    So, since the government is just about done with sending stimulus checks out the people around America, I was wondering what you guys ended up spending the money on? My wife and I just recently purchased a house and we are considering putting our check, $1,500 towards a really nice washer/dryer set. Anybody spend it on something really cool?

    oh and yeah, if you have a recommendation for a good washer/dryer please reply also hehe :D

    With your crazy spelling of 'cheque' I assumed this was a thread about having parts of your body poked to see how it reacts.

    I am disappointed and now must seek thrills elsewhere.


    Good day.

    My wife got a laptop... and she used half of my half of the check. So come August I've be getting about $300 back... hooray.

    The rest was used to keep us afloat until the next payday.

    got mine a few weeks ago. It went toward paying for my computer (still got $100ish left to go by Nov), License plate renewal for my xB, and the rest is for TFs... (spent about $120 of it so far)

    I wanted to spend it on frivolities, but decided it'd be in my best interests to just save it.
