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!

We will be paying back our parents (they paid for the move from TX to NY so I could be with our families while DH deployed), and the rest will go towards paying off our car.

 We're paying off the remaining balance on DH's car and the rest will be put onto another bill. We want to buy a house in 2014 so we are doing what we can this year to pay off all the debt we can.

i am hoping we get approved for a 1st time home owners loan...if so it will be going towards a house. if not 75% of it will be going to my friends house so they dont foreclose on it.

Paying my mom back what I owe her , paying back property taxes that my ex stole and the rest is going into savings . After I pay the back property tax I will get a big return from them and I will buy a new sofa and table .

Paying bills off and get a few things for ourselves. Then what's left try to save as long as possible.
