I have a meeting with my accountant in 2 weeks but I generally get 4-5k back. i claim 1 of the kids and mortgage interest and all the write offs I can.

I have decided I a doing this:

Get my car tuned yup and probably new tires (need to allow about $750 for this)

Getting a new bed and mattress and redoing my boring bedroom. I found a cool platform bed and headboard, and need a new matress. Also found some cool rose themed artwork and a rug I want.

Having a guy come over and rehang my tv's so the ghetto wiring doesn't show

A new computer and printer. Nothing expensive need something decent for my kids to do homework on, and an office chair.

I think thats it for now.

 We don't need anything, so I save what I get back.

I can't wait to see a picture of your bedroom when it all comes together!

Can I see the bed, artwork and rug now? Any pics online?
