I’ll leave it to the How I Spent My Stimulus blog to explain what it’s all about:
In January, Congress approved $152 billion in economic stimulus checks for millions of American households, intended to boost the economy and avert a recession. Just how this money will be spent remains to be seen. We hope this website helps shed some light on where the stimulus money is going.
Living in Canada, I won’t get such a cheque, but I did get a nice tax refund this year, and all of it — save the cost of Grand Theft Auto IV — is going into an RRSP.
