When do you start planning what to do with your tax refund?

This year I started planning and making "carts" at different places online.  After that and everything else we have to do, we're broke.  So I am already planning what I am buying next year also, lol.

  • We don't do anything with our tax return. usually we put it in savings and then use some of it for vacation, although this yer we are working on an addition so I am sure part of it will go to that.

  • We used last years to pay off our car...hoping we even get one this year...I have learned to not be too hasty in "planning" to blow the money so early :) much better to have a cushion

  • Months in advance, but we have been planning on using it to pay off one of our vehicles, hopefully our truck, but if theres not enough we will just pay off the car and use that payment to help finish paying off the truck sooner.

  • I start thinking about it in early Dec. We normally buy a few things for the house and the rest goes to savings. Same this year :)

  • i use alot for the same things every year, like kids school clothes for the year, new tires on vehicle, so much aside for things we need around house and so much aside for our vacation. but all year long there are things that add to my shopping list

  • When I find out how much we are getting, I think we are just going to pay off some bills. Next year we will use it to pay for pre-k

  • I dont think about it till the end of the year. My DF and I are getting married feb 2012 so our refunds are going to the bank until then.
