What would be the first thing you would do if you won 1m

Post by depman » Thu Oct 16, 2003 5:30 pm

If I won a million the first thing I would probably do is buy a sports car probably like every other bloke
then a hol
and then a nice house
and then shop till you drop :D
So what would you do? :P

Pay for the rest of my education and make sure that I had enough in my bank account to live for three years. Then I'd invest the rest and live off the interest. That way, I could either retire early and have a great time in my old age, or I'd have a big inheritance to pass down to...whoever! I'm not a material person at all...so I doubt I'd buy any big purchases.

The wait for that perfect someone may be long and painful, but the payoff lasts even longer, and is the most painless thing in the world.

Wow 1 million quid!

What wouldn't you do????

There's this cool house in the town where I live and I have always loved it soooo much! I'd walk right up to their door and offer them whatever they want for it.

I'd see all my family all right.

I'd book loadsa holidays in the sun.

Oh and before I forget I'd most definitely quit my job!!!!!!!

Ohh...I'd buy myself a big house in the countryside, a nice sports car, and a horse and stables. And with the rest...Would give half to my mum and dad as they would deserve it, and go on a major shopping spree!!

To be honest a big house doesnt appeal to me.
I think a nice three bedroom bunglow somewhere beautiful would do me. Oh but it must have a heated pool attatched.
I would buy a nice (not flashy) car like a KA and give some money to my family.
I would also give some money to cancer research as people close to me have suffered or died of cancer.
Of course a shopping spree would be in order :P

I would set myself up in life. Get myself a decent car (even though I'm underage to drive). Buy some big things, probably book a holiday with my friends and family. AND THEN go shopping!!! After that I would probably just save the rest. You see I've got it all planned out just in case I do win! Hehe
When you reach for the stars, you may not quite get them, but you won't come up with a handful of mud either.

Just remember to keep smiling!

i would buy a house cos i hate mine. Not a big flashy one i would like to build one exactly how i want. i would also buy a car cos i only have a little saxo and it is too tiny to have all the kids i would have if i was rich.
Doesn't really matter what the eye is seeing
cos i'm in love with the inner being
