And I'm not telling anyone about it. Not even dh. I had an escrow surplus. Just opened up the mail and bam...2500.

What would you do if you got 2500 unexpectedly?

     I'd put it in savings.

    Fix our cars and save the rest.

    I got 1200$ unexpectedly, I fixed my brake lines (which had ruptured) and got my eyebrows done.

    The rest I bought clothes (I REALLY needed a new couple bras, I wear FF cups and my bras are like 50$ each, I put it off for years) got medicines I needed and paid off some debt. Hid the rest. :)

    Ugh! Could you stop pretending to be a rich bitch yet?!

    My FIL just sent us a 2,000 dollar check just because. We don't think anything of it, it's really not a lot of money. We just threw it into an account.

    Pay for Christmas and put the rest into savings...then the money I was spending on Christmas I would put into savings too

    If you didn't need it why would he send it?

    Anyways, OP, I'd go to Disneyland for a couple days and stay in the Grand Californian or whatever the hotel is called.

    I'm sure your FIL thought it was generous of him and a lot of money. I sure hope you appreciated it.  You sound a tad ungrateful the way you worded your reply.

    I'm behind on my student loans, I've got a medical bill that my insurance screwed me on and I need some work done on my car. Just like that...surplus gone lol. Ah well maybe I can set a couple hundred aside for Christmas.

    This. Stash it away.

    Save it for emergencies.  Surprise money is best just left alone and forgotten.
