The First 5 Things You Should Do If You Win The PCH Sweepstakes

A lot of people enter the PCH sweepstakes. If you do you have a chance to win. It is best to have a plan ahead of time. Then you will know what you should do and won’t be as overwhelmed especially if you have a lot of people asking for your money.

1. Figure out taxes. When you win a cash price you need to be aware of taxes and where your money is going to go. You won’t be able to take home everything that you won. Knowing this ahead of time will help.

2. Decide where your money is going to go after you win. Figure out what you want to buy and who you want to give money to. Don’t respond to people who come to see you that you have not heard from for a while. They probably just want money.

What Would You Pay First?

3. Invest. Make sure you are investing some of your money. You don’t want to win this price only to become broke down the road. You need a backup plan and you want to invest in your future. This is the best time to work on building up your wealth.

4. Buy something nice. Make sure to buy something nice for yourself that you couldn’t otherwise afford. You don’t want to spend all of your money on it but it would be nice to reward yourself. Enjoy your new toy and have fun with it.

5. Remember to stay humble. You don’t want to change who you are just because you won some money. Try to remember what it was like before you won and let your family know you want to stay who you are. If you find yourself feeling selfish, try to take a step back so you can get back to being the person you once were.

Publishers Clearing House – But one thing I think We all want to get done right away are those build up Bills! Those that we have to pay every month, those with high rate interest like rent bills, mortgage bills, loan payment bills, student loan bills, credit cards with high interest and the list goes on and on! STOP! Working to pay to pay to pay are bills…

When it comes to make the right decisions or choices on financial situation, we’re sometime lost in what we should do or pay first. Is it the right thing to do? What should I do with my money? This is the time when you need the advice of a professional. Despite what you might read elsewhere about managing your own finances, it is often a good idea to get some help. While some may call themselves a “financial advisor”, others may be a “financial planner”, “investment advisor” or “financial consultant”, to name just a few. The Financial Planner will help you understand your financial goals and needs, so you can take the right decisions. Good Luck!

    I have read the first 5 things you should if you win, and almost the same what I was thinking if I’m dreaming that I won. For real I wish I would be given a chance to be the next lucky winnner, I really need it not just for me but for someone that really dearest to my heart and gave me a chance to live in this world and that’s my 85 years old mom and never see her for 10 long years. I’ve been praying that one day I will get to see her if I won a big money just enough for our daily life and for my plane ticket to see my mom in El Paso, Tx. If I win I will follow the first 5 things to do as my guidelines at least I have al the idea what to do and where to start and use the money properly and not going back broke again. Thanks a lot….

  34. Anna Crawford says:

    OK, here goes! I enter often, and dream a lot! I really enjoy shopping with you! Winning big would mean could shop with you without the limits I now have!
    I would not want a huge house. There are several improvements we would have added to this one! We are in a perfect, peaceful area that is very convenient. We would have someone to keep the yard beautiful with loads of flowers. I have advanced glaucoma, and the prognosis is blindness, thus, the wishes for lots of beautiful flowers! I am thankful they will probably keep making advances, and hopefully I will have some vision as ling as I live!
    We have been blessed with three children and 2 wonderful Grandkids! We would be able to do so much to make life easier for them. They are all Christians, working, and would be very grateful and sensible.
    When we were younger, we were foster parents to newborns, and also some young children when needed. Through one of the Churches, we would want to establish a home again for babies and young children so they could have the love and safety they all deserve. Oh, that would be so wonderful to be able to go anytime we wished, to rock, cuddle, and make sure they sure all were safe, and well cared for! As you can tell, we do dream BIG! Thank you for the wonderful dreams!
