      Wow, that’s a dilemma!

      The brakes are a top priority, as that’s a safety issue. Making sure you have water is another top priority. Then, paying back your boss is next, imo.

      so, if you can find a way to contribute to these things, that would be my suggestion.

      in addition, i would rework the budget to be sure to catch up on these things sooner rather than later.

      Morning all…
      I just joined the forums at budget101, and started a blog.

      if you don’t want to go there to read my question…i’m pasting it here:

      so, liss, if you’re reading, or anyone else for that matter…in october, i have a 3rd paycheck…. all of my bills are covered in the first and last check of October….and I’ve already budgeted my usual $100.00 for gas, from the 3rd one. What is the BEST way for me to use this money???

      (This check is also devoid of insurance deductions.. which for me, a single plan, is minimal, but still every penny helps)

      I have a medical bill, balance of $122.00
      I owe the town on the water bill, balance of $125.00
      I owe my boss the balance of the firewood money he lent me…$100.00
      I have no money set aside for xmas, considering buying the kids a Wii.
      I am going to need rear brakes, but parts only, my bf and i will do the labor ourselves.

      Thought about paying the rest of the cars ins. for the year…
      Also thought about putting it in savings…to go towards my $1000.00 emergency fund…(I do not trust myself to put it in savings connected to my checkbook, it’s TOO easy to use) I was considering giving it to my grandmother to put in her safe, or my parents etc…

      Thanks in advance for your suggestions/ input.
