    Rudd is handing us some of our money back, a mere smigin of it, so if you get some how do you plan to spend it.

    As that is what we are meant to do.

    Spend! Spend! Spend!

    Sadly it will most likely be spent on something dull. Work around the house etc.

    Paying of debts as well... I know it's not what it was meant for but in the long run it reduces everyones personal debt & after I've cleared that it loosens up money to spend on whatever I like...

    Eventually I'll get to free up spending money.......

    I'm not eligible for it.

    It's based on last year's tax return and I obviously wasn't off the plane and in the door fast enough for them to count me.

    Given it's getting paid out 5 days ahead of St. Patrick's Day, I think there's decent odds that's exactly what will happen. :D
