How should I prioritize inherited money?

I am 71 years old and recently received $300,000. Should I pay off my house, credit cards, or hide money in a CD for my kids? I'm not sure which comes first.

In all likelihood, you'll want to pay off the credit cards first. Why? They probably charge you a hefty amount of interest on outstanding balances.
