  • any extra amount of money/month would go right into the entire basket, and be doled out accordingly, like a pay increase.

    now, if i just happened to find that much money, on a one time basis, or i won it,, it would still probably go towards the whole net..maybe a little spent on crap.

  • If I had it now...I would use it on myself, updating an outdated wardrobe, getting an awesome haircut, new makeup, mani/pedi. I'm going through a transition and realizing that I have been taking care of everyone but me. That's changing!
