Having just written the federal govt, state govt and local govt a check on April 15th, I will be using the 600 bucks to stimulate my own economy. It will be going into my checking account to help (barely) bolster back up what the govt said they needed.

We will either be buying a couple of bicycles and child seats for the bikes so we can take family bike rides or we will be getting a new mattress. We have not decided if exercise or comfort has won out yet.

Don't have a clue how much i will get. but all of it will go to salvaging our personal finances. We already spent the money on our daughter's wedding. We've been stimulating the economy for over six months now. Why do you think the U.S. ecomonmy hasn't collapsed completely yet. Yep, it was my paychecks that did it. Why, I oughtta get a medal.

Well, the state is scheduled to suck $501 out of our bank account (which is currently below zero) Wednesday, so hopefully it will be deposited by then. The direct deposit ones are supposed to go in from today through Friday. If they do them by the last number of your SS#, as they are doing with the mailed checks, ours may not go in until Friday. As far as the rest of the money, we are low on gas and food, so some of it will go to those. Some of it is going to go to our favorite Mexican restaurant!

I'll probably throw it into savings for when Aspen gets her operation in November.

I guess you need to read that one backwards!

As a side note, they are sending the checks based on the last two digits of your social security number. The lower the number the sooner you get your payment.
