What did people do with their $1,200 stimulus money?

I have personally been curious to what people did with the $1,200 stimulus checks they received earlier this year.  More than half of the people who received checks used it to pay down debt while another one third saved their check.   One of the major goals for these checks was to help spur economic activity via consumer spending which is one of the driving forces of the U.S. economy.   So, it appears that only approximately 15% of people who received checks used the funds for this purpose.  We await to see if there will be more stimulus after the last round.
