Re: So if you have $500 million...?

I think i'd be scared if I won... imagine all these people that would try to hunt me down? I'd probably hire a security team first! get a lawyer... definitely pay off all our debts as well as those of our families... DH would def quit his job as its very stressful, but I wouldn't mind working at least part time

Re: So if you have $500 million...?

Id like a nice house.. enough room for my kids to play and grow, no more renting and moving.

Def put away for our kids futures so they dont have to struggle like we have.

Get a full body makeover to fix allll the mess 3 pregnancies have done to me!

Buy my husband a martial arts school and have him run that for a living.. he be happy as a clam.

id prob do some kind of work.. maybe learn to photograph babies and do it for fun/money.

Id buy my dad a home and a car. Id buy my MIL a home also. They have been the ones to always help us over the years when they didnt have much to begin with.

and to spoil myself a little id hire a housekeeper and maybe a cook.. mostly so my house is always taken care of so I can spend more time with the kids and so we can all eat healthy. Maybe Id get a personal trainer too :)

I prob would quit.. but just until my kids were older. Id like to enjoy thier childhood.

Re: So if you have $500 million...?

DH and I were talking about this and we would give 1 mil to his parents, 1 mil to my parents, 1 mil to his brother & sil, and 500,000 to my brother (he's not married Chat Icon )

We would take care of college for my niece & nephew.

DH and I are expecting our first child but both agree we would have more kids up to 4.

Both quit our jobs. I would love to have my own restaurant, cafe, clothes boutique (or all three!). I would also really love to work with animals especially dog rescues fostering dogs etc.

I would buy myself a bentley. Just haven't decided on the color Chat Icon I'm sure Dh will buy several cars.

We both agree that we would finish renovating the house we are in now just to see "our project" completed. Then we'd sell it.

We'd buy a mansion, nothing too outrageous though. And I want a penthouse in NYC by central park. A vacation home somewhere warm would be nice too.

Sigh. I can go on but I won't. Chat Icon

Re: So if you have $500 million...?

My husband would still work, but he would quite his night job. We would totally gut our house and redo the entire thing. We would pay the remainder of our mortgage off, cars paid off, bills paid off. We would buy my dh a truck. I'd pay my sisters' college tuitions. I'd pay for my brother to be able to come back her with his new born daughter and buy them a house. We'd give my dh's aunt and cousin a million and my best friends a 100,000.

Re: So if you have $500 million...?

I would still work at my current job, DH would not - but I like my job, and he does not.

I would not give one dime to any of my immediate family. One of DH's sisters could use a little bit of financial help, and we would do that.

I would set up a college fund for my DD. I would set up a retirement/investment fund for DH & I. I would clear up existing debt, including my current mortgage. I would begin house hunting - not for a mansion, but a house that was large enough for the family, but not so large that I needed to hire a cleaning service to take care of it.

DH wants an electric car, so we would get that. I would probably get a hybrid.

We would then set aside money to take one glorious vacation a year (maybe two).

Quit my job and be able to have children and stay home with them. Do some volunteer work. Donate. Travel.

Save the other $490 million. Chat Icon

I would retire my DH and Dad- the 2 most hardworking people I know. Take a huge family vacation with extended family. Buy a home with stables and land to rescue animals. Donate to St. Jude.

Re: So if you have $500 million...?

First, i'd give a chunk to Church and Charity, would love to help those less fortunate and donate to some needy organizations. I've also always dreamt of developing some sort of foster home and helping children in need, those without parents or parents who are going through difficult times.

I am certain we would still work, probably not full time but I think i'd go back to school and finally become a teacher.

DH and I were actually just talking about this on the way to work and he was saying that he'd set himself up beachfront and learn to trade stocks. He's a weirdo lol

Truth be told though, my first step would probably be to the car dealer to pick up my new Range Rover lol

I would be afraid to have that much money... KWIM?

I would like a cool million... enough to pay off debt, put some away for college and buy a nice home.



I agree with this. Mo' Money Mo' problems... I really DONT want to be that filthy rich.

1. I'd finish up the projects I was working on at work then leave. Pretty sure that would take more than 2 weeks.

2. New cars - I'd be very interested in hybrids. I hate spending money on gas, even if I had $500 million

3. Buy a new house, not too big but one with a better layout/driveway

4. Help out some friends/family

5. Vacation!

If I won al that money though, I would set up a charity so women who do not get infertility coverage in their medical plans could get things like drugs and procedures covered, as well as help towards adoption and surrogacy fees if needed.
