With the recent MegaMillions hoopla, there’s been a lot of dreaming about what we’d do with all that money. What are three things on your “if I won the lottery” list?
1. First thing, I’d pay off all our debt, pay off our houses (though let’s all cross our fingers that the house in SC sells quickly!), pay off the debt for my brothers and parents and make sure everyone has a house. Let’s face it, even if someone had extravagant taste, that is WAY less then a couple million dollars.
2. Set up college funds for all my nieces/nephews (the newest nephew was just born ten days ago! Baby Buzz, or maybe I’ll call him Buzzer? Not his name though LOL makes grandchild number fourteen for our parents), and set aside enough for future generations. And really, that wouldn’t be that much – in the grand scheme of the mega millions.
3. Set up a foundation and give money away. After my family is all taken care of, there are a lot of people who need help. I’d give away scholarships and give money to tribal colleges. I’d give money to artists and crafters. I’d set aside money for the elderly so they are taken care of. I’d try to fix a lot. Most of all, I’d try to not waste so much money.
The mega millions is such a HUGE amount, I can’t even imagine spending it. I can imaging paying off debt and buying houses, but what was the final number, $640 million? That’s crazy!
