Tell the Tribune: As part of the economic stimulus package passed by Congress earlier this year, workers are starting to see a few extra dollars in their paychecks. The actual amount varies according to earnings, retirement contributions and the like, but for many it appears to be somewhere in the neighborhood of $15 per week.

The "extra income" is a result of President Obama's Stimulus Tax Credits designed to help put money in employees' pockets by reducing the amount of federal withholding.

The West Central Tribunes asks: What are you planning to do with your extra $15? What will $15 buy each week?
