What to Do With Your Stimulus Check
By now, everyone in the USA has heard that they’ll be receiving an economic stimulus check from the IRS this year. Some of you may have already received yours. I’m still waiting for mine to come – it should be soon though.
I’ve been excited about getting this money ever since I heard the plan was even being proposed. I believe, however, that for the most part it will not be used as the government had hoped for. First of all, with the rising gas prices, OPEC will be receiving a lot of it. Credit card companies will more than likely be next on the list of the beneficiaries of this government program. Third will probably be Walmart – yes, I’m that specific. I say Walmart because they’re only the largest retailer in the US, and they generally have good prices. So, if someone needs to buy something with that ‘free’ check, why not get it at Walmart so that they can get a good value for their money. Now I’m sounding like a Walmart advertisement…
Walmart will probably not see a dime of my stimulus dollars. The first thing I’ll be doing is buying a set of new, much needed tires for the truck. The remainder of the money will be used to pay off some debt that I’ve yet to recover from since Christmas.
What will you do with yours?
