 I am planning on only investing in CDARS and Treasury Notes and also Treasury Bills. Then I will live on a budget and be able to say NO to all comers. I may need a financial assistant to say NO to the persistent requests. I will refer them to my financial adviser.

Whatever you do avoid buying jewelry, especially gold chains that are worn over an unbuttoned shirt exposing your chest hairs. There is this Lil diner l visit on occasions and this ex Vegas guy has that look. He probably was told he looks hot. Dude is in his late 60', maybe early 70's..It's quite a sight,  believe you me.

        I like the fact it landed on 333.   I thought mega millions landing on 333 a couple weeks ago was my final omen that I would win.  After all I have been seeing 333 for a few years now.   But, alas, no win on mega for me.   I am sure powerball won't stay on 333 after all is said and done, but I am hopeful.   I am crossing my fingers.   

         

        Of course I got a chinese cookie some years back that said I would travel and collect a fortune.  Crossing fingers.   

         

        Good luck to all though.  If not me, I hope it is one of you.

        Hi SWS, why is 333 your lucky number?

            Somehow I missed an entire season on HGTV "My Lottery Dream Home".  Watching it now, guy and wife won $180 million on the California lottery in 2015 first and last name as well as their story plastered all over the place.  Another episode in 10'.  I don't think that is such a wise idea IMO.

              Along the same lines....

               

              Some Indian dude ( money lender in india) made headlines when he commissioned a shirt to be made out of gold so that he can attract the ladies...

               

               

              Well, just read that he was beaten to death by some mob....

               

              Lesson here....stay well clear of gold worn on your person as a show of wealth

                      you don't get it either. no comprehension of how much money 300 million is. there's a middle road 99% of people take to ensure they don't lose it all. but to deny yourself in order to "save" or " invest" it all is ludicrous. classy to ashy, how poetic. the word "budget" should be a requirement in order to get your check that you are not allowed to utter that word again. telling your cohorts, friends, or family that you're on a "budget" will make you the butt of jokes by all of them. have fun hoarding it,

                        A "budget" is subject to a variety of views and is mostly tied to wealth or the amount of income produced. Music may have a budget of $2k or $50k per month and it will most likely be based on his financial situation so I don't really think it was idiotic at all.

                          Amen. Cynthia Stafford had no budget so she lost it all. A budget is relative to your income.

                            There is no denying one's self with 300 million plus....just taking it easy and enjoying the ride in a measured manner.

                             

                            Telling friends and family that you are on a budget is the best way to keep them off your case for handouts....I will tell them I told my lawyer to only authorize a pre-set amount to be dispersed from my trust and to me alone. They don't need to know if I do or don't have easy access to it....it's MY money....blah blah blah

                              it's the word "budget" that most people relate to as a tool used by the less than affluent to help them survive. it is demeaning to use it if you are rich. people sneer and ridicule someone who has hit the lottery hearing them announce that they are on one. saying you're "wisely invested" sounds better.
