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!

Putting money in the stock market. Currently doing some research on which I can afford and who has the best turnover rates.

Bills.  We had to finance part of our new furnace so we'll be paying that off.

The woman in the avi pic is not me, she is my inspiration.  I am a wife, a mother, and an aspiring trainer and nutritionist. I love seeing people get fit and healthy to lead the lives they are meant to live.

Hopefully using part of it as a deposit on a new apartment and paying off bills with the rest

Hopefully paying off our truck and bills any left will go in savings.

Highest interest debt is the smartest use.

I spend a small portion of it, then put the rest away into savings.
