This week the third-round of stimulus checks are being sent out. You will qualify if you make under $75,000 for individuals, below a certain threshold — $75,000 for individuals, $112,500 for heads of household, $150,000 for couples filing jointly, and an additional $1,400 for each dependent claimed on their most recent tax filings.
How should you spend your stimulus?
I get it, you want to be responsible with your stimulus check, but what is the best financial decision to make?
I’ve got you covered, I’m sharing 6 things to do with your stimulus check. But before we get into what to do with your check, I want to be sensitive to the fact that so many people are still without jobs or took a major pay cut this past year.
Are wanting to start a side hustle and need the extra money, but you have no clue where to start or what you could even do?
I’ve got you covered! Here are 147 Side Hustle Ideas That Make An Extra $1,000/Month. They are ALL ideas that you can do safely from your home!
Get current on your bills
If you are past due on any of your bills now is the time to use your stimulus check to pay those bills in full. Whether you are behind on your water bill, electric, rent, or car payment use your stimulus check to get current on your bills.
Build up your emergency fund
Having an emergency fund of at least one month of expenses is the best way to break that paycheck to paycheck cycle. Click here to read why I don’t think $1,000 is enough for an emergency fund anymore.
2020 has taught us that layoffs and pay cuts happen and we should have a minimum of 1 month’s worth of expenses as an emergency fund. That doesn’t mean total income but just expenses saved. After you have your full month emergency fund then you can slowly build up to 3-6 months while tackling other financial goals.
Pay off debt
Using your stimulus check to get rid of a big chunk of debt is a solid financial decision. If you are unsure of the best way to tackle your debt check out this video where I share 3 debt payoff methods to help you choose which method is best for YOU and your personal situation.

I enrolled in ”Dreamer to Profitable” three weeks ago, and was so inspired after watching the first couple lessons. I didn’t have a business or side hustle, or even any kind of money-making idea when I enrolled. Since starting, I’ve made my first $1,083 by writing blog posts for people!

I’m a single mom of two. I work full time, and I hate to admit it, but I’ve been living paycheck to paycheck for years. It’s a struggle to get everything done in the day, and I was nervous about investing in this course and afraid I wouldn’t have the time to do it or to put in the work. I was determined, and I did!!! This course not only helped me solidify my business idea but also taught me how to manage my schedule and come up with a system to get it all done. I am so thankful for this course! THANK YOU!!!

I have been on YouTube for three years now, and I make a couple of hundred dollars a month from it in ads. I knew I could make more money, but was not sure how. Since taking this course, I now have FOUR new revenue streams that complement my YouTube channel. Not only has this tripled my income, but it also got me excited again to make content and serve my audience.
