Soooooo Stimulated

Economic Stimulus payment arrived via direct deposit today. Hmm, what lead-infused Chinese toys can I purchase?

Actually, we'd decided to use a bit of that cash to join a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program run by a local organic farm. At least 15 weeks of fresh fruits and vegetables by the bushel this summer/fall. Yummy!

The rest will probably be saved.

Mine might be going towards the purchase of an iPhone, depending on how much mine will be.

According to the talking heads on the financial media outlets, spending it on fuel or food will dilute the "stimulus for the economy" part of the plan, due to the high prices and much of the money will end up off shore.

Personal services is being touted as having the biggest bang for the buck. So gents, convert those checks to dollar bills and head on out those entertainment businesses usually found down by the airports . . .

I eFiled so mine hasn't arrived via direct deposit yet, it was slated for the 2nd week of deposits which was suppose to be May 9 I believe. Theorhetically I should have $2400 coming back my way. For once having kids was worth something.

I might buy a gas grill or a used garden tractor with attachments, the rest will go towards Bill's bills.

I'm supposed to get like $300, I'll just give it right to Visa and pay it off.

I just got my $200 refund and I put the whole thing on my Visa card.
