Okay, so you've won the big one, you'll be banking over 20 million dollars, and it's time to pack up and move.

How much of your present belongings will you pack to take into your new life?

I'll take about 15 clothing items, small bag of makeup, my kitchen knives and well-seasoned cast iron pan, my laptop computer, a few financial documents, a small box of personal memento items, my 2 cats and their food.

That's all!  I could fit everything I want into my luggage except the cats.

I'd be moving fast and light, fershure.

    The modern furniture recently purchased I would replace some of those.

    Antique items and items of sentimental value I would take with me.

    Sentimental value is like a story I heard of a woman and her husband who worked to become well off.
    When the two became engaged her future husband could only afford a 1/4 carat diamond. The woman always wore that ring no matter how much money they had.
    She was asked one time why she did not purchase a larger diamond engagement ring.
    She replied. It is the sentimental value the ring I am wearing means to me.

              I'll be putting antique and items of sentimental value, tools, knickknacks and such in storage. Wont need them cause I'll be traveling light for a while. Everything i don't take with me to the new home will be donated or trashed. Meanwhile i'll be on an extended vacation.

                Good question!  I must say, I'd change very little.  I'd keep my "krap" Smile and do some selective upgrades!

                      I Agree!  Those 15 clothing items I'd pack up to take with me are only to tide me over till after the swelling goes down from my lipo, then I'd buy a whole new wardrobe.  lol

                      Good question.

                      I would try to keep only photos and give away the rest.

                            we'd pry get rid of a couple of sofas and beds..... most of our other things are family hierlooms passed down or things we've made yourselves.

                             

                            we have a farm that we like so basically if we won we'd be buying up more land around us and fixing up our farm with more solar and windpower  and permaculture landscaping.  That's the main reason we'd like to win the lottery to speed up our plans and prjects a bit more.
