If you got handed $10,000 there's a likely scenario I believe COULD play out.

For me...I would take the family out for the nicest dinner they've ever going to have.  Half of them would be begging for Wendy's nuggets or Nanny's mac & cheese.  Then we'd never go back there ever again and they'd believe it was their fault.  When in all actuality it's only because I couldn't afford it.  It's only thanks to the 10K win fall that allowed us to go in the first place.

After that we'd hit a bar & I'd buy a round.  Always wanted to do that but never had the bank to do so.

Then maybe something smart would happen.

  • Investing in stocks or bonds
  • Throw it into my 401K
  • Max out an IRA
  • Put it in savings

But if we're being honest...the restaurant & drinks are more fun so, let's do that instead. It's all up to you if you win the 97X Stimulus Check.
