400 Million Dollars

I have a confession to make…yesterday i entered into a work pool to purchase lottery tickets for the powerball.  And of course we didn’t win.  But i thought i would imagine…what would i do with 400Million dollars?

And of course winning the lottery is not always what it’s cracked up to be because most lottery winners are not always careful with their money.  But of course i would be.  400Million dollars is soooooooooo much money…i would have to be careful with it.

That amount of money is just so huge in number…i can’t even imagine where to begin!  But i can try….

I would take the lump sum amount first and foremost.  I would quit my job right away.  I would become a stay at home mom.  I would of course give a portion of the money to my church.

I would save a whole bunch of the money…of course.  I would go shopping, travel and just have a good ol’ time!

Here’s a few lottery winners who had a ball with their winnings. Oh i can dream.

Question of the Day: What would you do with your lottery winnings?

  1. Sorry you didn’t win! I almost don’t like to even think about it because it’s pretty much not happening but I’d be quitting my job ASAP too.

  2. Yes, that is a lot of money! If I won, I’d definitely launch a nonprofit side to YUMMommy, move to one of my dream cities and of course set aside money for my children’s college fund and set up a money market account.

    That $400 million was suppose to be mine! 😉 I would also quit my job right away and we would build our dream house. I haven’t thought much past that though. 🙂

    That’s just way too much money. Nobody needs that much money ever.
    I would totally quit my job, first and foremost :). Then only God knows 🙂

    I don’t even want 400 million the problems that will come with even winning 10 million is not worth it. All I require is a million I can turn that million into more and have less problems because I will be working hard to make the money and not having it already sitting there for people to beg for.

    I’ve done the lottery pool at work too… needless to say, I didn’t win, lol. But Thanking GOD would be the first step, quitting my job will follow, of course I’d pay off my debt, and ask God to order my steps… but I most certainly will NOT pull an MC Hammer.

    My husband enters work pools, too! I wish they would break these down into “smaller” amounts so that more people could win. I would definitely use some of my winnings to travel.

    I’d get a lawyer, a financial advisor and the fun would begin. Give a portion to the church, pay off student loans and mortgages for our immediate family members. Buy our dream home and fill it with little people. Give to the organizations nearest to our hearts. And see the world! With our children! And start a non profit – the social services system in our country is seriously overwhelmed trying to care for the children who need it. Our non profit would have a part in helping. And we’d give a very generous donation to TSU. (I spent lots of time thinking about this while I was out of work!! 🙂

    I cant even get my head around that amount. investing it i suppose makes alot of sense. And i wouldnt want my name published, imagine the “friends” that come from nowhere with that kinda money. I think Kita is right, thats just way too much.

    First off, paying all the student loans will probably take up a lot of the money lol. I would probably still work though, but start my own law firm and not work for someone else.
