I don't really have good uses for it.

SP, I believe this means that it's time for you to start thinking more broadly about how to use your money. You've regularly mentioned that there are causes you care about -- the Boy Scouts, your nephews, the trades, and a variety of other things. Why not start giving more to things like that? Seattle has an excellent network of community colleges that have really good trades programs. (I still wish, looking back on it, that I had stopped and gotten an HVAC tech certificate when I was there. At the time, I didn't understand what it was or why it would be valuable.)

Alternatively, of course, you can leave it for your heirs to deal with, along with your other stuff. However, since it's your money at the moment, you might as well find effective ways to use it for the benefit of things you care about.

ThyPeace, in the process of planning that myself because of an extra income stream (due to my mom's passing) that I had not expected.
