My MIL won $5000 at the casino. She is sending us $1000 of it, even though we told her to save it or spend it on something she wants. We're in pretty deep financial trouble. Our heads are, like, a millimeter above water here lol. I, as the houshold financier, have the majority vote on how the money is spent. Do we:
A. Put it all toward our debt (which is at about $14,000 including all the medical debt)
B. Save it and use it a little at a time to help loosen up the budget for a while or for in case a car breaks down, etc
C. Use it to get my husband's 8 cavities filled at the dentist, maybe saving a couple of his teeth in the process
We just had to make some repairs on our rental property, so about $300 is going toward that... what should we do with the rest?
Any other (responsible) options you can think of?

Next question overall
Would you rather have a mom who smoked (who was a good mom) or a non-smoking...
