    I'd pay off ALL my family's debts and pay my student loans-- before I begin to splurge on clothes and a trip all over the world!

    I'd buy my dream home on a beach in Southern California.

    First I'd buy myself a drink to celebrate, and then I'd go out and buy a financial planner to help me figure out what else to do!

    My house. I would pay it off and get rid of that large payment.  Then I would get a good tax advisor so I could keep as much of it as possible for the family's future.

    My first purchase would be a car. After that I would pay off my student loans and give money to my family. Then I'd travel around the world smile

    I would do so much, if I won the lottery. If I won a million, I would:

    1. Buy a house in the country with a few acres of land. I would set up an animal sanctuary, and care for sick and injured animals. This has always been a dream of mine.
    2. I'd help out my family financially.
    3. My daughter has always wanted a little pug dog, so this would be a top priority!

    Stock in a few different companies. Then I would pay for plenty of college classes. After college, with the money left over, buy a three bedroom home and put a shed in the backyard for my office area.

    It depends on how much I win.

    If it is a small amount, then I would make someone go shopping for all the people I love..have that person.call them and ask them what they want..

    If it is a substantial amount then I would fund all the meritorious and innovative projects on my desk.
