July goal reached, yeah!!!

Finally, yesterday I received my economic stimulus check, so what did I do with it? I took it right to the bank and deposited into my savings and stimulated my account! :) With that deposit and some other small checks I had, I added another $700 to my savings. This brings my July savings to $3650! Yeah! And I was hoping to at least add $3600, so I am really happy to have surpassed that. And we are only at the halfway point of the month, so I'll see what else I might be able to add before the 31st.

So, did you receive a stimulus check? And if so, what did you do with it?

I finally received my stimulus check yesterday too! It's getting deposited into the bank today and being used to pay down a credit card!

GREAT! And damn you're good. Putting it away asap is the best way to not spend it ;)

I through mine into my Emergency Fund, then had to take it out cuz i forgot about something (like an idiot), and then put it back in after my paycheck cleared.

so good job!

Way to go! I recieved ours and I put part of it in our e fund and then I put a small part in our checking for a little more padding to the account!

P.S. Love your blog!!!

We received ours two weeks ago. We'll use it to pay down our outstanding mortgage balance (surprise).

I received my check about a month ago and put it directly towards a loan from my in-laws. We were able to pay off the loan with the stimulus check as well as money we had saved!! :)
