$50 that I don't know what to do with

September 30th, 2008 at 08:36 am

NT's paycheck today has $50 in overtime. Usually I know what my top priority for extra money is, be it extra debt repay, fun-money savings, medical expenses or spending money. But in an uncertain future, it's difficult to make those kinds of decisions. I know I should either:
- Put it aside for emergency or medical expenses.
- Put it in Xmas gift savings.
- Use it to start saving for next year's CSA.
- Put it toward next year's vacation.
- Pay off a little extra on my personal loan.

All of these categories need a lot more than $50, and so it's difficult to prioritize. Maybe I should put $10 in each...

    Then it's settled! Thanks momsents, I just needed someone to decide for me.

    How about if you ask your housemates what they think? Do they not want to participate in that size decision?

    Joan--I do ask their opinion when I'm stumped, but usually I get "whatever you think is best" or "I trust you to make the right decision." Smile Since this is basically an arbitrary decision, I'm not going to bother. Besides, they read my blog and can let me know if they think I should do something differently.
