and take us all on a family vacation to DisneyLand, and put some in bonds for my nieces and nephews.

i would pay off my mortgage, pay my mum and dads mortgage, buy a few houses to rent out so i can earn a living off them. If i had enough left over i'd take a nice holiday, somewhere abroad where its nice hot and sunny or get a new car!!!

Invest it, or at least most of it One million dollars these days isn't really a life changing amount of money. I would invest it, so that I get to keep the capital and then do things with the interest like go on trips and so on. It might take a bit longer to do all of those things that people do like trips, new cars etc, but it is defintely worth it to still have the money and have it making more money for you.
