    If I won the lottery tomorrow, I would.......

    If you won the lottery tomorrow (1 million dollars), what would be the first thing you'd buy or do with your winnings?

    If I won the lottery, the first thing I would do is look for something to invest in. I realize that doesn't sound like much fun, but I'd like to think I would be able to remember what it was like to be financially unstable and would do anything to prevent that from happening again.

    What would you do with your winnings?

    Fun question!

    I would go travel the world for a couple months then invest the rest in some houses!



    Re: If I won the lottery tomorrow, I would.......


    I think the first thing I'd do is pay off all my debts.

    After that, I would immediately put the rest (most of it) in savings and use some of that to pay for the rest of school.

    Have a good one!

    Fun forum topic! Investing sounds like a smart move but first I would definitely allow myself to travel the world for a bit.

    I’d pay off my student loans!

    Re: If I won the lottery tomorrow, I would.......

    I'd probably pay off my student loans and car, too, and pay for my schooling/living investments. Maybe buy a place so I don't have to worry about rent! But I also like the idea of investing so I can have more money/future financial stability. I worry about losing money on investments, but I guess if I invest in safe places I'm more likely to get returns.

    I've heard that some people end up unhappier after winning big loots in the lottery, so I'd need to be careful about the kind of purchases I make. I heard that people can come after you for a slice of the pie. I'd want to share the wealth with my friends but I wouldn't want to be taken advantage of.

    If it's a big pot, I definitely would want to donate as well to worthy causes, such as programs for babies and youth. Or maybe use the money to start a nonprofit that I can be the CEO of or be a benefactor to a cause I am passionate about. I like the idea of using money to influence the world in a positive way.

    Re: If I won the lottery tomorrow, I would.......

    The first thing I'd probably do with the 1 million dollars is to allot some of that money (roughly $70000 - $75000) to pay off the remaining costs I have to pay to attend Georgia Tech, which would absolutely relieve me from stressing about winning scholarships or having to pay a burdensome loan.

    Then, I'd use another $120000 to help my parents pay off their house, as I know that, as the first - generation of my family to live in America, they worked extremely hard to provide me an opportunity to make most of my future here, and they absolutely love the house they live in now.

    I'd like to keep $50000 to give some financial security just in case anything drastic or unexpected happens in my life, not to mention use some of that money for miscellaneous purposes such as vacations and dinner outings. I'd like to give yet another $100000 to one of my good friends, as her family is currently facing very dire, pressuring financial circumstances, and I really hate to see her suffer as she does. I'd like to give yet another $50000 to 25 of my best friends ($2500 for each person).

    Finally, I'd give the rest of the remaining $600000 dollars to various Christian missions of my choosing, as I really care deeply about my faith and want to see the Good News spread in the most effective way possible. Besides that, keeping all one million dollars to myself would create great guilt inside me, as I know I would be selfish hoarding all that money to myself!

    Re: If I won the lottery tomorrow, I would.......

    I would definitely want to go on a vacation, but I would use some money to help pay off my grandmothers surgeries and any family who has been to the hospital and has large bills. I would also put away money for my college fund and my sisters so we will be secure. I get really sad when I see homeless people so I want to donate money to many organizations for children and shelters and give some to the homeless. Of course my parents get money and then... VACAY here I come! I want everything to be secure before I go and have a fun time

    Hi everyone!! If I won lottery I would do a few things with it. I would be able to pay for college and I would even pay for my brother to go to college too. Next I would invest some money for my future. Then I would buy my mom a bakery so she can go be her own boss and have fun making all of her yummy goodies for everyone!! My dad could retire early and do whatever he would like to do!! Like coaching softball lol....
