smart moves with your tax refund
January 1, 2013 at 8:59 PM

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!

    That's what we do.


    We boring, lol


    Quoting PEEK05:

    We don't splurge with our return.  We pay several months of rent in advance, pay off all monthly bills that have premiums (such as car insurance), and put the rest in savings. :)

    Moving and paying rent a few months in advanced.

    We've been living with my mom for a while now and are so excited to be able to move out finally! We want to use our refund to pay off several months of rent and most of our car. Yay!!

    Paying off some debt. Then using the money I save from those bills every month to make bigger payments on our other debt. My goal for this year is to try to get out of debt and stay out of it.

    We usually put it into savings. Then we use it to pay various bills throughout the year, mostly insurance.
