So, as the title says... if you won 20million what would you do with it?

I would pay off my brother's house and my parent's house. Give them each a mill.
Pay off all of my own debts and buy this farm I used to work at. Live in the cottage on the property that's amazingly hidden in the back and backs onto a river. Demolish the house on the property and put a 10 car garage there instead with a hoist for my husband. then turn the farm into an adoption farm for horses. Go to the slaughter auctions and bring back what I could.
I'd give each of my husbands side a mill.
I'd give 500,000 to my step daughter, two nieces and one nephew. But I'd put it in a saving account to gain interest seen as the oldest is 6. I'd want them to go through school and get some form of education after highschool or start their own business before I gave it to them. I don't want them becoming lazy bums and doing nothing with there life cuz it was all handed to them. Doesn't mean I wouldn't help them out along the way but I'd want them to live up to their full potential. I wouldn't even tell them the money is there till they were like 30.
I'd donate 1mill each to a couple health charities like the heart and stroke foundation and cancer foundations or sick kids hospitals or something. Then another mill to an animal rescue society. And continue donating yearly.

As for toys... I'd get a CTS 4 for me, G8 for my husband, get the LS all fixed up all purdy, restore my trans am, make rocket a 9 second base model G5, a truck for the farm and a horse trailer.

I think that's about it. Now only if I could win the lottery lol

What would you guys do? $20 mill budget.

Buy a house, a decent house. Maybe a 800,000 house.
Buy a Ford f-150 harley davidson edition
Buy a trailblazer SS for my girlfriend
Buy a corvette ZR-1 for me.
Buy a nice boat
New guitar and amp
Pay off my parents house and all they're credit car debts and whatnot.
Then go on and live my life, i honestly dont think i would quit my job, and id finish college. And Get married in like 3 years and start a family.

Oh and go on the biggest vacation of my life! id take a month off and go to some carribean islands or something.

If it wasn't for the fact that I'd have my own farm to take care of, I wouldn't quit my job either. I love my job. I've been here for 3.5yrs. Wish it paid more but passion/sanity is more important to me then money.

pay off my debts, then those of my parents and in-laws. Buy some land and build a retirement home for Ford Aspires, complete with an on-call mechanic for pulling parts, LOL. I'd also buy an old hearse and fix it up.

I'd keep my job though, just to have something to do.

If I had 20 million dollars the first thing I would do is pay off all my bills and buy myself a house, nothing really big. 4 bed, 3 bath and 2 car garage. Then I would help out my immediate family with bills and paying off there homes. I would most certainly have to continue working or start my own business because I would go crazy sitting around the house plus you have to keep money coming it or you will be broke before you know it. Then I would have to find the car I have always wanted and that is a 1998 Toyota Supra, bone stock so I can have it modified the way I want it. That would be my weekend car. Then just live my life one day at a time.

Remember if you save some of this cash even if it's only a mill most people can comfortably live off just the interest alone a year. Good to hear most people would keep there jobs though. That's why I'd want a rescue farm. I work at a horse farm now and love it. If I could just walk out my door and do my job though that would be even more badass lol.

Give 50-100K to every member of the fam and my best friends, cept for my little cousin I'd put it in the bank for him till hes 20.

I'd buy myself a medium/ decent sized house, with a nice amount of property and have a 10 car garage built with a lift in one of the bays and a mini mechanics haven. As for cars, I'd buy every generation of the Camaro, a Vette ZR-1, Skyline, Eleanor Mustang in the highest trim, a mint condition Supra TT and Fairlady 300ZX TT.

I'd have a small machine shop lab built in a separate little building next to the house having a CNC/ lathe/ drill press and all the good stuff for making my own custom parts.

On my property, I'd build my own little dirtbike track and host races every weekend. I wouldn't mind a little shifter kart track too.

The rest I'd put in savings, and probably invest with it.

Just to add, I hope if any of you that are parents make it big- I hope you don't give your kids everything they want and make them spoiled brats. Now I go to a college where kids drive new 2010 SS Camaros and Benzes- the works. Spoon fed ass***** is what they are, too bad they never learned the meaning of hard work before getting a butt load of cash getting dumped on them. I'm fortunate for growing up relatively poor, I'm grateful I've learned the meaning of hard work and money- and will pass that on to my own kids.

Tom.

I agree, hence why any of the kids wouldn't be getting any of it till they did something with themselves.

well first off, i would not tell a soul about the money when i got it. also, i would get it all in cash. I would buy a foreclosed house for about 30k and make it a stash house for all my money. the security on that house is prolly going to cost me another 10k-15k. after that, i would purchase 4-5 houses near the university and then just rent them out to college kids. I would give my parents a mil and tell em were even. prolly give my brothers 500k each. my cousins 250k each and same wit my aunts/uncles. I would pay off all my credit card debt and then buy a buncha shit on credit and pay it back that month so i could get my credit back up.

after all that was taken care of, i would prolly buy a badass house ($500,000 around here) in the foothills and fill it with some pretty nice stuff. definitely do everything i want to, to the balt. and then pick up a brand new benz as my new whip, as well as a new truck, prolly just a 2500 or something just to have.

then, i would prolly invest in a business, and save the rest!

20 mil is A LOT! lol
