My sister gave me $100 for Christmas. Now it may not be a lot to some of you guys, but my sister is raising two kids.

I've been thinking how I really don't have anything that I want to buy. I'm content with what I have. So therefore I was thinking of taking my niece (10) and nephew (7) to the mall and just let them buy $50 each of whatever they want.

If I don't do that, I'd probably just save the money or invest it in my business or something. So what should I do? I want a few second opinions on this.

Invest > $100? Ya that will get you real far...

Give it to the kids. You don't need anything, and get that warm fuzzy 'high' from doing something nice. Plus score cool points with them at a young age so when you get old they can take care of you.

Better yet, do $50 for each of the kids and save the rest!

Couldn't resist. No self-control. My bad.

i wouldnt give $50 to a 7 or 10 year old. buy them like a spongebob dvd set or something
yea i was just gonna say that. $5 is prolly a load of dough for kids that old, so just take em shopping and spend like $50 tops and theyll be more than grateful. take the rest and pt it towards a car payment or something
