So you have to chose one or the other and that's all the million can go into. Experiences would be like travelling, extreme sports/going to concerts. Possessions would be like buying a house/car/clothes.

If I HAD to choose between these two, it would be possessions, but not necessarily for myself. For myself would be a car big enough to fit my family and friends of my kids. Someone stole my lawnmower, so I need a new one. I would fix things in my house then sell it to move to a better/safer location. Not that my house is in an unsafe location, but things have changed around here and thefts are occurring more. Over the last 8 years or so, all of my kids bikes have been stolen, as well as a lawnmower, an edger, a welding machine, an air compressor, a four wheeler, etc. Everything was locked up, but stolen anyway. A couple of months ago, my friend's car was broken into while in my driveway. Anyway, I would also buy a car for my daughter. I'm a saver, so spending money is hard for me. Lol. My mom has said that she has never seen someone literally look pained when spending money. Haha! I didn't realize it was like that, but I am pretty tight with money and i rarely spend money on myself unless it's a necessity. I would prefer to invest a good portion of this theoretical million for the future of myself and my kids. My son has a life-threatening medical condition, so he will need to continue paying for supplies for the rest of his life. He also can't get life insurance and medical insurance/deductibles will be pricey. I don't want him to have to work just to stay alive. In the meantime, money would be set aside to pay for his supplies throughout his childhood and while he is under my protection and care. I would also buy each of my parents a new vehicle. My dad has always bought my mom a new vehicle and taken her hand-me-downs. That was his choice. Her van is currently 15 years old and is starting to have some issues. They usually never go more than 5 years without a new vehicle, but life has gotten in the way. They are great parents and deserve something for everything they have done for me, my siblings and their grandkids. My dad is 64 years old, but he doesn't believe in watching women sttuggle or do "man's work". I'm okay with doing what I have to do and usually don't even tell him when something goes wrong, but it makes him feel good to come edge my lawn, change my lightbulbs and change my a/c filter, so I say nothing. He also chooses to take me to doctor/hospital visits for the kids. I want to do something for my dad in return. My mom takes care of my disabled grandmother, takes care of her family and works; she deserves good too.1

A millions dollars isn't all that much considering.
But I've always wanted to fund/build a home/shelter
to house orphans and homeless people.
But at the same time, I do enjoy
traveling, and experiencing all the
amazing sights, the world has to offer.1
