    I'd love to use it to take me to a beach with clear blue waters.

    But realistically I would save it to use for my new classroom or an updated fall teaching wardrobe.

    Use it all to pay 40% of my August rent.

    This is an old thread, so I decided to see what I said a year & half ago.

    I still want new clothes, but I must first lose 10 lbs. I have a total of about 30 lbs to lose.

    We just had to repipe our house, so realistically, that $500 would go to decrease that bill or to pay someone to re-install the ceiling in the basement.

    My grand daughters have seen the American Girl dolls they would like and I am under orders to visit the store when I am in Chicago. $500 would do nicely!

    At least the Lego store is right next door to the American Girl store; you will get a kick out of it!

    I know! However Mrs blazer also knows that Macy's is on the floor above! I think we may be melting some plastic!

    I had a dream about this...

    If i was given $500, I would seriously put it towards my bills--putting it towards summer bills inparticular because summer is always the toughest time..ohhh and go out for a really nice SEAFOOD dinner:p

    We need to have several more ash trees taken down due to emerald ash borer disease running rampant through the Midwest. $500 will just be a dent in the total cost.

    Probably just put it in the bank for now and use it for new clothes when I reach my weight loss goal.

    Straight into the bank. Every little bit helps when saving up for a house in the area we are at!

    Assuming it was given freely as a gift, I would use it toward purchases for our new house-paint, window coverings, etc. There is a lot we need.
