Stimuli

The more I think about it, the more I think I want to stimulate the economy with our stimulus checks. Yes, it'd be great to be out of debt sooner, but it might be better for America to just spend it. After all, I like America-- I'm not going to do something that could potentially hurt our country just because I'm not a fan of the president.

Edit: Doesn't paying off credit cards not really count? It's not putting the money back into the economy.

I *am* concerned about the fact that this is very similar to what we did right before the Great Depression, but in my non-economically trained mind, it could possibly help...

I'm thinking I might use it to re-sod my front yard and make it look awesome. A nice trip might also be fun. I'm thinking I might try to NOT be lame like I was going to be, and spend it paying off my hot tub.

To figure out how much you're getting:
The IRS can calculate it for you if you have a copy of your tax return handy

And here's an FAQ

Something for someone else

What is your "something specific"?
