If you suddenly received One Million After Tax Dollars, what would you do with it?

1 - I would pay off my student loans.
2 - Go on a nice, long European vacation (hopefully it could double as a honeymoon considering the only reason why were aren't married is because we can't afford to be)
3 - Do something REALLY nice for my parents
4 - Save the rest or invest it wisely.

yea... I'm with Mary....

One Million Dollars is not a lot of money today...

I would pay off all my debt... maybe buy some nice gifts for my rents and andrew (and myself... hehe) and then save the rest...

1 - Student loans
2 - Fund an ultra-low budget film
3 - Put the left over pennies in savings.

1) I'd pay off all of my debt, and my mom's. If possible, my brother's too. Maybe even my stepdad's! But debt is definitely #1
2) Buy a car! I soo need a better car.
3) If possible, buy a house/condo
4) Invest some of it.
5) take a nice vacation somewhere not too expensive so I can do more with less :)

I would not spend it all. Maybe get some CDs (not the music kind, the money kind). Donate some of it, too.

I'm not very original, but it's really what I'd do. Before my dad died, my #2 on the list would've been to build him an awesome house to replace the shitty one he lived in. Ah well...

$1Million isn't a whoooole lot nowadays but I think I'd be able to do a lot with it =)

It's funny how we think $1,000,000 doesn't go very far.
I would invest the whole amount and set up a trust, then distribute the interest among my family. It would be a security blanket.

1. Pay off all debt, Which includes giving big chunks to the friends and family who have helped me out along the way.
2. Buy a new car, not that I don't like mine...I just want a new one.
3. Buy a House...I'm so tired of renting I want to puke.
4. Buy new furniture...come on, my apartment type furniture would look silly in a new house.
5. Invest the rest in CDs, money markets, and maybe IRAs.

Right well I'm having £1million sterling! I would invest half. Pay off my mum's and my grandmother's houses. Put £50,000 into a trust for my sister. I would continue to work and I would expect her to work after the age of 21. Do something nice for my dad and buy a nice car for myself. Now that's what I would like to do. I'd probably end up frittering it away somehow.
