Oh, yeah....to actually be ON topic :)
I would pay off all my debt ($80K, whew, that's a heavy load),
and buy myself a beautiful house on a cul-de-sac,
and take my kids to Disneyland and myself to Hawaii,
and get weekly massages;
and help my family.
And I would feel very grateful and blessed. :bowdown
I would be shocked, I would invest, definitely, put it all in the bank, at my age I don't need 1 mill
I'd pay off all my bills, go on a HUGE shopping spree, donate a lot of it to my parish, and save the rest.
True story: Years ago when I worked for a newspaper, a elderly local woman won $100,000 from a Readers Digest sweepstakes. I went out to interview her and took a photo of her on the front porch of her mobile home holding the oversized $100,000 check.

Honestly, money is wasted on some people!
ARG, funny you posted this, I was just thinking of the same thing the other day.
Unfortunately, a million dollars isn't so much anymore. I'd tithe, pay off debt, buy a great house and furnish it, get a new van and something for the 15 year old to drive next year. I'd make sure my parent's bills were all taken care of and move them into a newer house if they wished. I'd invest most of it, and open an antique store. I'd definitely quit work!
Amen to that one.

I would pay off debts. Buy each of my kids a new car (well, put money away for my 13 year old's :D). Donate a big chunk to my local SPCA. Move. Do something great for someone without them knowing it (kind of like on pay it forward) And if there is anything left, put it away. But like Bumpkin said, a mill doesn't go all that far anymore sadly enough, but I'll take it anyway :biglove
Speaking of a million not being much money anymore, isn't it funny how some folks won't buy a lottery ticket if the pot is under $5 million?
First I'd pay off my student loans and my car. Then I'd probably give some to my brothers and sister for school as well. I'd probably give my parents a couple of hundred large just for putting up with me. I'd take a couple of trips I'd like to take, buy a few small things and invest the rest.
I will everything I don't have currently
1. New handphone
2. New wardrobe
3. New shoes
4. New bags
6. New furnishings
First priority: a new car! I am so sick and tired of using our awful public transport system.
Next would be every computer gadget I want. The things you can do with around 9,000 US dollars... :drool
I would buy the bigger newer house down the street because I like my subdivison and school but I want a bigger house.
I would buy a cottage on a lake.
I would put money away for the kids for college
I would take a trip to disney world (with my family)
I would give my parents some money.
