So I discovered this morning we've got an unplanned $1000 extra coming in this week and I have ZERO idea what to do with it! All the bills are paid up or in credit. There's nothing really that needs replacing around the house, we have savings to a decent amount and dp can't get time off for a mini holiday. The kids don't need anything (although ds1 will tell you he's going to die without the new batman Lego game....) I would like to maybe profit from the cash although it's not alot to invest.
What would you do with a 'spare' $1000?

If I was in your financial situation, and I had a spare $1000 I would enjoy a pampering day with a friend. A morning in a day spa for a facial, massage and manicure, and high tea in the afternoon. Childfree of course, lol!

It would go towards a new (second hand) car. I'm thinking about trading mine in.
If not that I need a new sofa so I'd buy that.
