I would pay off the car, the house & c/c debt. I would hide the fact we won & wouldn’t tell anyone except parents. Darling Husband would still work at his job (he loves it there) & I would change from full time to part time. I wouldn’t want to not work, I’d get so bored! Take a vacation & go to the dentist. We’d pay off our parent’s houses & maybe for a few close friends. But we’d live off the money we made at work. I read a story where a lot of people who win the lotto end up bankrupt because of the change of lifestyle.

We don’t have a ticket, but now I kinda want to just buy 1 :). When is the drawing for the millions?

I bought 6, and I never play the lottery. But thought, what the heck?

I honestly hope one person does not win, I hope there are several. No one person needs that much money….

If I won, I would pay off all the bills of all my immediate family and close friends, pay off our house. I’d probably buy a house in Cali, and FL, both on the beach. Nothing extravagant, but we both love the beach. I love FL and FI’s brother lives in CA so we’d have a place to stay and visit him. I’d travel the world, probably for a year or so, see everything I’ve always wanted to see.

Then I’d settle down and buy a ton of land, fence it in,  and set up a no kill animal shelter that allowed the animals to run around and play rather than being stuck in cages all day.

Oh, and our wedding would be the party of the year! haha

I don’t think I’d do anything crazy, I’m pretty ridiculously frugal so I know I wouldn’t blow it all. I’d just enjoy living life and not stressing over money anymore!

I would quit my job in a heartbeat. Why would anyone continue to work if they have hundreds of millions of dollars sitting in the bank?

Beyond that, we’d buy our dream house that’s currently on the market for $1.6m, buy an ocean front house in Bermuda, pay off all of our families and friends debts, supply our nearest and dearest with enough money so that they never have to work again, travel around the world, invest a shitload of it, buy a few businesses that interest us, donate to numerous charities, open an animal shelter, donate money to my old high school to save the arts department that’s been on the chopping block for years and buy anything and everything that we could ever want. God, I hope we win! Lol
