With 10 million dollars I would buy many things:* I would move out of my mothers house RIGHT NOW and buy myself an old, big, farmhouse to live in. * Then I would buy my own laptop, video camera, and a new digital camera.* I would turn the barn of my farmhouse into a awesome...
More money than I could actually spend.
Get my arse out of debt including Mortgage. Move to a newer house (but not a serious upgrade). Never tell my kids so they stay hungry for school and life (they can keep guessing how we paid for college...etc.)
Setup up a non-profit...
I would want the cash in 100 dollar Bills and then I would buy a big safe and lock it up. Then I would investigate trust funds and various other investment opportunities before I deposited it any where. I am thinking I would have one trust fund that would provide enough interest...
But I'd spend the other half just living my life without having to work my butt off. Depends how many kids I have later on. I wouldn't let it make me launch into this super-luxurious lifestyle with all kinds of expensive things, at least I'd try not to. But yeah, I'd quit my job...
Pay of kids and my college loans.
Pay of bills.
Pay out for my husband's early retirement.
Gift money to my church.
Gift money to my family.
Buy a new house.
Buy a new car.
Invest in a family business that my kids would be happy running together.
Get a personal trainer.
Give half to my mom.
Split half of the other half between saving account deposit and financial products investment,
take the last quarter and just go travel travel and travel,
until I figure out what else to make better use of my time with that money.
I would share it. I would pay off everything I owe which is little today and then set up funds that helped people that are struggling for no real reason other than life didn't serve them well. I would help people that are trying to help themselves. Idiots that send me messages...
