As a financially comfortable retiree still paying a low interest mortgage and HELOC, I would most likely apply the winnings to the mortgage.  This would decrease my required monthly interest only payments allowing me to continue reducing the debt at a faster rate.

Give it my daughter and family to purchase a home. She was out of work for years and went through her savings. My dream is for my grandchildren to be settled in one specific area within a loving environment and dream their dreams.

It's time to dream.  Imagine you just won $50,000.   What would you do with the prize money?   Would you put this money towards your retirement? Pay down/off bills? Help a family member? Donate to your favorite charity?   Let your imagination flow!

Sandy,
I would pay off debt first, put money in savings for emergencies, give 10% to my church and if anything is left take a short family vacation.

I would pay off my debts and put the rest in savings to you for things I need, like a new recliner since mine is showing its 20 yrs age. I might also see about a newer used car since my 1994 one is also showing its age.
