Your shrunken, $600 stimulus check: Here are 9 ways to beef it up

MoneyWise Logo By Ethan Rotberg of MoneyWise | Slide 1 of 10: Over the last couple of weeks, you may have received another "stimulus check," a second direct payment from the government to provide more COVID financial relief. But here’s the catch: Congress decided to provide you with only half as much cash as the first time: $600, not $1,200. Critics say that's not nearly enough, as the virus spirals out of control and leads to new lockdowns and layoffs. President-elect Joe Biden wants to send more money, but he'll need to get his new administration off the ground first. If your household budget is strained and you were counting on a $1,200 boost, you’ll need to find the other $600 on your own. Here are nine ways to make up the difference.
