    Thumbs up Spinoff: Whatcha going to do with your stimulus payment?

    Ok so I am really excited that May is almost here and I have tons of plans for my stimulus payment - we are going to get the full package of CS3 Suite for me (yeah me), upgrade the memory on my laptop, and buy a new lens for our digital slr for dh......and then have some pizza! LOL kidding but the kids should get something too right???? Anyways our lists of "wishes" changes but curious to see what you guys might be wishing for......

    Oh and if you are not sure when or how much you will be getting, the IRS has a whole page dedicated to it here:,00.html

    the great state of Texas!
    A NEW COMPUTER! Yes, I am very excited! I will be getting a laptop! My boys can have P.O.C. (that is the name of this computer- piece of crap) and I will have my very own laptop.

    Now I just need to decide what color to get.

    Well the money we get for having the boys we are putting into their college funds to be invested. And the rest of the money DH and I are splitting and he will probably spend it on computer parts for his new rig. And me...I'm thinking it's going to the laser hair removal plan for me. Seriously after having the boys, I'm turning into Aunt Ruth (re: Larry the Cucumber)! Course this will probably cost more than I will get so I gotta think of other ways to get some $$! I'm thinking my stamps are headed to ebay...

    Ours is spoken for...some into savings, and some to pay off a credit card. We have discussed maybe a new tv for the living room, but I'm not sure if that's in the cards.

    I didn't want to be left out, so here I am. Thanks, Pamie!

    Where do I sign up for this?

    Seriously though - what you guys talking about?

    Jacque the money hasn't come yet and if you are eligible - with all your kids you should have a chunk of change! Might want to talk to your dh tonight LOL! Look at the link in my first post for more info.....and uh yeah Mandy I am not sure I would be excited for that too - this was your first year of working - you deserve a little pampering.....

    And Ann in a nutshell, in America they are giving us money (or some) in hopes that we will spend it since the economy is not so rosy here. The first round of checks go out on May 2nd - I get mine on May 9th. They are saying, if you qualify, married couple could get $1200 and then $300 for each dependent they have and if you are single, you could get $600. I won't go into the political ramification of this or if this makes sense though....

    Ours is going directly to the auto loan, every single penny. We are working on paying off all debt, and my student loan is *this* close to getting paid off (we're paying off Monday). After the student loan, it's the car loan, then it's the durango loan.

    Rachel, that's awesome!! It feels soooo good to see a loan get paid off completely! We're working on that too.
