    It's reported that a ticket in the UK has won £93 million on the European Lottery (Lotto).

    Payoff debts for the family. Travel, retire, go to school, have cool pets, buy dream house, drive fast cars...93 million can go a long ways.

    Oh and somewhere in that mix, start a family with my hubby.

    Very similar. I spend a dollar a day on lotto just so that when I'm having trouble falling asleep I can fantasize about what I would do. Before I do anything, I would invest in a low risk portfolio to guarantee lifelong income. Then I would start spending. Here's how my list goes.
    1 pay off debt
    2 put aside $ to pay for sons education
    3 pay for my dad to have a full time aide
    4 a new house
    5 a vacation home
    6 travel
    7 a boat
    8 recreation like new bicycles and kayaks
    9 dinners out.
    10 and on and on and on

    The boyfriend and I are in a stage where we're just having fun, getting the work that we can, living simply, and not worrying about it. Winning a lot of money right now would, oddly enough, sort of spoil it. I think we would put most of it away for when we "grow up." But I would buy a Corvette.

    Yes always best to store money for the future. But also to live in the now
