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.
