Reader Poll: Plans for your stimulus check?

Posted By Paul

Hi Everyone,

I thought I would try a Reader Poll to see what people planned to do with their stimulus check.

For me, well my wife and I are expecting our first child so I think we're going to use part of our check to buy a video camera and then bank the rest.

How about the rest of you? Feel free to chime in with a comment on the plans for your check.

Congratulations! I didn't know you were expecting.

We'll put all of our stimulus check into savings (even though the interest rates are falling even further. Sigh)

Not sure yet where we'll put our rebate check, but since renting our old house out, we're putting all the money that was going to that mortgage into savings each month. Also, as I mentioned in a previous post, I'm almost maxing out my retirement savings now, so I'm considering splurging a little. Maybe on something that will help me get more excercise like a new bike or a Wii. ;)

I'm splurging with my check...Taking a trip to Washington, DC over the 4th of July to watch the fireworks!
