What should we do to celebrate?

We have been broke for so long and I finally found a really good paying job. What should me and my 18 month old do once I get my 1st check?

  • You guys should go out to lunch and then Chuck E. Cheese or a movie. Go to the park and eat ice cream. Buy yourself something nice and a new toy for the little one.

  • Completely agree with Jguevara.

    Also, maybe start a savings account in your kiddos name and deposit $5 every paycheck.

  • Take a trip to a nice zoo, have lunch somewhere fun (take a picnic to the zoo maybe), or if its too cold, check out a local hands on Children's Museum. He's not too young for that :-) Have a treat day for you and him but then make sure you start yourself AND him a savings account. Yours you should try to put 10% of your pay into it if you possibly can, and his you can put $10 a week or so and it will add up to a nice little sum when he needs it.
