like how much are we talkin'? 1 mill? 350 mill? there's a big difference!
post #3 of 28
the newest stuff is always way over priced,
pack up the cats the computers, move some place warm to live.
heck i may even tell the wife. where i went

I would move into a bigger house so I could keep more pets, set up a trust fund for my neice, start a no kill shelter, build houses for my family, and get them all new cars, and put the rest away for a rainy day!

I would pay off all debts that my parents, brother and I have accumulated then buy my parents a new car and maybe buy myself a new house (I have never owned a house) I would probably adopt more pets and continue doing some volunteer work

I would pay off my (and my family's) debts, buy a nice but not extravagant house with some land, also start a no kill shelter and probably buy houses for my sisters and start a trust fund for my neice and nephew

Matt and I once talked about this and all he wants is a high diving board on the front lawn with no pool so people will know he is crazy

Now that would be worth winning the lotto for!

I'd be doing the same as most people here - pay off family's debts, trust fund for nephews, rescue lots of animals.
Think of all the good that would come of TCSers winning the lottery!

We had a guy here in Canada that won some money and he didn't tell his wife. He waited until they separated legally before cashing in his ticket - his wife contested it and I'm not sure, but I think the courts gave her half since they were still together at the time of the winning jackpot.

I remember that, she got half and the judge fined him for witholding information from the courts in the divorce settlement

Oh yeah I remember that! What a prize that guy was. $30 million he won, and he couldn't give his wife any?! Glad he cot fined.

Pay off student loan, DH's debt, & Mom's Debt. By mom a new place with a maid & fix up the old house to sell it. By all 3 of us cars. All 7 cats would get a full work up(blood & scans). Donate & invest. I guess pay MIL's debt too and new house since I am married now.
post #16 of 28
First thing? Practice saying no to the myriad of relatives asking for a handout.

Then pay off the debts, build a nice house, hire a gardener so mom can still enjoy the daylilies, and me a pool boy - even though there's no pool.
post #17 of 28
I'd take care of the debts of myself, parents, brother and sister. Get myself a house and build a fish house so I can have more and more fishies. I think I would still keep my job but I wouldn't work another day or hour of overtime in my life.
post #18 of 28
I would pay off ALL our debts, and also every bill we got!! I would probly buy my mom a house and give her some $$$, I would make sure every animal shelter got some money, and hopefully be able to build me some sort of rescue/refuge for all the unwanted creatures(big and small)
post #19 of 28
ok 150 mill?

I'd build my own home, in this area, but outside of the city....with lots of extra space/areas to foster some kitties. And of course it would have all the needed stuff, a pool, fireplace, hot tub, a few extra bedrooms....walk in closets, the works....and we would want the house to be kitty friendly, lots of holes and walkways between rooms & stuff, maybe their own "kitty condo bedroom" where the walls are made of cat paths!

pay off my debt/cars etc....buy a SUV for me (so I don't have to borrow DH's)

pay off my parents home, my sisters home, my sil's home, buy my baby sister a house.....pay off their debts

go on a vacation all around the world....Africa, Australia, Europe, Tahiti.....and of course bring the felines!

buy a shore home, somewhere close enough to either drive or fly.....
build a cabin in the Pocono's (I own an empty acre of land there....)

invest a big chunk....

start a trust for Jazzy.....

donate some.....

hmmmm....maybe a little lipo?!?! followed up with a HOT personal trainer.....
post #20 of 28
I would take care of my family & friends, and then open up a nationwide non profit cat rescue and name it "Susie's Kitties" We turn away no one! (of course now, that lotto would have to be a big WAD)
post #21 of 28
I would move down south and take my friends with me. Spend all my time playing volleyball on the beach. Adopt a bunch of cats and dogs..and also would probably travel the world

Oh, buy my mom, sister and bro a house..and buy a nice new car. Maybe a Range Rover or a Subaru B9 Tribeca
post #22 of 28
Let's see....if the amount I got after taxes et et was at least 60 Million. I'd pay off my debts, and give each of my siblings a mil each, and quit my miserable job. I'd give 10 percent of it back to God, as well.

Then I would buy a condo in New York City near Central Park. I would also buy a condo here in Los Angeles. I'd buy a couple of horses and board them in the best boarding stable in the area.

I'd spend the rest of my life living in the style I've always dreamed of, with the best electronic gadgets available.

Move into a BRAND NEW house, that has a drain in the basement, then I'd keep doing what I'm doing.

STUPID BASEMENT!

Let's see....

First thing I'd do is pay off my debts, buy my parents a house in Savannah or Charleston, sell my dad's practice here and buy him a smaller, more mellow one down there and give him a couple mil to live on since his practice will be smaller. It's be fully-loaded, though.

I'm put my MIL in the most top-notch rehabilitation in the country, in addition to getting her the best oncologist money can buy. I'd buy her a small house with a big yard near Ian and I (but not WITH us...oh god). We'd give some to FIL to buy a better house and car.

Ian and I would buy a condo in the city. We'd start education trusts for our future children. We'd also buy a house with some land and stables to go to for the weekend, and we'd hav rescued horses out there and we'd have professional caretakers as well as special needs children who would benefit from riding lessons and helping with horses. We'd be out there every weekend.

Oh, and this house...it'll have a dishwasher and soaking tub for me, and a couple plasma TV's for Ian. And a decent piano, as my students could benefit from having some lessons with an accompanist. We're not TOO extravaggant.

We would also have no student loan debt. I'd pay off my sister and brother's future mortgages. Of course, if this is going to happen NOW, I'd put them both through college instead.
I'd open the 2nd location my shelter wants to open, and make it suitable for rescued dogs as well.

I'd have one REALLY NICE flute.

I supposed we'd travel some...Ian's the travel freak, whereas I'm content to just stick around home. But I wouldn't be OPPOSED to globe-trotting!

We all have some pretty nice dreams, don't we?
post #26 of 28
I would start a low cost/free mobile spay neuter van!! and move to a city with no limit on cats(i am sorta dealing with that as they have a limit of 5 cats....) probably get a few more cats(lol ok probably another 25-but hey room would be no object) but other wise i would do the same thing I have just on a less tight budget good topic
post #27 of 28
Pay off the condo, pay off my parents' RV and their new SUV, buy a house with acreage.
post #28 of 28
I'd probably buy my own house, give my parents money to pay off this house, buy them and my brother a new car.. start a misunderstood dog breed rescue, build a dog park here and buy a lifetime supply of chocolate.
