    Hmm..this poll, even if done on a grand scale that could be considered "scientific" might be biased as people generally feel better about themselves saying they'd save their money rather than spending.

    I wont qualify for it because I am an unemployed college student....so I wont vote.

    But if I did get one, I would spend it. Probably on a new iPod since I've lost mine.

    Or, probably on a couple of Bobby Jones hybrids.....


    Actually, I will probably do that anyway, without the nice gov't check....

    Well we can see who the home owners are at least.:D

    That'd be the greater part of my mortgage for the month, so I guess the extra would go to...getting a head start on other bills.



    Or a powerful lens for my camera. ;)

    that's a good call on extra income also.

    i want to change out the exhaust on my hemi magnum also. $600 could do that easily.

    i have savings. i have 401k. i do all i can to provide for me later. that's what making >$75k allows. so give me extra money and i spend it on a toy. an extra. but i spend it.

    I'd spend it, but I'd spend on on things I was already planning on buying. Does that count as saving too?

    Yep, I got me some monsters. I hope they do the trick. Right now everything is being connected with old cabels or the cheap ones that came with the equipment.

    I got so frustrated I just said screw it and took the plunge.

    the sad thing is spending it on electronics which is what i would probably do if i hadn't just completed my media room, would mean buying a lot of foreign stuff:(


    so much for my stimulating the economy....
