2.5 K will pay off our credit card debt. 1K towards college savings. 1K just for shopping. 1K towards insurance. Rest for personal savings.

I'll pay off my credit card, and my student loan. That will leave me with $772, and I'll probably need that to get work done on my pos car.

When I started school, I started putting away money for student teaching, and also planned on having my husband's income. We separated in September and I have used most of savings to make up for not having his income. Now I have to rely on my income tax to help me make it. I am hoping to luck out and get one of the paid internships that will last for a year instead of doing just the one semester one. It will take twice the time, but at least I will be paid, and the chances of graduating in December and getting a teaching job in the middle of the school year is slim to none.

Smart! We did that(in fact it's why we're broke right now.). DH couldn't work cause of his student teaching and I couldn't work cause of my own schooling and his schedule was so erratic. We saved up money all year and used student loans to survive. It was hell. Lol

I am putting mine in the bank to use to pay bills when I can't work in the fall because I will be student teaching.
