I am a reasonably contented person so I do not think my life would change that much.

For one thing, I am already without a job other than taking care of my children so it is not as if I could quit my job.  If I were teaching full time, I think I would not like to quit completely because I found teaching to be a pretty fulfilling line of work.  I think that I would try to cut down to part-time work.

Other than that, I have no big dreams.  I might like to spend a couple months in Japan trying to immerse myself in the language and finally get fluent (I get by but am not fluent and I would like to be).  But I couldn't do that until my kids are older anyway.

This is one way that I think I know I'm happy -- there are not a lot of changes I'd make if I had a lot of money.

The first two things would be to pay off the mortgage and all the bills associated with our education and then set up a fund to pay for my three daughters education. After that I think it would be great to own a cabin some place in the Smoky Mountains.

I, too, would use some of the money to pay off mortgage debt and other debts. I would use some to travel. I would donate some to various charities like the Wounded Warrior Foundation, and I would try to use some of it to improve conditions at my school--whether it be buying some new sets of novels/books or replenishing our seriously aging computers that are for student use.

In these troubled times, saving, saving comes first to mind.  If one banks a million dollars, one can enjoy using the interest and leave the principal alone as a safety-valve. (The voices of the Depression era people are calling) Such good fortune would also demand some of the money going to a worthy cause, as well, such as giving back to the local school where I was employed for years.  A scholarship fund would be appropriate, as well.

if i had a millon dollars i would share it out. i would give some to charity some to my parents and keep some of it for myself. i would save most of the money that i would keep for myself but spend some of it on basic necessities and help pay off fees for university and stuf when i get there. Moreover , i would use the money to help really worthy causes.

If I had a million dollars, I would invest in college funds for my three daughters. Then I would pay off the bills, so my husband and I could start saving for our retirement. As educators, we are fully involved with the public school retirement system, but costs beyond that such as health insurance are a concern.

Immediately give half of it away to some good charities, then I'd put another quarter aside to take care of my parents.  With what's left, I would probably get rid of all my debts and invest a little bit for the future.  These are the things I think about, anyway, when I buy a lotto ticket for a buck - right up until the point I lose.

The scale of my life wouldn't change a whole lot, I think, but wouldn't it be wonderful to be able to give to others.  Short of paying off housing debt and paying for education, I would travel and help others.  I don't think about this particular amount very often because it's so overwhelmingly foreign to my current income status, but I often wish I had more money to give.  A million dollars would certainly allow me to do that.

A million dollars doesn't go as far as it used to. I would use it to pay off my house and my parents' house and our cars. That way, I would be more financially stable. I would also go on a vacation to England, my favorite spot. If there was any left over, I'd start a scholarship fund at my school.
