How much are you getting & what will you do w/ it?

I don't mind saying how much I'll get, it's not like any of us know each other. I'm getting a total of $2539 & I'll be saving most of it for when I move to my new place.

I usually have to pay around $1k. This is how I prefer it. Why give the gov't a free loan, when I can have the money working for me?

Default Saving it..

Maybe a small amount for some new clothes. I truly want to go on a Hawaiian vacation, But use the vacation time to see family out West.

It's a small sacrifice to see my much elder family members. Hawaii will come one day though
