As those stimulus checks continue to roll out Nationwide, financial planners say there are a few ways to put your money to good use. Experts say there are actually five different ways you should spend your money.

You can either use it on bills, reduce your debt or create an emergency fund with the $600.

Donating it to those in need is also a good way to spend your check but you also may want to start thinking about life after the pandemic, perhaps save the money for a vacation!?

Payments are expected to continue to hit bank accounts over the next several weeks.

Our snowy, slick start to the day gave way to a gloomy, gray and chilly afternoon throughout the Tri-State. After only reaching temperatures in the mid 30s early in the day, we will see temperatures gradually tumble back down into the upper 20s by 10 o’clock. Despite the gradual clearing conditions overnight (which would normally lead too a much colder morning), the mercury is expected to remain relatively stable into early Tuesday morning. The return of a southerly wind flow overnight will help keep the temperatures milder as we head towards daybreak.
