Stimulus Check

Tomorrow we are FINALLY getting our stimulus check from the good ole IRS. We were lucky to get $2400 this year. I know a lot of people didn't get this money, so we are pretty happy we did! Hubby is buying a lap top, I got my iPod, the kids are getting their summer clothes and we have to buy our youngest a big girl bed. Fun Fun! Oh, and we need a new table and chairs. But the table, chairs and bed are going to wait till my hubby gets back again this summer. I do have to say though, I am looking forward to going shopping this weekend!!! I have coupons too, so even better!

Wow, that's pretty nice! Does it get based on your income? Most of the blogs I've been reading, the highest amount I've seen so far has been $1100, it's usually in the $600 range!

I am not totally sure how, but most couples get $1200 together if you filed a joint return, and then $300 per child under 18. if you make too much then you'll get less, probably why you saw the 600.
