If you had $200.00 dollars on you what or how would you use it?

I would like to maybe some how open an account under my name and try to save for the future my dh does not think we can save money I am the saver and he is the spender. I spend yes but when needed. not just to blow it. I would like to have money for us to fall back on in the future but if I tell him what I want to do he will ask me to put that money in the bank, them we are back where we started from.
I want this time for it to stretch. I thought of opening it for our 2 kids under their names but he won't care who or where the money is. I hate to be so sneaky because he is a really a good guy, father, husband, provider and more...........

  • I'd buy us some plane tickets to go see my husband's family for New Years. They haven't met our son yet! Other than that, some would go into the college fund, some would be put aside, and I do need a new pair of jeans lol.

  • I would give it to the company that is doing the mortgage mediation on our home to get them paid up so we don't lose our home. Seriously Hey you asked. But don't feel bad, things happen.

  • yeah, a savings account is very important in my opinion! We always keep three months worth of living expenses in a savings account "just in case" Our goal is to increase our savings to 6 months worth of expenses (about 15K) and then we will just sit on it and stop putting money in every month.

    Once our "emergency savings" is finally finished, we are planning to open a vacation account and start putting our monthly savings in there instead! whoo hoo! :) We're hoping to be there by december 2009!!

    If I had $200 in my pocket today I would probably put it towards a new mattress for our bed. We need one SOO bad, we sleep terribly!
