    What would be your first big purchase if you won the lottery?

    I would buy a property at the beach and build my own little campground for friends! What about you?

    I would pay off college loans first, then maybe a house and a nice car.

    I would pay off all my credit cards and student loans.  Then I would pay for a big trip to Hawaii.  I would stay at a nice resort for a while.  Perhaps I would make a stop in Vegas before heading to Hawaii.  I've never been there before either, but I've heard it helps to break up the plane ride to stop there along the way.

    My dream would be to buy a massive house away from the city with loads of land.

    I would pay off ALL my debt, loans, credit cards, etc.  Then I would buy myself a modest house, nothing major. Then I would buy a house nearby for my father. Get us both new cars. After that maybe I would round up my entire family and take us all on a vacation somewhere exotic where none of us have ever been.  I would also invest enough that I could possible never have to work again.

    After paying off my debt, funding the college accounts and putting money away for retirement, I would probably buy a bigger house. Nothing extravagent just a little bigger, and newer, than we have now.

    After buying myself an Alienware custom laptop, I'd buy a nice little wood and put a humble home there. Nothing too far from the city, maybe a couple miles from it. There, I'd get married, publish a book or two, and settle down to enjoy life, get some hobbies, praise God, you know, the little things in life.

    I like the custom Alienware idea!  I would probably get one too.

    After that, I would buy a nice, secluded, private island with crystal blue water and white sand.  Then I would build everything I would need to live on there, including wireless internet so I could still check HubPages!

    My dream house in the country with beautiful gardens that I could enjoy all year round. I would have a gardner or two of course so that I wouldn't have to do any weeding, mowing the lawn etc. I would buy a private woodland for my exclusive use and for family and friends. If I had this I would be content.

    After paying off all of my bills I would first buy my Husband a new truck.  His is 10 years old, still runs but is starting to look bad.  I would then refinish my kitchen and the rest of the house.
