Please choose the best option from below. A,B, or C? Not what you plan to do w yours, but from these options, which is smartest in your opinion?

If you recieved a large refund check, would you

A)pay all your bills up in advance, making your balance a generous credit, enough for an entire year.

B) divide the balance by twelve and put it all up jn separate envelopes, and just use one envelope a month to supplement your existing income.

C) save a little and spend the rest on other essentials, and some non essentials. (tires, car maintenance, Christmas in advance, bdays in advance, stuff like that.)


Which of these options sounds like the smartest thing to do to you?

Use the money to move into a better place & pay the rest of bills off.

I would save it all & adjust my withholding so I don't give the government another tax free loan this year.

I would pay off all if not most of my debts and sleep well at night :).

We couldn't even pay our rent up for a year let alone all bills.

We spend some, go on a small vacation. And save the rest.

We always use it to pay bills. Then take a Little for something fun.

We would just throw it into one of our accounts because we don't depend on free money.
