Stimulus Package

What are you going to do with the money you get from the "Stimulus Package"?

I know that the government wants me to go and buy a bunch of junk from the stores to help stimulate the economy but for me, I want to do something really really boring with our money. I want to pay off debt. I know, it is not glamorous, it is not exciting, it isn't even interesting and I am probably turning off a plethora of readers by even mentioning it.

We have a couple of other options. We have talked about maybe using it for a family vacation. Maybe using it for a remodel of the bathroom that somehow didn't get finished. Or, just tuck it away for a rainy day and when the fuel prices are lower and take a long drive across the USA to visit some Church Historical sites.

Well, I'm not sure what we will do yet but that money is burning a hole in our checking account and we need to decide what we are going to do with it before we spend it all on Twinkies and Ding Dongs.

MIke used ours already to buy me my new MOthers Day camera. I can't complain.

Do you want to walk the Martin's cove with me and my family this summer?

I'm not sure. We bought a new computer and Photoshop.

I would go for the twinkie theory if they were fat and sugar free.

I love the idea of paying off debt. There is no buyers remorse from that and it eases the money burdons!! Go do it!! as Suzi Orman would say. MOM
