    We live in a run-down mobile home. The central air unit gave out years ago so we have window units situated throughout to keep cool.
    The floors are sagging in places because of numerous water leaks. Whenever one leak gets fixed and sub-floor is replaced, another leak appears.
    My wife drives a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan with almost 300,000 miles on it. The AC, heater, defroster and radio don't work. My Jeep is in a bad way too. Turn signals quit working and the throttle body is shot.
    This couldn't have come at a better time.

    No offense taken at all. Degrade it all you want

    Our plans are this:
    New house - we want to keep it at or under $225,000. Nice older home on some acres would do nicely.
    New Chevy Silverado 1500 crew cab with the 5.3 V-8, about 37 grand.
    New toy hauler to haul my '18 Triumph Bonneville T120 and a '70 vintage Bonneville I plan to buy. I already have the T120.
    Pay off my daughters car and give her some cash. I'm the co-signer on the car so it helps us both.
    Sock some money away for some well deserved trips and easy livin', debt free.

    You know, that's nice. My son and I, when he was younger, used to play "what would you do if you won a million dollars in the lottery?" I don't recall what I said I'd do.

    Right now, move (my house needs $ porch repair) to a bump better. Get a new used car. I'm pretty skeptical about spending anything past that point: I've got all the shirts and underwear I need.

    Yes, go slow. They will withhold taxes. Don't forget to put enough away for years and years and years of future property taxes. Taxes - can't live with them, can't live without them.

    If you did win I hope you decide to keep quite about it. Lawyers, tax consultants, and tax shelters would be a good way to go. A large win can turn you life upside down if you're not careful. People could be coming out of the woodwork with a million sob stories. Enjoy your hobbies!!!

    Good on you! Put that money in circulation and enjoy it! Don't forget, there will be a few long lost relatives you didn't know you had, showing up at your doorstep for a little handout. Be very wary of them!

    Congratulations on the win. That is fantastic and the best part is there is no cleaning or ID of the artifact needed.

    Once you both sign the back it can't be redeemed by anyone else. Permanent ink, not that water-based gel crap.

    Not to go on and on... I think we all have basically voiced opinions on how you should spend YOUR money... heh.

    So I will leave you with a couple of quote bones that you can choose to chew on or not.

    "A fool and their money soon part ways"

    "easy come easy go".

    "Buy what you need and not what you want".

    Your odds of being in this same position again just went through the roof...
    And many things that you lived without this long... chances are you can live without most.

    O how I have seen windfalls become debt simply because the reins were held in foolish hands.... or held too loosely...

    Remember this final thought...

    One day IT WILL be gone... and you will at that point perhaps / wish you had done it differently if you do not think EVERY move through completely.

    Be solid... and ride smart.
