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!

Paying off our vehicle loan, and a few bills. Working on my credit, and I've finally got it to a decent range, at least enough that I can get a loan for a house, but I've still got some debt that needs to be paid off from being young and stupid with credit cards. Nothing majorly high though, about $400, the more paid off the better!

A new home.  We live in a mobile home and I HATE it.  If the tax refund is not enough for the down payment, I would be willing to sell a kidney.  I want a real house that bad.
