I know someone who won a comfortable amount, but not sure.it was euromillons jackpot big. Big family and a few who would have been grabby if they knew the amount and they were mature enough to realise money could upset their relationships.

They traded up house, still worked but part time (don’t think many people were aware). Used the reason for move that they have been saving for years to upgrade, hence always being skint. I was one of those who knew, they had won something but didn’t really pry onto amount, probably why they shared it with me.

I like that when they went on holiday they let family know they were going to Spain, but kept quiet about travelling first class and class of hotel. Still really happy and seem to have kept family from finding out and creating grief. .

I would look even poorer, because I would be covered in cat hair from the 10+ kittens I would adopt.

My reservation on money. Normally, I’m not the one that care much about earning money and buying stuff, but if I were to suddenly won the lottery and gain millions? You bet your a*s that imma invest that s**t.

Slight improvement in address, like the better end of the next suburb. Otherwise, I wouldn’t do anything else to show a win.

Probably the reflected light on their face from my rings.

**My family and friends would suddenly have fantastic luck.***

My sister would win 1 of 2 *Build Your Dream House* lotteries (I’d pay the co to do 2 and have her win one).

My parents would be notified that my grandfather’s estate had $50K set aside for all his great grandchildren which was only just found and, 20y later, each is now worth about $100K.

A recall would be issued for a part on my best friend’s car, and insurance would decide a new car would be better/ cheaper. They’d give her a lump sum check.

My other friend would win a trip to see her favorite band, all expenses paid, in 3 different venues.

A few organizations I know would stop having electrical and property tax bills.

I’d have a shell company buy a specific property to prevent development happening to a 500 acre woodland.


I would go to more away games, not mentioning how I got there (via NetJets, probably), claiming a YOLO philosophy and CC travel points.

My wardrobe quality would go up, and ‘though the style wouldn’t change much, the fit would be vastly improved.

That pilates instructor whom I can never meet with would start doing house calls and decide to leave equipment in my spare room for convenience’s sake.

* I have had this “lottery list” since I was in HS. Some of the details have changed, but not too many.

I think they’ll notice when I stop complaining about work…

Owning a farm, less exposure to humans, baking my heart out for the people I love. Just the hobbies I’d like to pick up again after being stuck to surviving today’s standards.

I would have access to health care and a dentist.

Is migrating to a foreign country without any forewarning subtle enough?

Retiring at 42 after a medoicre career would be a bit of a giveaway.

I know a couple who are multi-millionaires. We’re talking full time family office staff that invests their portfolio. Their kids are out of college now.

They fly first class to Europe or Bali or Japan or South Korea or Dubai or Tahiti, spend a month there, living out of top suites in luxury hotels from one city to another, dining at Michelin starred restaurants, getting private tours to museums, exhibits, etc.

They’re just a couple who mostly grew up middle class, so they dress casually and look like a retired couple.

Lifestyle: Really the big clue would be putting a ton more time into parenting. I’d pretty much immediately flip from the weekend dad to full time SAHD(but with a maid who leaves just enough undone so I have the kids build better habits of cleaning up after themselves).

Health: Dental implants, therapy

Consumerist/luxury: Smartwool/darn tough for every pair of socks &underwear; dental implants.

Fountain pens and commissioned art(including some instruments).

I’d do nothing but art, cook, work out, and game during the day.

Probably volunteer at the boys and girls club pretty much every day-the teen room has a decent kitchen, and lots of food insecure kids. Ramen + a piece of fruit does not make for good nutrition, or good eaters. Let’s f*****g explore. And not be hungry.
