If you won the Lottery what would you do? If you suddenly became rich, what would be the very first thing you would do with all of your new money? These are questions a lot of us probably ask ourselves. These aren't issues for the richest people in the world, but for us common-folk... we can dream, can't we? Of course we can. We're allowed to dream about paying off all of our debts. Buy a big new house. Maybe buying our parents a new house. Maybe investing our newfound wealth and helping families in need.

Anyway this is a list about what you think you would do if you won the lottery or if you out of nowhere became super wealthy. 

Don't see what you would do with all that cold hard cash on the list? add it! And while you're at it vote up your favorite things on the list (the things you'd be most likely to do if you were rich).
