I'm just curious how many will use some of their stimulus check to spend on the lottery.  I will spend a little of it but the rest  I will save.

It would be nice to double it wouldn't it?  I don't want to sway anyone either way...just curious.

    Just in case you may not know by chance what I'm talking about it's the check you will get from the government to get the economy jumping again....of course if you spend some and lose it you will be giving it back to them......lol

              Well if the government wants me to purchase luxury items with that money they are out of luck as we just spent 900 dollars on heating oil. Now days, I consider staying warm a luxury. Seeing that the majority of our oil comes from other countries, I guess I just helped them!

              If they want me to jump our economy they best give me more money! The rest of the money, I shall save to my 18 month old daughters checking account.

              I have pretty good success with only playing a few numbers as day and hitting so I wont need to spend any of that check for lottery. I read an news article about this very subject, the majority of people said they will either save the money or buy gas, oil, or food.

                  That's more like it.  Exactly what the gov't wants you to do.

                      My check will be going towards gas, food and bills. However, I may use a few dollars to play a couple of lottery games. I just won't be spending the whole check on playing the lottery.

                        Since its bonus month in New York, gonna spend a little extra of it on Numbers/Take -5/NY Lottery but most to pay for bills/gas!!

                        Money won is twice as good as money earned!

                              All the "stimulus" money I get will be going into my lotto piggy bank.

                              The government should stop de-valuing the dollar then a "stimulus package" would not be necessary.

                              When OPEC decides to drop the dollar as its "currency of choice" and uses the Euro to "monetize" oil, look out, a very deep recession/depression will be upon us.
