Even if I won a small Powerball prize like 200,000 bucks I would still go do a shopping spree for a whole week.

 

clothes

groceries

2 or 3 PSPs. Abuse the crap out of one of the PSPs and let my nephews play with it LOL

donate a few bucks to my church or whatever like 20 bucks for offering

pay off the darn school loan bills

go to Scheels and buy a sword or something LOL

    I think what you would do depends on your stage in life or your age. I would not go crazy buying stuff. I would go on a little vacation and travel.

    Play to win!

      Roll Eyes  personally anyone still playing with swords and wasting money on any one of the dozen game consoles needs to ..............

      personally if I had the spare 200k to blow through I'd could find an infinite number of ways to put it to good use Twitch

        How about the first thing you do is stop eating dogs?

        That would be a nice gesture.

            hubby and i have 'plans' for every larger prize.

             

            with 200K, we would set more than half aside, use the rest to buy new furniture (2 kids and the animals have effectively ruined most of our stuff LOL), hubby wants new tools, get new appliances (ours are just old and outdated), let the kids have a mini shopping spree... just enjoy our 'spending money' and save the rest!

              urrutiap,

              You need to win $200,00 to give 20 bucks as an offering?

              Scared

              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

              Lep

              There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                  The first thing I would do is pay my tithes.

                  Set aside $100 thousand, just to make sure I have enough to pay taxes on this win.

                  Here in TX taxes will be taken out once you hit a million dollars. (I think)

                  I would then use the remaining $80 thousand to pay down certain bills and of course spend on the kiddies and grand kiddies.

                  Anything left goes into my gambling fund for my next jackpot win.

                            I don't go shopping now so I guess the answer's no. Cept fer whiskey, I hate shopping. I put it right up there with talking on the phone. I hate phones.

                            Truth be known, I don't really like being around Homo Sapiens' that much.

                            That's why I stay way back up in here in the backwoods. Very few Homo Sapiens' up in here.

                              Watch out where you go shopping, buddy.

                              A lot of stores carry a lot of that junk they make in China that doesn't work and falls apart right away.

                              Always check the label. If it says Made in China, you know for sure it's junk.

                              No need to thank me, I'm just glad I caught you before you bought any of that horrendous crap they make over there.

                              We should be boycotting them anyway until they get out of Tibet and let the Dalai Lama come home.

                              Bastages.
