Kris Stiffarm says that's how his family gets by. When he turned 18 earlier in the month, he cashed his $45,000 check and went shopping.
"It took me two weeks until I was back down to zero." Kris admits. "I ran into a lot of stuff I wanted to buy."
A lot of stuff for Kris means two trucks, three ATVs, a speedboat, a trailer and a Playstation 3.
It's not fair to say Kris spent all his money.
"Oh yeah, I put [aside] like $500, for my baby," Kris says.
