Purpose Your Government Stimulus Monies


Don't spend it all in one place. Have you ever heard that? I say we change our mindset to spend on purpose. 

Millions of Americans are receiving at least $1,400 because the US Congress passed the American Rescue Plan last week and US President Joe Biden signed the bill into law. In addition to the direct payments
