          True.  First and foremost, anything over 500 cash has to have taxes paid on it first.  So I guess the first thing I do, is pay that tax.  What a pain in the ass that would be to be audited over chump change.

      pay down bills, so the normal money I receive can be saved for future use or put into a savings account to use later when I feel the need for recreation.

    Buy $1000 worth of seeds and grow your own food (and save the seeds for next year's planting.

    With that much you should be able to feed dozens of families, year after year, and it will multiply dozens of times each year.

    I would spend it on what I've already spent it on (pay my credit card off!)

      This is what I would do too.  To get rid of interest payments is one of the surest returns!

    Is it just any $1000 or it is a windfall? If it is the later, I will spend it on what you want the most and could not have it before! :-)

      That is never any fun. 

      However, that is another good idea.  Pay taxes, and bills.  Fun, fun, fun.

    I would probably drink myself to death.  $1000 is a pretty hefty bar tab, no matter where you drink.

    I would travel somewhere.  Where should I go for just a thousand bucks.  I'd rather drive, b/c I like road trips

    Ok maybe I was just being a bit too impractical.I guess I would buy season tickets for the soccer games and end up spending the rest travelling places !!

    I'd suggest saving half and using the other half to pay off any debt or expenses.
