I would put it into the bank, and I wouldn't touch the actual $1 million dollars. I would just live comfortably off the interest it earned me every month. $1 million would earn enough interest each month for me to live very well. I would never have to work again, and I could afford to do most anything I wanted to do in life, without ever having to worry about paying my bills.

How I wish I have that amount right now. I badly needed it. I really do! Ha!Ha!Ha! With 1 million... ... 10% goes to a church. Hmmm... it's called tithe. ... I will wipe out all my debts. That will make me 10% less richer but 100% happier. ... Then I will start a labor-intensive small business that can generate decent income for me and for my workers. This way, I can help others to weather this global financial crisis. ... Next, I will threat my family to a simple gathering so we can enjoy each others company once more. Then I will give them gifts or cash afterward to help them do things that they have been longing to do. ... Of course, I will also allot for my friends who have been there with me in times of "famine". ... Last, I will travel around our country (Philippines) as far as 100,000 goes. That's how far my 1,000,000 goes. Can someone donate the amount now? LOL!

Same with you I would like to travel too but I would make that money grow. First I will deposit it to the bank and then think of a way or business to make it grow. In today's economy one million is so small if I want to travel to the places that I wish. My long times wish was to travel to the "first" known "7 wonders of the world. I was able to accomplish one. I already visited "the great wall" ... next on my list is "taj mahal" ... the others not yet. Take care and happy mylotting =)

Probably put most in the bank, although I'd like to travel too. Maybe I'd spend a little to buy things for myself and loved ones, but the only safe place it can be is in the bank for me, I'd be too scared I'd spend it all!

yeah.. thanks for the response.. will probably do that too. nowadays, a million is just a small amount.. you must plan carefully what to do with it.

If I had a million dollars I would put it in the bank and save it, I wouldn't touch it unless I absolutely needed to.

If I had one million I would clear of all my debts then whatever was left I'd put half into gold or another resource that won't make all my money worthless should the value of the USD take a nose dive. The economy is in a vary scary place and with the government printing money to pay bills a million might not be worth so very much in the near future.
