What are you doing with your tax returns

What are you using your tax refunds for if you are expecting one?

Every year without fail we rack up our credit cards and then have to pay them off with our tax refunds. I swear this year is the last. We could use that money for a nice vacation or something! So this year it's paying off debt and saving a little for vacation in the fall.

  • Fingers crossed will be debt free by then (thank Dave Ramsey)
    So what we get back will go towards our emergency fund. I'm super excited to start working on that.

  • I wish we could use it for some fun stuff...but we're hoping to buy a different house this spring/summer so we'll need to sock it away to make a few minor repairs to this house to make it saleable, and do a few things to the new house before we move in.
