How I am Spending my Stimulus Check
Did you get a stimulus check?
Many American citizens are about to or have already gotten, a stimulus checks from the government. I am one of the lucky ones who has already received it in my bank account! Very exciting and very needed at this point. I am lucky enough to still have a job. However, since I get paid by the hour my paycheck is way down. With kids at home, not much work is getting done. I am also concerned about the security of my job since I work in a real-estate adjacent field. I can’t imagine that it won’t be affected (here are some steps to take if you are nervous about your job). What that will mean I don’t know.
Here is how I am going to use my “check”:
We got the deposit and immediately transferred it into my Barclays Savings account. That is where I keep my large emergency fund. We have been working for a while to save up between 3-6 months of expenses. We are not there yet. I have never had the balance been as large as it is today!
