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.

The Tri-State is about to witness a metric ton of change over the next 36 hours or so, but before we get to the meat of the forecast let's focus on the hearer and the now - after seeing an absolutely gorgeous start to the work week with afternoon highs nearing the 70° mark and little to no cloud cover, clear skies will linger through the evening ahead and into tomorrow morning as temperature gradually dwindle into the upper 30s and low 40s area-wide. We'll fall to 42° in Evansville setting the stage for yet another mild, albeit far less quiet Tuesday ahead.
