What would you do with $1300?

We are getting $1300 as compensation for a delayed flight over 2 years ago!! I don't know what made DH think of it, but he just submitted some paperwork and they didn't even fight us on it. What a great surprise!!

I'm on maternity leave and we had saved up for that, but it looks like we will hardly have to dip into it at all. So this is 'bonus' money. What would you do with an extra $1300?

I would just stick it away. It isn't that big a deal and anything I could do with 1300 dlars I could do right now anyway...

Probably buy another gold coin.

Put it in savings. $1300 isn't a huge amount so I'd just set it aside

Knowing me, I would send each of my nephews some cash and put the rest up for Christmas.

Sure, we could as well. But we don't typically spend that much unplanned. So I feel like now we can if we want.

Quoting YuppyMom: I would just stick it away. It isn't that big a deal and anything I could do with 1300 dlars I could do right now anyway...

Replace the door leading to our balcony. Planning to do it anyway but doing it effectively for free would be nice.

Pay off what we just spent on our cruise. Then keep the money we set aside for it in savings.
