What to do when you win the lottery
What to do when you win the lottery

The Powerball’s up to $235 million, the lump sum is around $130 million, after taxes, you’ll probably get $100 million. So what do you do with the money?

My advice is to spend $1 million of it right away – splurge! Here are some things you can splurge on:

The Royal Penthouse Suite at Hotel President Wilson in Geneva is $65,000 – for $1 million, you can spend 15 nights! OR, you can spend 70 years at a Motel 6 in Detroit, Mich. They both have an in-room Jacuzzi, btw.

Beats by Dr. Dre can be pricey – $300 each. There is a pair bedazzled with 114 carats of diamonds that costs a flat $1 million. OR, you can buy 333,333 Labtec Earphones (earbuds) and never wear the same pair twice.

How about a flat screen TV? Panasonic makes a 152-inch TV for $500,000, so you can buy two. OR, how about a TV for every room in your house? 2,857 Westinghouse 46-inch HDTV costs will run you the same price.

167,504 plain black Hanes T-shirts
250,00 pounds of mushrooms
288,184 bottles of Andre Brut champagne
4,026,845 pudding cups

It doesn’t matter WHAT you buy… just splurge a little and get it out of your system. That’s my advice, anyway.
