I would pay off my car, buy FI a new car, pay the rest of our wedding, and buy a house. The rest would sit in the bank and be used as needed. I would organise time off work for FI and I and go on a holiday. After the wedding I would start TTC instead of putting it off a year.

I would not quit working (well when i had a child i might to be a stay at home mum)

Pay off student loans, pay for my grad degree, and FI’s undergrad. I would buy a small-medium size house, and get married sooner rather than later. I would also buy a puppy, give money to the RSPCA, and give presents to family/friends

I’d probably still be on the Wedding Bee, lol. I’d want to give money to my parents and in-laws to help with debt/paying off their houses. Pay off FI’s loans. Travel and donate to charity. Most importantly, invest in a huge library with one of those rolling ladders. 🙂

If I won the lottery, I would:

  • pay off our student loans
  • buy a nice 2-3 bedroom apartment in nyc
  • I think we would still be planning the same wedding, but we would pay, not my parents
  • give to charity
  • send my parents on a wonderful vacation

I would still be on the bee! 🙂

My biggest purchase by far would be moving to Hawaii and buying a nice home overlooking the ocean (in Hawaii that would be 2-3million) I would also start a new outdoor recreation business there (which would take another 2-3 million to start with what I’m thinking I’d like to do!) I would also start having babies immediately following the wedding. My maternity health insurance doesn’t kick in until almost a year after the wedding (which is BS!) so we have to wait. If money was no option I would get started right away…on the night of the wedding!!

 
Other things:

I would foot the bill for yearly family trips with my immediate family (mom/dad, sisters/brothers and their children) Fun things like Disney World, Cruises, Skiing vacations (my favorite trip ever was renting out a mansion in the snowy mountains with my immediate family…ahhh!) This would be probably 20,000 or so each time.

I am already incredibly generous in my every day life with my family so I would continue to do so – I would pay off everyone’s houses, cars, student loans, credit card debt etc. My family is pretty wealthy across the board but I’m sure they appreciate not having any debt whatsoever.

I would hire a personal chef.. Although I love cooking, I love being cooked for more!

I would set up college funds for all my nieces/nephews.
