Are you getting anything fun with your taxes? We are basically just payingbills and ssaving it. Lol you know you're a grown up when paying off bills makes you excited. I'm sure the kids will get some new clothes, too, and a Zoo membership.

That's fun. 8) My hubby loves buying new furniture.

Quoting mjp2707:

Ours is spent. We furnished two rooms and got an iPad. We are saving 2000 for now.

We used ours to get new tires a few years ago. I have a large SUV so tires cost 1k by themselves, UGH!

Quoting Morgiesmom83:

I'm fixing my car, getting new tires and getting my laptop fixed.

It's a pain getting all the paper work together. Ugh!

Quoting toopicky429:

Probably nothing fun. Paying a few bills off and hopefully adding to savings so we can do something fun down the road. I have no idea what we will be getting back though. I still need to get all our stuff together for our accountant.

LOL Well, there is 'not having to choose' and then doing so anyway, if you see what I mean. No matter what you get back, some people will choose to blow it and some people will choose to save it or pay extra on a bill.

Quoting MJP76:

Usually owe or get back a very small amount. This year, we are getting back like 90.00. (Hubby did a rough estimate, but we haven't actually gotten everything we need yet to file). We haven't gotten back a large amount in over 8 years..

so the 90.00 will go in the bank, we typically don't have to choose between fun and bills....we just have fun whenever....

Basically the same as you. We each take $100 for clothes and then pay bill and renew my Zoo Membership. 

Is your membership for the Columbus Zoo?

I might do a little shopping spree for clothes myself. 8) The problem with having four kids is someone ALWAYS needs a new pair of jeans or shoes!

Quoting l0veliikeW0AHx3:

We're paying on some bills, getting a bigger vehicle if we can & getting everyone some much needed new wardrobes. Save the rest!

If I could get my husband to scan his receipts daily it would make my life so much easier, lol.
