If you won millions how would you spend it? Would you...share with friends and family? Remain anonymous? Go on a hogwild spending spree? All of the above? I would have a block party but made sure nobody knew I was the one that won. I'm sure it would depend on how many millions after taxes but just for shiggles...5 million after taxes. I have heard some crazy ideas from ppl I know.

Pay off the small debt that I have, take car of family, and TRUE friends, invest SOME. At just $5 mil, though, I would continue life as normal.

Depends on how much I won would decide whether I move or not. Business as usual in the Skeet household. First thing I would get before claiming money: getting a lawyer.

Buy lots of gold (and lead, if you know what I mean...)

This, not to mention remaining anonymous.

Ranch in the Hill Country. Help family and select friends. Invest. Nothing crazy.

Not one soul would know. I am surprised with the number of family members that "borrow" but never pay back!

I'd donate half of it, buy some gold with some of it, create a trust for my kids, then move my whole family to an island.

Living a nice comfortable life would be ideal. Nothing too fancy. I have a list of "True" friends and family I'd share with. Relatives I only see for funerals, weddings, or once every 10 years or so don't count, sorry to say. I like the thought of investing in gold too.
