I have thousands more musts on my list before these would even be slightly considered and swept aside.
My top 5 musts for $15K would be-
1. Save some for the boys college fund. Joe has big ideas for a house when he grows up, he'll need a very well paying job!
2. Pay off my medical bills and save a stash since it's a forever yearly expense.
4. Down payment on a home
5. Play money for our vacation and home
I know 15K really doesn't stretch far for my top 5's but at least it's a boost to them. What would your top 5 be if you had an extra 15K laying around? Would it be contacts?
