I was surprised at work today with a $160 cash bonus. Yea me!
There is a long, complicated story behind it, and no one but my boss and I really could care. The short version: We received a check at work (which I put alot of time into getting) for $1600, and my boss gave me the 10% he normally would keep.
Like I said, there is way more to it, but I won't bore you.
So, what to do with it???? Part of me says "pay down debt." Considering we are 68k in debt, this would be an excellent use of funds. Part of me is still coveting the bookcase from this past spring and summer. *sigh* Part of me says save it for something else.
Right now, I am leaning towards $100 to debt (which will help me finish my snowball a few weeks faster), and $60 into the "save for XYZ fund."
I am great at knowing what to do with G-man's bonus money.....mine....not so much. He is of no help. He said do what I want.
