What are you spending your tax return on? Yourself? Kids? Bills? Household stuff?

I'm getting back a bit more than I had anticipated, and I really WANT to buy something nice for me and my hunny, but don't know if I can justify it to myself. We haven't given each other gifts in over 2 years because of money being tight and I almost feel we deserve a little something, but I know I could find a million ways to use the money around and on the house and bills. I'm torn up....

  • we are filing b/c so, we cant have ours,,,, we are OBVIOUSLY broke, and were going to use that to pay the attorney, but i am not complaining bcuz we are getting out of debt and keep our house!!!!!!! we usually pay bills anyway but we buy clothes and things we need. we will just have to wait, it WILL be worth it in the end, still sucks though. i guess life is a trade off, this one isnt a bad one.
