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.

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.

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.
