You'll likely net less than $30k, probably in the vicinity of $25k depending on where you are. Options: 1) Throw it in investments or savings 2) Pay down any outstanding debt 3) Buy either this car: https://www.cars.com/vehicledetail/detail/810574324/overview/ or this car: https://www.cars.com/vehicledetail/detail/804838773/overview/ or this car: https://www.cars.com/vehicledetail/detail/794819267/overview/ 4) Buy this tv: https://www.lg.com/us/tvs/lg-oled88zxpua-signature-oled-8k-tv 5) Invest in btc 6) Cash it and stuff some briefcases with stacks of bills 7) Earmark it for a kick-ass vacation once things open up

Do not buy a Ferrari 355 unless you immediately want to spend $40k bringing it's maintenance back to current.

Very simple 1. Pay off any or as much high-interest debt as you can 2. Invest the rest* 3. Set aside $500-$1000 to treat yourself and buy Christmas (or whatever you celebrate) presents for your loved ones
