    First i would pay all of my bills, then my mother bills.  I would pay off everbody mortgage in full, if we needed we could always sell a house.  Then I would put a lump sum away for my children.  Buy me a home in different states and a car or SUV. Donate to charity like St jude hospital. Travel a little , continue to play the lottery and relax.

    Party

        First share some money with my relatives,

        then pay of debts,

        then buy a large condo high up in a highrise with a view,

        then buy some EXPENSIVE, but not necessarily big things.

         

        For the moment it's just fantasy, but I am working on it.

          Depends on how much I win.  Too many choices.   I've never set my goals on winning tens of millions, just enough to be comfortable, get good medical care when needed, and guarantee a steady flow of income for life when I retire.  I would try to stay out of the spotlight and live a quiet life with a few good friends and a couple of pets.  If I didn't need to work at all, I would try to spend more time volunteering in my community.

            I agree. I don't have plans set in stone. It all depends on different factors.

              The first thing I plan to do is pay everything I owe off, i.e. mortgage, car, couple of credit cards, etc., then I'd wait.  I'd keep working for a little while and go on with life as usual until the initial shock wears off and then decide what to do.  Depending on how much it is, I'd probably try to set myself up so I wouldn't have to work anymore and perhaps move somewhere with a lower cost of living so the money will last longer.  I don't want to have problems like alot of others have so I'll make sure that doesn't happen.

                Pay off all my debts - mortgage, car loan,etc, set up trusts for my two kids (both are adults), pay off both sisters mortgages (Mom & Dad have already paid theirs off), then figure out a way to give each of them, their spouses & children money without paying too much in taxes.  I don't think I will avoid the taxes, though. I'll leave that to the experts. Immediate family only. I am still close to some of my ex's family, but I am not sure if I will include them.  A couple of them stood by me during the divorce, so I would probably do something for them.

                Since I live 1000 miles away, I will move back to my home state to be near my own family, and if I don't win enough to live comfortably I will work at some paying job - working on that alternative, too.

                   I will pay off all my debts first. Then I'll share the prize with my family members (mom, dad, and 2 sisters). I'll buy a house in Pasadena, CA. Depending on the amount of jackpot prize, I might buy some commercial properties. If I won the exact same amount that Goegia couple won, I would definitely buy some commercial properties and put the rest of them into the nestegg that gives me steady flow of incomes. 

                   Then I would contact some high-class matchmaking agencies in West LA and look for my future hot wife. :) I like blondes and bruenettes. :D But I don't think I can help anyone else.

                      I will let the bank "deal with" it all, and deal with paying me a crap load of interest.

                            You might be confusing the US with the USSR because the only portion of our money that belongs to all the people is what we pay in taxes.

                            One of the reasons the wall came down was because people didn't want to be told how to spend their money. It's really a simple concept, it's none of my business how you spend your money and it's none of your business how I spend mine.
