I don't know if this is already a big amount to you but this is already too much for me. I can pay my credit cards bills, pay my year long debts, buy a car, start a business. Whew! how I wish i could have one. How about you? What will you do if you have such amount?

I would use half of that amount for investments.From $500,000 ,half would go into Real estate and the other half into mutual funds and stock market with professional advice. Out of the remaining $500,000 I would put half into a Fixed deposit account for a lock-in period of 3 to 5 years ,that will earn high interest.I will put another $100,000 into an SB account for my parents to use. Of the remaining $150,000 I would use $100,000 for my and my close friends needs as they show up and will use the other $50,000 to float a Non governmental Organization that I and a group of my friends will manage.

i'll save most of it, u'll never know when u will need it badly. And i wouldn't spend too much of it because if you're too reliant on this $1 million , you'll probably start to be lazy to earn your own money. And one day sooner or later, you would have spent all of this $1 million dollar away :( And most probably, u couldn't keep up with your current standard of living. And then consequences..... :(

I would pay off all our debts, especially the house. I would send for the rest of my things from back home. Buy that new house that we plan to retire in. Send some money to my brother, sister-in-law to pay off her house, give some money to my hubby's parents. But a new computer and a hdtv. If anything is left, it would go into the bank.

With that kind of money we could rebuild out house and give to those charities that have helped us and put some money in accounts for college for the kids. Then hopefully enough to retire on left for a Roth IRA. That would get us back to square one and then we could earn the rest of our lives. Kind of the way it should be I think.

If I have such amount. Infact I will first seat down, think before deciding what to do with it. I will surely invest 60% of it. The 40% will be for my personal useage to ungrade mysef to a new status.

I would buy my Grandpas old house. Buy up as much land as I could in the area... Then set asided enough to live on for the rest of my life.. then I would pay my parents bills, My sisters bills, My friends and relatives bills, and I would found my own community, and my own small tribal nation, and create new jobs and our own little new society..... Maybe even form a foundation.. out of it.. I could do so many wonderful things with that money to make the world a better place, that would be my ultimate goal to do with it. - DNatureofDTrain
