Just for fun, what would you do if you just won a million dolllars? (Seems like I like to half everything) I would first pay the taxes so I wouldn't get in trouble, down to about $500,000, then I would put half of that into a trust or money market where I couldn't spend it, down to $250,000. I'd save half of that toward my dream home, down to $125,000. I'd take 25,000 and donate to my favorite animal chariety to build habitats for the animals that so desperatly need them. Probably a complete habitat for the bears (about $20,000) and then a habitat for my favorite primate with some left over for other improvements. Down to 100,000, I'd spend 25,000 on a dream vaction, to Austrlia and Europe, then I would give hubby $25,000 to spend on himself, he'd probably buy a couple of powered parachutes for flying and a new trailer, etc. that would leave me $50,000 to go wild with! I'd probably save $25, 000 for furniture for the house and then spend the last $25,000 on a complete new wardrobe, all the purses and shoes I wanted and pay a personal trainer to whip me into shape!!!! Wow that was fun, now how can I actually get that million dollars all at once??????????
