In case anybody was wondering whether I caved in and spent my "unclaimed property" check for $4460.50, or put it into my nestegg, here's the breakdown:
$1065.72 (24%) was spent on technology (see below)
$596.55 (13%) was spent on my half of our evacuation expenses
$2798.23 (63%) went to my nestegg
Technology acquired included a new Dell desktop computer, a snazzier wireless router to replace the one that broke, and a new color laserjet printer.
LBYM? What's LBYM?
Oh well. It was unexpected money so I decided to spend a little.
