I would buy a new car for me because it is 12 years old. I would set aside money for my granddaughters college education, donate to the food bank, and take a cruise with the family. After that, I have no more wants. I would find some really good causes and give away a lot of money.

I would build a beautiful Rest Home/Private Hospital for the elderly, and have lovely grounds with trees they can sit under in the shade, to enjoy. I would also have in it a lockable swimming pool for water therapy and swimming. Pay the staff above the usual very low 'going-rate' to attract good long-term staff, and them by that time I would be needing to reside in it myself LOL! Actually that has ALWAYS been a dream of mine (not the living in one but owning a better than 'fit-for-purpose' home.)

I would also ensure that my son and daughter and both grandchildren were well set up financially, and then donate generous sums to causes very close to my heart.

I would buy a custom-built house for us and a home for my mother on the grounds so that she could live in the same city and state with me. If she'd come. If she wouldn't, I'd buy the building my church is in for my church by paying off the mortgage.

Leslie, those are both great things to spend money on!!

You make a good point about doing that for ALL your grandsons. It made me realize that I would need to do something for my eldest sister and brother, as well, or it might cause hard feelings.

I would buy freedom from debt for myself, and set up funds for my grandsons to go to university and travel. (Obviously couldn't do that for just one of them!) emoticon

If you won millions in the lottery, what is one thing you would buy for yourself and one thing you would buy for someone else?



I would buy a beach cottage for myself and I would pay off my middle sister's home mortgage. (My eldest sister and brother's homes are already paid for)
