Have you spent all your Stimulus Check money?

After buying a laptop and getting an internet connection, I only have $100 left. Initially I saved it, but I needed dental work, shoes, ECT.

Do you have any left and what did you spend it on?

Paid off the entire debt on one credit card and chipped away at my PayPal credit. But soon afterwards I maxed out the card and PayPal again. I’m an idiot. Used to be way more careful.
Made up my mind to never do it again. Gotta stop buying dumb stuff and pay ‘em off.

Most of the stuff I get are necessities. The laptop and internet connection are luxuries. Right now I’m not in debt on my two credit cards. I’ve been paying them off and closing them for awhile. I’m going to keep the two I have now though.

I bought clothes for summer. I bought an electric :guitar: on eBay for only $100. It came with an amp, cord, strap, pick, strings, and case. It’s a solid wood guitar painted yellow. It’s a good guitar, I was surprised, because it was inexpensive. It goes out of tune every three days. I spent money on a few other things. Now I am saving the rest for groceries and to pay someone to take me home from my colonoscopy.

I have just spent the last of it on some frames to frame some paintings I’ve had for 30+ years that my Mom and my Aunt painted. haven’t gotten the frames yet but they should be here next week. I’m pretty excited. It will be nice to hang those paintings.

You don’t get stimulus $$$ in Canada if you’re employed, you help provide it to those who aren’t.

IDK if I have any left. It’s mixed up in my bank account with my SSDI money and my money from my job.

I received 4 stimulus checks. Three from the federal government and one from California. Didn’t really make any big purchases except to have dental work done. That took a lot of the money. Also paid my car insurance and registration. Fun.

After buying my last camera I still have a pretty good chunk of my last stimulus saved.

Right now I have a fair amount of my stimulus check left, but I need new shoes and I need to get one or maybe two cats spayed. I’ll see what I have to work with then. I also have a possible bill I might need to pay.
