Hopefully you didn't blow your whole $600 stimulus check on Mega Millions tickets. Here are some SLIGHTLY smarter ways to use that money . . .
Someone polled 6,000 people who keep a monthly budget, and asked how they're using their $600. Here are the top five things people who stick to a budget are doing with it . . .
1. Putting it in savings, or building up an emergency fund.
2. Paying off debt.
3. Getting a month ahead on expenses.
4. Paying bills.
5. Buying groceries.
Two-thirds of people who keep a budget said they actually saved more money last year than they did in 2019. And less spending was the reason. The top things they saved on were travel expenses, gas, and restaurants.
