Got a nice pay raise! Now what?
 
So my boss got canned last week (about time) and I got his job as lead engineer for a team of about 20. The pay raise was substantial in my eyes but I don't really have bills, I invest and put money in savings and my retirement fund. At this point I am considering some modest upgrade to tvs at home and maybe a new sound system for my office but what else?

P.S.
The raise was 14k

save it and buy a house. if you already have a house, put the additional money towards your principle and pretend you didn't get a pay raise. you'll cut your mortgage in half or better.

10 on hookers and blow. 4 into your funds. Dead serious. Do it. Do it.

This.

Maybe buy yourself a TV as a present to yourself for the promotion, but then just go back to living like you never got a raise.

Save it for when you get canned!

This. Maybe take like 2k and treat yourself.

You should gloat about your money and do a one-time purchase of something awesome. After that, stock it away.

$14k, was that a typo? you meant $140k. if i had a boss and i received a $14k raise i'd spit in his face. i couldn't wipe my ass with $14k. what a disgrace.

If you have to force yourself to think about what to spend your money on... you shouldn't be spending it. Save it for when you actually need it.

That raise better be $14k per month or e46f is not impressed. In before f2b.
