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 also invest a portion, put a portion into emergency fund, put some in our kids' college funds, etc. Our return isn't get big but we also get dh's bonus end of February for his bday. He gets a large bonus plus both of our tax returns.
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. :)
