Ten Miiilllliion Dollars

My boss is in the "Final Stages" with Publisher's Clearing House to win $10,000,000 (that is a lot of zeros). She has been going through the necessary steps just to test her luck. I mean, some one has to win, right?!

Anywho, today we were talking about what we would do if we each won $10,000,000. She said she would help out her family (parents, in-laws, etc.) and maybe spoil herself, husband and kids a bit, but wouldn't go too extravagant. Although this sounds responsible, I think I would do the exact opposite!

I would probably quit my job and start the business my friend's and I have always dreamed of (that is a whole other post), go on a few major shopping sprees, travel around the world, buy a house or two on the beach either in California and/or Hawaii, build a dream house for me and Mr. Pickle, pay off any debt, buy a new car, boat and a motorcycle and because I would feel selfish if I didn't share the wealth I would give some to my friends and family and donate some as well. I guess I would put the rest in savings.

Ahhhhh if only dreams did come true.

Would you make extravagant purchases or hold on to your money?

I would definitely make some crazy purchases but then I would put it in a saving account that gets paid on interest. Its sad to read and hear about people who won the lotto and now are BROKE come on people at least be smart about it. Buy some property to invest in. Etc.. That's super cool good luck for her!

Me too! You only live once right! and I always said if I came into a HUGE cash winning... Lottery, PCH,etc. I would do the shopping spree with my family and live it up! Of course charities would get monies.
