All that for $500.....My brother-in-law is going to visit a friend who is stationed in Hawii and his airplane ticket alone was almost a grand...


I would get a PS3 or 360 and several games to go with it. Or I'd put it in the bank and nickle and dime it until it was gone.

Unfortunately, if I did anything with it other than catch up on bills then my wife would probably lose her mind...

Assuming I lived in Australia, I'd probably see if I could pay to get in a shark cage and observe great whites.

I have $800 right now with no bills what so ever.
I am attempting to do the responsible thing to do and save it.
I don't NEED to buy anything.
But if someone handed me $500, I would add it to my $800 giving me $1,300.

THEN, I would break the rules and save it xD
