Classy to ashy is my homage to the late Biggie smalls....(baby babbyyyy!!!!!)

 

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

never heard of biggie smalls, but i'm sure your family and friends will be leaving you alone to enjoy your money by yourself. you are a cheap miser. your family and friends if you have any will be avoiding you like the plague. it won't take long before they start making excuses to stay clear of you if you don't throw them a bone now and then.

    Sounds like a case of  "mo' money mo' problems" 

    I will deal with that after I win.

        Same here. These days, I only buy extra tickets if i win a lower tier prize. I spend $10/week on lottery games buying Powerball, Megamillions, Lotto, and Easy 5 twice a week. If I win a lower tier prize, I usually buy an extra of either the game that won it or one of the other games if there's a higher than normal jackpot.

        I rarely buy extras out of my own pocket anymore.

              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.

              Whether billionaires use the term "budget" is not the issue. Budgeting is a process everyone does if you want to keep your money. If you make a billion and spend a billion, you are out of luck. Budgeting is simply tracking what you spend vs your gains.

                Glad you won something zephbe!  I bought one @ the store, and three more @ home...just want the $2 million and show all these LP naysayers and Sister how to manage money!!  There are very many more positive comments on LP than negative ones though...

                  you're wrong again. it's actual saying of the word "budget" that would be offensive to someone hearing it from a powerball winner. not the act of actually doing it, privately. you cannot use that word verbally without a person or even a relative thinking or saying under his breath " a budget, oh brother, he needs a budget like like i need a new hole in my shoes". i've know this guy or have been related to this guy forever and you'd think he could be a little more generous with his "lucky" turn of events here. i think i'll be hanging out with my poorer friends now, at least they're not throwing that "i'm on a budget" story at me."  unfortunately winning one of these is going to cause resentment and jealousy and while no one is obligated to dole out money to friends and relatives it's the only way you can retain them. you have to buy your friends or they will eventually drift away. and thanks for defining the word budget for me. i didn't know what the word meant. why do you think they have "budget rent-a-car", "budget hotels" and all you can eat buffets for the budget minded. it's used for people looking for a bargain or it's because it's all they can afford.

                      a little excessive but that's more like it. you can't take it with you, let your kids win their own lottery. you know <snip> well how irresponsible they are. so you know they're going to rip through it after your gone. so protecting every nickel so you can leave it to them may not always be wise. in some cases, yes, but usually not.

                        This morning, I asked for 2 mega and 2 PB. The cashier gave me 2 PB and another 2 PB. He asked if it was okay and I was too big of a weenie to say no. Worse, one of the line numbers is 14, 15, 16, 17. LOL

                          I hope the Powerball Jackpot continues to roll until someone hits the largest jackpot in United States history.

                          I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the Powerball to win the largest Powerball Jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars!

                             There was a second place winner from Michigan. Could it be Sully16?

                             The ratio of Annuity:Cash Value is .712  That pushes almost every player who wanted to take the Annuity into the Cash camp.

                             Californians can expect to keep about $143 million after all taxes and the deduction are taken out.

                             Even a million would change my life. I am looking at Treasury notes as my main investment vehicle. 

                             I will place my Living Trust inside my LLC along with the T-notes. Asset protection is the name of this game.

                             There are hungry sharks prowling for victims. Lottery winners have a target on their backs.

                             Here in Cali I do not have to do the press availability or the grip and grin photo shoot. But my name will be released. I plan on giving the Press a statement which will include info. about Lottery Post. I will run it by Todd before then.

                            They didn't put the location where the ticket was sold which would indicate that it is somebody who bought an E-Ticket off the MSL official website.

                              Haven't interest rates been this low or lower since 2001ish?

                              Nope, more like around 2009ish.  They were 4 point something percent back in 07.
