  1. Jay:

    I would put it in the bank, otherwise, business as usual.

  2. anon:

    The normal. Need to finish all of my finals before I do anything with it. Maybe a short trip to the bank and a frantic call to my parents is all.

  3. Bryan:

    invest and do a small crazy thing or vacation. definitely not blow it all tho

  4. Leila:

    stop worrying about spending money on food. i feel foolish for worrying about whether i should buy fruit or meat, since my body needs it. but it’s just so expensive and i don’t really have the money right now. at least if i had $1,00,000 then i could just buy the food without worrying that i would need the money for something else.

  5. Aaron:

    I would sign up for some more classes over the summer! But other than that, I would just go on about my life like usual.

  6. Heather:

    I would quit my job. I would look for a new one soon, but with that much money I wouldn’t have to stay where I’m unhappy. I would pay off my car, but otherwise live life pretty normally, though a bit more comfortably (be able to completely pay all bills, buy groceries, etc.)

  7. SarahDylan:

    I would keep enough to keep me through university, and the rest would go to Amigos and Stop the Traffik. I am passionate about the cessation of human trafficking and Uganda is a country that, since my visit, I have a keen interest in aiding.

    I wouldn’t save much for after university though. I would already be without debt, so I don’t see why I should have any other help. I would rather be in the same position as everybody else and face the same challenges. Life is dull without challenges.

  8. Cassandra:

    I’d pay for my parents’ divorce and get the hell out of this shit hole I live in. Then, put whatever’s left into the bank so I can spend it on a good school and show my asshole father that I’m not stupid and can do something successful with my life unlike him.

  9. I’d pay off all my debts, put the rest in the bank, and find work or some form of artistry that makes me happiest. And then I’d try and invest that money and try to pay-it-forward and make someone else happy and successful.

  10. Jessica:

    Get myself help. I need it, bad. Then buy a few things that I want, and save the rest for college.

  11. Maya:

    nothing. or.. I would order a ticket around the world.

  12. Cheetah:

    I’m still in high school, so plenty of things that I want to do are limited because of my parents, so I would use it to do and buy more things that I want. I would probably save most of it, though.

  13. Heather:

    I’d give half to my mother no questions. So that she could try to live more comfortably and do something good with it, whatever it was. She deserves it.

    I’d take about 2,000 out of the bank for myself to rent an apartment with a friend and put away the rest in the bank…I’d be happy to live off the damn interest for a long while. I’d still want to get a job though and keep myself busy…otherwise I would try to keep about my life as normally as possible. Ah, and also pay for schooling so I could get an education for myself. <3 I really, really want one of those.

  14. i would buy a house on the West Coast and then we could afford to live there…

  15. Wes:

    Be more philanthropic

  16. Riddle:

    I would by my lunch at school ^_^

  17. Jessica:

    Honestly, I have no idea. I feel like at this point in time I would just have to try and focus on school and get through my finals next week, and then figure out what to do with the money after that. But at the same time, if this were to actually happen.. I feel like that would never actually happen.

  18. Rachel:

    Examine different charities to donate it to.

  19. Anonymous10:

    Maybe nothing differently, would still be doing my normal routine. I don’t know how I’d exactly feel if I won that amount of money. Get the money safely into my bank account first. Let the reality sink in. Once ready, I’ll start planning what to do with the newly acquired winning. Maybe first on the list is to buy-out my ex-husband’s share of the house, then sell the house and move on to a new place. Pay off my parent’s debts. Give my sister a deposit for a bigger house or maybe pay it off (if not much). Put in for my other 2 sister’s college fund. Help my two aunts for any financial help they need. The rest will be saved and re-evaluate my future plans.
    @Jessica – Dear, if you need help badly, please start now. I don’t know what sort of help you’re in need of. If it’s financial, then I guess 1M would solve it but if anything else, there are other ways of seeking help or solving your problem that needn’t cost an extravagant amount of money.

  20. Susan:

    Share more.

  21. Nick:

    Nothing much. I’ll put it in the bank .

  22. Amy:

    Finally do what I want to do with my life…I would want the freedom to make my own career choices and do what I love, rather than having to worry about salary. I would start my own business, buy some cute clothes, and then save the rest so I can live comfortably when I’m old. And I might go on a nice little vacation.

  23. Michele:

    I would spend less money and I would not drink.

  24. rebecca:

    Nothing. I would save it until I found the person I wanted to spend the rest of my life with, then use it on frequent vacations (I have a list of the 100 places I want to visit before I die(: ).

  25. Erica:

    First, I would buy a new car because I dseperately need one. Next, pay off my college loans. Then I would give both of my brothers $ for their weddings (both are getting married in the next 10 months. I would put the rest in the back.

  26. Roberto:

    Nothing. Go on as usual and spend it slowly.

  27. L.:

    Pay my parents’ debts and bills, as a thanks for their love, care and support over the years. Buy my dad the new car he wants so bad, buy my mum all the books she would want to read. Go on a weekend trip to the beach with my parents, brother and boyfriend.

    My own life wouldn’t change that much, the things I need are not to be acquired by money, but by hard work. So tomorrow I’d be doing pretty much the same as I am doing today; work my butt off to get some acceptable grades on my finals.

  28. anon:

    Make it rain on the streets 🙂

  29. anon:

    Buy my mama something that shows her how much I appreciate how much she’s sacraficed for me.
    Put it in the bank for college.

  30. Oana:

    Go back home and give it to my mom for safe keeping (best bank in the world)

  31. Marisol:

    I would up and move to somewhere.

  32. Laurel:

    Quit my terrible job. The money could definitely hold me over until I got a new one. Then I’d take my boyfriend out to pay him back for everything he’s done for me. Other than that, business as usual.

  33. anonymous:

    i’d buy me and courtney each a poptart and a lemonade

  34. wizz:

    rachel, who are you kidding?

  35. Alaska:

    I would go online and buy a bunch of IKEA furniture (especially bookcases) and I would (on the Internet) order lots and lots of books. Then I would continue my day as planned, use the Internet to attempt to distract myself from my own current emotional pain. I need a bit more time to recover. Time alone.

  36. Gina:

    Buy a house.

  37. Alex:

    Buy more Christmas gifts for people lol 🙂

  38. Joey:

    buy a car, get my friends front bumper replaced, give money to my work (were not doing so great right now) and put the rest in the bank
