    The amount of actual winnings when you win the lottery dictates the type of lifestyle you will be able to afford.  It also is affected by how many people have to be supported by those winnings.  The larger the winnings the higher the lifestyle I can afford.  But one thing is certain when I win a jackpot I will be treating myself to a brand new Cadillac.  That is something that I have always wanted since I first started to play the lottery regularly over 10 years ago.-weshar75

      I think I'd still be cheap, but reward myself once in a while.  I'm a simple person with simple needs.  Anything more, and on a consistent basis would be money down the drain, IMO.

        You know I used to think that would be great fun.  However, just like everything else you can do to extremes, it would get boring.

        Do not get me wrong I like nice stuff but too much stuff causes one to feel uneasy.  You find yourself having to protect your stuff, worry about your stuff and try to keep up with your stuff.  It just is not worth it.

        However, I have not had the luxuary of having that problem so if I did I may feel different but I do not think so.

            I been watching travel channel #88.

            Hotel rooms $15,000 per night.  I wonder what kind of tip to leave. lol

            Plane tickets $10,000

            Dinning $500 per meal.

            I may have to rethink going first class all the time.

              The quickest way to wind up with nothing is to act like there is a never ending supply of money in the pipeline.

              Pilelines DO run dry.

              Be smart. Yes, indulge a bit -- but by all means be smart.

                Yes I would. But I won't spend on a $10,000 airplane ticket. First class seats provide comfort at reasonable price. It's not a thrown for the Kings to be seated.

                      I think someone hit the nail on the head, age has ALOT to do with how such a sum of money is invested or squandered. As a lady of mid age, I doubt I need all the fluff and pompous lifestyle to fullfill the happiness that my family can achieve. One cannot buy a genuine smile from a grandchild or the laughter on Christmas morning, be it first class or not.  Riddle me this, Does a person in first class get to die first or last when the plane takes a nose dive? Does the person in first class arrive any quicker then the rest of the occupants of a plane

                            Being a travel agent, years ago we used to be able to upgrade to first class when there was space available.  That's been gone for many years now.  But,way back when, the flight attendants used to come down the aisle and slice roast beef, pork, etc. right there, serve vegetables and potatoes from china bowls, keep your tails refilled, serve ice cream and warm desserts........it was great service.  Now days, aside from the extra room in the seats, you don't get anything to rave about unless you are flying a foreign/international carrier.  So,flying within the U.S., first class really is nothing to rave about.

                            Good Luck!

                              Good advice.  I'll bet there are past winners who wish they'd taken such advice at the beginning.
