Have you made a wish list for your tax *refund*?

AFTER I pay all of my bills and set some money aside, I have quite a few things that I want to spend money on. I need some things for the house and would like to pamper myself a bit. Also, I want to buy my kids some clothes and things that they want. I'm trying to decide if I want to tell them a dollar amount that or if I should just tell them they can pick something out and veto it if the price is too high. Last year was a rough year for me financially and I barely got them anything for Christmas. Yes, I'm trying to make up for that.

  • I am in the process of helping my oldest daughter put one together. It's bills, needs, wants... and I am putting back at least $1,500.00 to help her save it. LOL!

  • yep...its a pretty detailed list. most is going towards savings (and will be gone around Aug, sigh), the rest is for debt & a little is for fun spending.

  • For once, we're getting some money back. I am going to apply it to the principle on our mortgage. That's usually where I put our extra money, because I'm trying to kill the loan as quickly as possible.

  • I'm supposed to be making a list today. We are saving a good bit, setting up savings accounts for each child, DH's truck needs tires, paying off one of DH's student loans. That's about it so far.
