What did you spend your third transfer on?
There are some few things that we lacked before my child could be born. It was Just a few months to my wife's delivery, but we lacked money to buy clothes for a child that we were expecting and therefore when we received the third transfer, we spent on clothes and used the remaining amount of money to renovate my main house that had turned too old and pathetic to live in. The was also small-with a floor space of 9 by 10 units.
