The first thing I'd do is start savings funds for the kids. Then we'd get a new house. I would put money in a CD for a European vacation when the kids are older and would spend money on a Disney vacation soon. Then I'd spend a little on new clothes and a spa day. Whatever's left (if there is any) would just go to savings for a rainy day.

Hmmmm, a $120K winning is about $70K in actual cash so I would probably pay off a couple of bills, take a trip and maybe a new car.

$120,000 wouldn't even pay off our mortgage, but I'd put it towards our mortgage, then re-fi so I could make lower payments and put more into a college fund for E.

Put a down payment on a new house, then save the rest to help with paying 2 mortgages until this one sells!

that's a good one

I would probably pay back the student loans we took out for Blair's school. Pay for preschool & childcare for August & Max for next year and put the rest in savings until Blair is done with school and has a job. If we don't need to spend any of it than we are planning a vacation in Europe.

Ummm $120,000 altho its alot...its not much IYKWIM...it wouldnt even pay off the mortgage...so we would prob put half onto the mortgage (that would 1/2 our repayments YAY!!!) use some to finsh off the house and yard...
Buy SO a new used Ute...to replace the beaten up one he drives now...
Save anything left...if any...But just lowering our mortgage repayments would be GREAT!!!
