If you were given $5,000 to spend however you like, how would you spend it?

I'd use it for home improvements, I think.

I did home renovations last year and purchases for my first home, so I would use it to pay off that.

In your shoes, I would invest it in any upgrades in your home as needed or desired.

Does paying bills count...cause that is what I just did....WE ARE OUT OF DEBT!!! as of 5:10 a.m. this morning, it fills so great.

Now if we didn't agree to do this at this time, we were going to go on a trip, but felt this was more important at this season of our lives.

Use it for getting my own place so I could stop living with my mom then buy furniture for the new place and possible baby items for our baby due in April. Also a romantic get away would be awesome too if we can budget that in.
