smart moves with your tax refund

Posted by   + Show Post

tax season is right around the corner, and for those of us who are getting a return, anticipating spending is a must! I was wondering what some of you will be doing with your chunk of change to get some fresh ideas for myself....ya know, besides splurging on a new car, clothes etc. I'm over all of that and can wait for those things when I am able to afford them. Right now, I'm trying to move my family and myself forward, not stay stuck in the present!

My car was totaled from sandy. I still have some payments on it cause I didn't have gap insurance. So I will be putting a down payment on a new car, and a trip to Aruba.

I have a couple thousand saved up and I'm taking my refund and putting it with it for a new to me car. Next year provided car is good shape etc I will put my tax money away in savings along with the money I plan to save every month.

Hoping to finally afford a car. Last year i had enough and before i had a chance to look my grams passed. I used most of the money for a rental to fit a lot of family in and clothes since we dont own nice clothes. Came to about $2000. So i gave the rest to my mom to pay for bills.
