I just received 15,000$

So Today, i was informed of my grandmothers life insurance policy, she sadly passed away from a heart attack in December. I understand that she left me 15,000$ from it. BEFORE ANYONE THINKS I PLAN TO BLOW IT. i do not. i plan to put it in the bank in some form of a low risk investment, some thing that will allow it to grown until i finish college. But my parents told me i could take maybe 250-300$ out to purchase something if i wanted. I feel terrible about even getting money? i mean whats the cause in me getting money from losing my grandmother? I stuggle with that and don't know whether to take my chance at getting my jeep something or leaving it alone. I ask my self what my Grandmother would want me to do, but honestly i have no idea. She was a great woman and ill miss her dearly.

so im asking you guys from jeeper to jeeper...

1. would you take any small amount out to purchase something?
2. If so list something (300$ and under)
3. is taking some money out a selfish thing todo?


:/ thanks again everyone.

The best question would be, knowing your grandmother, what would she want you to do with it?

Sorry about the loss, too. It sucks, I know.

my dad set up a ira roth account. im not a 100% sure on the details but ill tell you what i know about it. the max you can deposit a year is 5000 and i cant touch it until im 60 i think. when it comes time to take that money out it isnt taxed which is the benefit of the account. i would set something up like that. as for your grandma, im sorry for your loss.

Someday you may want a house, it is found money so invest it and pretend it never existed. And sorry for your loss, I lost my Grandmother 10 years ago and it still feels like it was yesterday, today is her birthday.

Don't blow it. Invest it in an IRA or ROTH. You will not regret it. I wish I had all the money I threw away in a bar and on cigs when I was young.

last december was 10 years for me to. the whole family got together and celebrated all the things my grandma loved to do. the festivities included, eating brussel sprouts with mayo, black licorice, a fork throwing contest, and some other stuff. she started to lose it at the end and thought my dad was a bad guy breaking into the house so she flung a fork at his head and almost hit him.

As stated above, do a little homework and choose an investment plan that suits your needs. Take the 300 and put it into a savings account maybe even add to it a little at a time. If something comes up and you need it, it will be there. Otherwise let it ride. Do not feel guilty for obtaining money through the loss of your Grandmother. She wanted this for you and she would not have wanted to inflict you with guilt. I am truly sorry for your loss, but let the memory of her live on in your deeds.

She obviously left you the money to make your life better and you happy. So instead of feeling bad about having it do what makes you happy. I'm sure that was her intentions from the very beginning. If buying something for your Jeep is going to make you happy than by all means Smile broadly when you make that purchase but remember when you do to take a moment and thank her. Sorry for your loss.

I agree with the above...that money was left to you because she wanted you to be able to live your life a little better. For instance, my grandparents know I'm in a lot of credit card debt from stupid decisions when I turned 18...so if they'd left me any money, they'd want me to shred those cards (which has already been done) and pay the balances off.

If you have debt like that...pay it off. If you don't... I'd recommend what's been mentioned above, take the majority of it and decide on an investment plan...if you want to use it for college, there are investment plans where you can invest that money and then when used for college, you don't have to pay any taxes on it. When my mom died, my dad set me up with around $15k in a similar plan...if you want the details, I have the paperwork in a drawer and I can get you the name of the exact plan. If you don't want it for school...set it aside in some kind of investment plan and perhaps use it as a down payment for a house when you reach that point in your life. Or just keep letting it grow until you need it even further down the road.

When my mom died, my dad set so much aside for my brother and I's schooling...he also paid off all our vehicles and then he allowed us each to buy something we'd enjoy NOW. So he and my brother bought a pair of jet skis and I bought a four-wheeler. We probably should have saved more of that money...but our family wasn't poor to begin with, so we mainly used it as a lil extra padding and a way to help us enjoy our free time so we wouldn't think about our mom's death so much.

My $.02...sorry bout your grandma btw.

Edit: Also, if you have something you really want, by all means...take out some money and buy it! If it were me, I'd probably take a couple thousand out for something I've really been wanting and then invest the rest as a down payment for a house.

I would, as others have said, invest what you can. $5k to a Roth IRA is a VERY good idea. I would put the rest, less a few hundred, into a long term investment - CD or stock, depending on your risk tolerance.

Take a few hundred though and treat yourself and/or jeep. Thats what I would do, but to each his own. Shy of blowing it all on something senseless, I dont think there is a wrong answer here.

I think you're on the right track man. Invest the vast majority of the cash and take the $300 (debt or no debt) and buy something for your Jeep. Buy something that you will SEE on a regular basis. Something on the exterior maybe...like rockers or a new front bumper. Buy something that will last a long time. That way, every time you see it, it will remind you of your grandmother. Don't feel guilty for it either. Your grandmother wouldn't have left the money to you if she didn't want you to have it. Condolences for your loss....

If your G'ma's like mine, she's depression era and frugal. Put it away and use it to buy a house. Make your G'ma proud. Very sorry for your loss.

Sorry for your loss.

I think you have received good advice in investing the bulk of it. It will come in handy for tuition/home/etc. I do think you should take a couple of hundred and buy something that you have wanted, but couldn't justify before, because every time you see/use it, it will remind you of your grandmother and what a wonderful, thoughtful woman she was.

Oh, duh. Like the guy above me just said

Thanks everyone for the advice, i was thinking some nice rocker guards. i mean 300$ rockers won't kill my investment. :/ so maybe that's what ill do, i currently don't have any rockers. And maybe ill buy the stuff to paint my wheels, id love to get some cragar8's but i mean i don't wanna have to unmount and remount the tires...we'll see. no NEED for the rims, so its whatever... ill look into painting.

thanks all, your like a second family to some on here, and make me feel apart of it.

Put in the bank and forget you have until a major purchase like a house comes along. Stay away from investments. A money fund at the bank will pay more than you think, especially 15K. Maybe by yourself something for now like you said, but bank it away and forget you have it. If you invest it you will be penealized when you want to withdraw it and use it.

Make wize choices grasshopper. Good luck

OR, let me hold on to it for you and when you need it I will return it. Yaa, that's a better idea, then you won't have the temptation to spend it.

I think I'm going with Rocker guards.

the rest like you guys have said, will be put away, i mean i knew i was going to not use it, i want to use it to put a down payment for a car after college or help for a house...

when i said investment, i didnt mean like stock or anything, i mean like a deal with the bank where i can't touch it for 5 years or whatever and it will grow.... idk what its called hey im a 17 kid. heck I don't even use my savings and checking accounts, i make 85$ paychecks, i have to just cash it and use 50% on jeep gas, 40% on school lunch, and 10% on out-ings and the GF.

(I'm getting a raise in hours and pay in the 2nd week of march! all the extra money i make above the 85$ dollars i make in a average paycheck will be put in my savings for college spending/safe back up money.)

$85 in a paycheck??? Man...you must be young...lol. You're talking about putting it into a CD. That's a good idea too. My buddy does that with most of his money...his grandpa is my boss (who's a millionaire) and apparently every Christmas, he would give his grandkids each $10,000 to put into a savings account. He put all his money in CDs and just keeps doing that...well that and he's recently been collecting houses. Talk about crazy...22 years old and he owns 4 houses!

As much as it sucks always being broke...getting into the habit of saving your money while you're young makes it MUCH easier to keep that habit going when you get older. People like that are the ones who are usually very well off once they decide to retire (and they also tend to be able to retire earlier). Do your best to keep that habit...and don't get any freaking credit cards! I'm nearly $20,000 in debt at the age of 23 with half of it being credit card debt from when I decided I "needed" a credit card as soon as I turned 18. Biggest mistake of my life.

i would have to agree and disagree with your thoughts on credit cards. i agree with you that its easy to get in debt but credit cards arent bad. get a credit card and use it to buy gas only and nothing else. dont carry a balance just pay it off every month. ive been doing that since i was 18 and have never been late on a payment. by using a credit card it will help to build up your credit and eventually you will need it. well i take that back you dont need any credit unless you plan on being able to pay cash for a car or house.

Im 17.... i didn't pay for my jeep, i know, hate on me.... but i mean i live in a Very rich community.. (i came from a much less fortunate place) LONG story short, i lost my most amazing mother in the 5th grade, and a few years later my father met his currect wife, she owned a multi-million dollar business which since then has created 2 more sucessful businesses... shes a PURE business woman. so yeah my parents i guess you could say are loaded.. now the reason i even stated that was to show that even tho i make almost nothing and didn't pay for my most loved jeep.... I know the value of a dollar and realize how fortunate to have what i do. for 3 years i saved AS IF i was going to buy my car, i was told i wasn't getting one... so i have saved about 4.5k for a car.... then i got the jeep. and im forever greatfull..... NOW i use my job (at my mothers cafe) to pay for gas, and the saved money to cover insurance....

i know its not like i bought it, but for my area, and money, paying for all mods, gas, insurance, and understanding how fortunate i am, i think i'm doing alright. i do only work maybe 11 hours a week as a senior in HS... but i make what i have to to pay for what i have to. i do get more hours some weeks, and straight save whats left over..

I never expected to get the jeep, or my parents to pay for anything

I pay for gas, insurance and everything on my jeep. 99' 95k miles..
My next door neighbor saw my jeep, and bought his 15yr old son a 2009 rubicon, on 37's and 6" long arm kit... (for now the drives it w/ the parents on his permit.....)
my best friend got a 2010 Mustang GT500 for his birthday.... i mean WTH dose he need that for? lol i bet he wrecks it within the first month....

idk why i went on a rantsorryzz

just know i love my family, and i realize how lucky i am, I understand the value of a dollar and just yeah.... lol you guys get it. and i wasn't attacking you... i just had someone call me out today in class about all that.. and i had to vent alittle.

Sorry.muchlove.peace

I see your point completely. I have'nt found myself directly in this situation as of yet, but will be soon enough unfortunately.

The poeple I know that have come into money this way often feel guilty spending any of it, some cases more extreme than others. One I have in mind right now (she is 33) the money has been sitting for 12 years now and the only time she touches it (working off interest at this point as it was over a million dollars) but she'll only touch it to help out family as she is pretty well set in her own life with a good job etc. So she chooses to live of her own money alone.

I'm not sure I could practice all that restraint to be honest. But given your age I would do what the majority is saying and that is to put it away for a rainy day or future investments/opportunities.

I don't think buying a small token for the Jeep would bring her dismay. She wanted you to have it to be happy one way or the other after all.

from what ive heard smittybilt has gone down the crapper since they started making their stuff in china. for the price of those sliders you could find the same thing from a more reliable brand. just my input, take it or leave it

Seems as though you have a pretty good plan all figured out. I wish you luck, and am sorry to hear about your position with your mother and grandmother. My mother was paralyzed when I was in 5th grade, couldn't imagine loosing one. I feel for ya.
