How would you spend it!!??

Just thought I'd ask....If you one the Lottery around your neck of the woods, What would you spend it on????

I'm going to hold back what I would do until a bit later

Do, or do not, there is no try !

Re: How would you spend it!!??

Build myself a custom home. A 2000 sqft home with a 10k sqft garage. The old lady could have the house, but the garage would be my man den. Put the kids through college.

Re: How would you spend it!!??

I'd buy 50 to 100 acres and build my house in the middle of it. Buy sum toys for me and my boy . Retire at 29 and have fun with my son in the sun. I'd probly get in shape from playing all day.

No matter where you go, there you are.

Re: How would you spend it!!??

I currently have no bills apart from running costs of the house and running costs of the cars... (oh and the kids pocket money)

I would sell my house, find a nice bit of land in the countryside, like the others say build my own house to my own specifications, build two barns, one for my cars and bikes (of course I would want B/N tools + lifts) and also one for a few animals, and then just go about my buisness relaxing for the rest of my life.

A big fraction of the money would go towards the kids e.g. education, buying them a house, savings accounts or saving for their kids etc but I would also make use of it to make my life easier...

Money doesn't bring you happiness, it might help indirectly don't get me wrong but with great power comes great responsibilities like .OrgOwner once told me.

What would you do Jazz?

A very large lottery win, so we're talking millions...so basically the lotteries that i know of such as the euromillions you're looking at 28 million, varies from week to week. Have known it to be a lot more.

Ahh me, well after getting the house, VERY LARGE GARAGE full of bikes, track in the HUUUge back garden/field, I would want to do something for my friends, something very special.

That'll keep for now, keep an eye on this thread, and when I'm feeling brave enough I will reveal all, unless someone else has the same idea(doubt it tho)

Do, or do not, there is no try !

Oh dear Bucko . How big by the way?

I was young and stupid then. I'm old and stupid now.
We get too soon old, and too late smart.
I started off with nothing and still have most of it left.

No need to move to the sun SSB. Come over here while we're having our little heat wave thingy . I drank nearly 5 litre of water today.

Re: How would you spend it!!??

As for me I would do the same as most of us, except for Bucko that is . Build a nice house with whatever the little lady desired, a shed with all the bells and whistles, new toys( bikes,boats, jet ski's etc,etc,) set the kids up for their future and also me and the wife, then I would love to meet all the nutters here on the Org.. either me go to them or better still shout every one a sleepover over here in OZ if the budget would stretch that far and then you all could go and trek around OZ for a while .
