Default Who doesn't love getting money??

Fil helped drop off dh's car to be inspected and when he came over he brought money! His mother had given him money to divide up between the kids (dh & I and his sisters). It was great timing since dd's bday just passed and Christmas is coming! It is not a ton of money, but enough to seriously think about what to use it for. We don't want to just pay bills since it was an unexpected gift! I think we will just split it and each do something for ourselves (dd just got money for her birthday from the family, otherwise we would get her something too)

That's fantastic!!

That happened to us at Christmas a couple of years ago. My BIL gave us a substantial check which we refused to accept. But he wouldn't give up so we accepted and promised to use it for something other than debt or savings (we were working like dogs to get out of debt at the time and BIL told us to "have some fun" with the money).

We bought a Dyson vacuum cleaner, a Rug Doctor, and an in-ground Goalrilla basketball hoop for the driveway.

Enjoy your surprise windfall!!

Hope you come up with something fun and worthwhile to do with that money.
