  • 1/3 goes to pay off bills, 1/3 to savings, and 1/3 to junk or family project. Last years went to remodeling the bathroom

  • We always put it into savings.

  • We usually get some things we need that we had been putting off and pay the rest on bills. Last years we put new tires on my car and bought a new tv. The rest went on the credit card bill.

  • The first year we got one I think we blew it. 2nd year all but $100 of it went to debt. This year it will be the same thing. Debt and savings (since we'll hopefully be debt free by then).

    Anyway I don't think we blow it IMO.

  • We usually do a bit of both. We usually buy things we need or pay bills that need to be paid, and then we will spend the rest of it on doing things as a family (movies, dinner, etc.).

  • Usually pay things off, buy a few fun things, then save the rest.

  • We spend it on debt and then use the rest to take care of home repairs. We bought a fixer-upper that is still in the fixing stage!
