Quoting TheNuge:" What would YOU do with your winnings?"


Buy a dozen nice properties, put my mom in one of them, rent out the ones we don't live in.



Set aside $10 million for LO & go back to school.



Donate $300 million to various charities and causes.

Good thing you plan on spending/investing more. Otherwise, people might say you were an evil, selfish rich person.

Yes, i bought a ticket. I rarely buy lottery tickets. I just like to dream about winning and i usually dont think about it much unless i have a ticket.

Haha. For sure.



Nah. If I wanted to be an evil, selfish, rich person, I'd put that shit in a swimming pool, swim around in it, and then light it on fire.



I mean, that's what rich people do, right?

10% to buy a house/travel/junk
50% in investments/gold/DD's college fund
10% in prepping supplies and land plus quite a few weapons and ammo and possibly a decomissioned piece of artillery

Sorry you will have to keep earning.



My tenants have so many tales of woe these days. There is only so much I can do to help right now. Hitting Powerballl would have been REALLY cool for nearly everyone in my world. Oh well.

Quoting TheNuge:" What would YOU do with your winnings?"



I would pay off my debt, my mom's debt and my grandma's debt first.
I would buy a home and a bigger car to suit our family.
I would make a trust fund/college fund for all of the kids.
I would donate to a cause I believe in.
I would tip the person who sold me the winning ticket.
I'd go on vacation/travel the world.
Then I'd save the rest....

Oh, I would still finish school and work.
I'd also not only pay my grandparent's debt off, I'd give them money and buy them a new home if they wanted. My mom too.
I'd also help out the rest of the important people in my family. Like give them a large sum of money, pay for their school, whatever.
My family would definitely not want for anything.
