So dh and I usually get back about $8000.... Unfortunately this year we only got back a total of $2209

We split it down the middle half for me half for him

I spent $200 on the kids.... Shoes, socks, and underwear

The problem is..... I don't know what else to get. Lol

Help me by suggesting something's. I thought maybe a tattoo or new lense for my camera...

Pay off your debts, pay ahead on your bills, put some aside for savings... it's okay to have a little to spend, or splurge, but it's better to spend it wisely.

Are you financially stable the rest of the year?  Do you have at least 6 months in savings?  Can you afford Christmas and birthdays when the time comes?

You spent $200 on shoes socks and underwear for your kids? Just out of curiosity, how many kids do you have? That just seems like a lot of money for just those things.

Spend 200 on the kids and bank the rest otherwise you will be crying the blues in a few months about how broke your "behind is"
