What are you doing with your stimulus money?

Assuming you have not lost your job what are you spending your stimulus money on?

So far I decided to buy a 7500 watt generator. I went with duel fuel as I have a buried 600 lbs propane tank in my yard.    I researched which one was for sure made in the US so my money was staying in US and bought it locally Last week to keep retail sales and sales tax close to home.  
Im looking to pay a local tradesman to paint my house instead of doing it myself this summer and buy a bunch of meat from local farmers.

I think it’s important to keep this money as locally as possible to help restart local economies

I honestly felt bad getting this money when I’m still working though my income will take a hit.  I have some customers that are providing Covid related products that are going nuts.  Our factories have prioritized those orders and I’ve gotten letters from a CEO of a major health care Oem thanking us.  But my biggest customer by far is in what has been considered non essential medical so that is basically shut down.  They make capital equipment used to detect cancer which somehow is no longer important.  I have a job still but my commission for the year is shot.  
If there is a round 4 of stimulus it should not be going to everyone in a check.  I hope it just goes to unemployed.

Please don’t turn this thread into policrat- let’s try to keep this positive

I don't think we are getting it. Would have gotten it by now right?

Still waiting for the $1200 check that's supposed to last 10 weeks.

It won't quite cover quarterly property taxes.  But I guess that counts as keeping it local.

If we receive one in the mail and that is debateable (given the propensity of screw ups lately ) will donate it to a local charity that helps the poor and those in real need

I, and my business which is presently still on the non-essential business list, received, nada, squadouche, zero.zero.

Kinda ironic that the one guy who hates the sound of the word socialism, but had no issue spending that money
