The first rule is to shut up. So many want to blab about their good fortune but don't know beans about how to handle it or themselves. I know of ine peeson who sat on his winning ticket for almost a whole year before cashing in. It wasn't because he didn't know it but he waited until everyone forgot about it. Then I would go out and invest it under the professional advice. But only after I pay my debts and mive to better quarters. Then I would travel.

If I received a large windfall of money (lottery?) I would give to my brother and his family so they would not have to worry anymore, give money to charity (please don't call!) and invest some, as well as save some.  I have very few needs myself, not that I am wealthy, but I don't have the need to buy things I don't need.

Depending on amount, I would first thank my Higher Power, then pay off my bills, really retire (working part time at 74), and quilt,sew and travel!

I would pay off ALL of our bills, build a home and buy the necessary vehicles.  I would also give some money to immediate family members, as well as donate to a variety of charities.  Somewhere along the line, I'd take a trip to Ireland.

What I would do is give my two children a very large portion to take care of themselves and enjoy life while they are young, create life accounts (buy house, car, etc.) for my seven grandchildren, and education/what they want accounts for my eight great-grandchildren.

 

For myself and spouse: pay everything off, buy luxury RV, matching motorcycles, small plane, and adventure through the rest of our lives!

First, I would take a trip to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab UT to volunteer & make an in-person donation.  Then I'd buy a house with enough room to have people over for dinners & such (I live in a small apartment), move my dad in with me (he's currently in a nursing home) and hire a nurse for him for things that I'm not qualified to handle.  Then I'd open savings accounts for all 5 of my grandsons.

I would rent a bigger apartment and build a studio space in the garage. Then I would paint and make art prints to sell in galleries. I could do it now, but I have no inventory and no space to work in.
