    Okay, without getting into anything political (and please don't), most US taxpayers will receive a check from the government in an effort to revitalize our sagging economy.

    Sure, I could use mine to add to my savings account or pay a little extra on my monthly mortgage payment, but I'm going to try to spend the check - at least most of it, anyway - as it was intended. I'm planning to buy some paint for the exterior of my house and maybe a grill for some backyard barbecuing.

    I found this website while searching for US made items. I have no affiliation with the site, just thought it was interesting. Still Made in USA.com - American-Made Products for Home and Family

    How will you spend your check?

    P.S. Please, please, please do not turn this into a political thread.

    I'm going to use mine to pay off debt from my last round of wardrobe stimulus at Nordstrom.

    I haven't received mine yet. According to the last two digits of my SS#, it should have come last week.

    What will I do with it? Pay on medical bills.

    I used all but $50 of mine to get ahead on my credit debts. Sadly, I'm still without a job though, so I have to use the rest of that just to make ends meet.

    Hey njreg. I'm, of course, happy for your economic stimulus loan.

    Although, I did appreciate the irony of your posting a "still made in USA-American made products for home and family" website, and then pleading for this to be a non-political thread. Nicely subtle...:smile:

    Interesting point, Stretch, but I'm not bright enough to inject that kind of subtletly into a thread. It was just a link that I found useful and interesting and thought I'd share.

    You state "most Americans will be receiving a check...."

    I guess I'm in the minority then; I won't be getting one. But if my BF had a vagina, we'd both be getting a check.

    I'll spend mine eventually on relocating to Arizona. I have the rest of my deposit and prorated rent to pay, and I'll need some pots and pans and crap like that.

    How do you determine how much you will be getting. I made over $3,000. I made roughly around $25,000 and am single.

    You'll be getting $600, like most people.
