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!

IF we get a return it will go towards things that will save us money, like an inexpensive car (instead of his truck) for dh to drive to work or insulation for the attic.

Mine is buying a cheapish car. Currently I don't have one. Walking four miles to worn then four miles back at like midnight is kind of cold. And my son and I are moving in my my parents. I'm hoping that ill have enough for a deposite for an apartment. And the rest goes to whatever my son needs, not wants.

We're spending ours towards in vitro.  So it's not saving or anything but it does mean a lot to me and we're not just blowing it on junk.

I guess using it to pay down debt is the best idea.  Then go to you employer and your DH/SO employer and update your info so that less taxes are kept out of your paychecks and you have your money to use throughout he year....not having to get it back at the end of the year.
