Good luck to all. I will be drawing almost last minute as I have to do some astrological consulting before I can play. (LMAO).
No, seriously I have to crunch numbers and haven't done that for MM. Also, I'm hoping my rudimentary picks for the Pick 6 drawing (NJ) at leasts pays me $100 so I can blow that on MM. LOL
Finally that first thing I would do if I ever won so much as $250k or more would be to pay off my mortgage (or put the whole thing after taxes toward my mortgage if taxes take nice chunk). No buying new stuff, just clearing out any and all debt. Second thing would be to pay off my car. I couldn't tell you what I would buy but I know I would live as frugally as possible. Plus I would try to get my own health insurance if I did quit my job, but would definitely do that after COBRA.
Then I would pretty much go back to living a cash-only lifestyle, but with the exception of using credit (once in awhile) like renting a car or something.
