    first i would pay off our car loan, our credit cards, then buy a house in the country. i would pay of my oh's father and step mothers house, buy my sister and her boyfriend a house, and take my family for a vacation. of course i would donate a good chunk to a charity, most likely breast cancer research. i would also put aside money for alexa to go to university and money for a wedding for her. i would then put the rest in savings- if oh let me lol

    i would start by paying off all me and OH's debts... i'd buy an amazing house, new car for OH because his is about to bite the dust... i'd pay off my mom's mortgage and debts... give my brothers enough money to get themselves each a car, or maybe down payment on a house... and i'd probably put half away..

    depending on how much we're talking about winning!!! lol

    I would pay off our bills and loans to start. Pay off my parents debt & buy them a house & decent car. Buy a car and house for us. Put some away for childrens education/weddings and give some to charity.

    well i assume you mean millions. I would buy myself a house and my parents, pererably biuld my own design as I used to design houses. Then when thats getting done go major shopping, maybe holiday but since being pregnant thats not possible at the min so be lots of beby stuff bought.
    has a race track! I just have to! can have a track day in the bikes with all my mates. can even let others come in and start a buisness there.
    when suitable to to amsterdam with OH parents and baby.
    Buy loads of crap, only not really crap i would still hopeflly be sensible with the money.
    course i would donate some to charity and possibley open some biker cafes! help the animal rescue centre it cost £4000 a month to run that place and they rely on doations and never meet that, so i would take over that cost. Aint much to a millionair.
    that just for starters.

    it is so great to dream! michael has said he would also continue to work even if we won the jackpot, so we could live care free. i have also told oh i would like to put alexa into private school, but he said no.
     
  15. I would definitely put my kids into private school if I won the lottery.

    First of all, id go on holiday and not tell a sole until i was there.
    Id buy a nice house in wales, nothing to big or fancy because i wouldent want to pay a bomb in council tax (though it has to have a cellar that we can use as a snooker room/bar). Id buy my hubby a sports car and a 7 seater family car.
    Id open trust funds for the kids so that they was secure in their adult lifes.
    And we'd start our own buisness while we had the cash to invest in it, so that hopefully, no matter what happend, we would be set up for life.
    Id also buy my parents that house in stratford they have always wanted because they have done so much for me and my family over the years.
    And thats about it, everyone else can whistle if they think they are getting any of it.

    Pay off my student loan, buy a house + car for me, same for my sister and same for my parents...and invest the rest. And obviously I'd put some away for Meredith. I'd probably fly my best friends on some awesome trip somewhere to celebrate but I'd be saving most of it I would say.

    Pay off our mortgage and get a bigger house, pay off loans and business loans, sort both sets of parents so they don't struggle. probably help out OHs Brothers financially.
    Then invest some for the kids and put the rest to savings.
