Every once in a while we get money we didn't expect. What do you do with it?

I have been married for 24 years and periodically we receive money we didn't expect. The first few times we received money out of the blue we just blew and had fun, but later thought it would have been better spent on our morgage or something more beneficial to our lives. What would you do if you had an extra $10,0000.00?

I will give half of the money to investment.stock and national debt.Then one fourth of the money is put in bank.The residual will give benefit to my life.

Excellent. We still need to give ourselves a treat once in a while.

I would save at least 50% of what i get and spend the other half usefully so that the life of my family gets improved or i may spend it on a well deserved adn expected holiday for the whole family. Surely i wont buy a new automobile

Excellent, vacations are nice to have periodically. We have not had a car now for three years, since my heart attack, but I certainly miss it for going fishing.

It would be nice if this was true! So far, it is only bills, bills, bills for me!

It's nice to get a sum of money unexpectedly so I hope you get some soon.

I would first pay a tithe on it and then either use it towards some credit cards or put it into and Term Savings account for awhile. It would definitely depend what's going on in our life at the time we received the money.
