I would give a hell of a lot of attitude at work!! Not sure if I would quit or not.
I would give my sisters 5 mill each, and my parents.
Shout the family a trip to Disneyland. Probably economy because I would still be a tight @rse!
I would still shop at Aldi and hit up the specials at other shops.
But I would hire a cleaner for sure.
I wouldn't change my house or car. But I would buy the kids a house each for when they're older.

Did you see the US one got up to $US900 million.
I can't even think about that much money!

See a financial planner!!!
Would only tell immediate family (parents, sister).
Would drop to casual or do part-time contracts at work (I worked too bloody hard for my degree/job just to throw it away).
Would buy a modest sized unit or townhouse (it's all I need).
Plan an awesome holiday.
Give enough to my parents so that they can retire comfortably and be able to travel.
Give a bit to a charity (unsure of which one).
Put the rest away.

Tell dh. Tell my mum and grandad and fil. Then pay off all debts for those people and us, buy us a house, buy fil a house and give him a large amount so he can do as he pleases (god knows the man deserves it). Set aside some for our kids future. Go on a holiday. Spoil ourselves a bit. Buy dh his dream car to fix up like he has always wanted. Get a boob job and my nose fixed.
Most of all though I would want to make sure our families are taken care of.

You have just won $50 million....
tell dh and just sit on the news for a while to let it sink in.
prob pay the house off immediately. ditto the car loan.
dh has always maintained he'd continue to work. I'd definitely quit my job though (at least I think I would??)
start researching vacation homes in the Cayman Islands as its a spot we both love and holds many memories for us (got engaged there then married in the exact same spot 2 years later).
prob buy a second car.
probably start looking for a new house. nothing wrong with ours but if you've got the cash, why wouldn't you upgrade.
keep this joint as a rental property or just as a crash pad for family/friends wanting to visit from overseas/interstate.
look at buying a business to run myself or starting one I'm passionate about.
invest the rest and live off the passive income!

I kept thinking about it and I don't think I could be happy with our new lifestyle if our close friends and family didn't benefit from it too.
I read about a little experiment. They gave $20 to people. People on group A could spend the money on themselves. Group B had to spend it on others.
At the end of the day they measured happiness. You guessed it, group B was the happier group!
So I'd buy a house, enough bedrooms for all kids in the suburb we're in now but not a stupid mansion, I'd put some aside for extra (trips!!) then I'd divide whatever is left between all our loved one. And organise a huge party to celebrate the big windfall!!

I would ring DH scream at him over the phone to the point he tells me to repeat myself a few times.
I wouldn't want to tell anyone.
I would buy a house for us. Buy a house for my mum.
Give a mil to my sisters and inlaws.
Go on a holiday through europe. Buy a holiday house for us in Scotland so we can use it when visiting inlaws.
Put money in accounts for kids when they turned 21.
Get the best therapy and specialists available for the boys.
Donate a large sum to the boys old early intervention service.
Then probably put money away for retirement.
Hire a cleaner once a month.
Then buy everything little thing I want.
DH would still work. I would probably be able to study anything. Same with DH.
