I received a completely unexpected $200 award today. My first thought was that this could help with my New Year’s resolution to save the life of a starving child, but my second thought is that I have some friends who have lost their jobs and can’t pay their car registration. My third thought is that Valentine’s Day is coming up and my girlfriend could use some help with a few parking tickets. My fourth thought is to invest it an make it grow then I can help more people with it down the road.
What would you do? How would you decide?
