Thats cool. With an extra $500 I could actually start a home school program and learn a trade I can do from home.

How wonderful that will be! I will save $500 for the next 8 months, and $4000 will be enough for me to buy 3 tickets to fly to Australia to visit my niece and nephew whom we miss very much!

I would spend $100 extra on things I need, and invest $400 in mutual funds. You would be very surprised how fast this would grow. That would be $4800 deposited plus growth each year.

I forgot about my van, my driver side door wont stay shut so we had to rig it. Now I have to climb throught the passenger door just to get in and out. It sux. I would put my van in the shop too, or just get a new one since I could afford the payments with the extra money.

Id buy the person giving me the $500 dinner and then use it to pay of my only remaining debt then save and invest the rest :P What would more likely happen is I factor that money into my income and just spend it all.
