Kiddo+school= unpredictable tax season. I try to guess how many exemptions but it gets pretty messy so I always err on the “no penalty” side. We are investing whatever comes back.

Well…I haven’t gotten mine yet, but I’m hoping to spend it on a new bedroom set, a new stove, student loan debt and the rest in savings.

Came and gone already. Was deposited into my checking a few days ago and I just wrote out a check for the full amount to my guy to put in our wedding account. Was nice while it lasted!

Honeymoon! I earn little and get little back, but that extra $500 will make a honeymoon more possible. Here’s hoping my Fiance gets a refund this year! (dreaming of a beach vay-cay 🙂 )

Gifts for both the BM’s and the Groomsmen.  Fiance didn’t get a return, and I got a good one, so I’m buying his boys’ gifts.  And paying off his ring.  And flying to TN for one of my showers.  I’m hoping to have enough to buy some cute stuff for the honeymoon, but it’s not looking like it.

I owe around $750, so no fun stuff for me. Sad.

Used the big federal return for my two credit cards that had some on them still, woot! One less bill to pay every month!  Also did a little investing in some new running shoes and workout gear.  WELL worth it.   I think I’ll do something fun or wedding related with the state return.. we shall see.

@Miss Root – Love the shoes!  Great use of the refund.

For myself, credit card and savings.  Seems to be the theme around here!

Property taxes. Blah. I can’t stand the fact that our house is not in escrow. But he bought it before we were married and I think everyone in his family does it this way.

Our cruise in July! Paid off the balance so all we need to do is save up for booze! We also just enjoyed having extra spending money for a few weeks. Went out, had drinks, ordered in a few nights. Those little things made us super happy!

this year my refund and my profit sharing check from my job both fall on the same day (i’ve never been so anxious for it to be friday..3 days away!) so i am splurging on a cricut that i’ve been drooling over. depending on how frisky i’m feeling there may be a mac book in my immediate future as well. Fiance just got one and i’m totally jealous over how much better his laptop works than my pc =(  we’ll also go out to dinner without having to worry about coupons or deals. the rest will go into savings.

Well, I got my tax return check back. $4. Awesome. I’m going to take that bad boy and buy myself a happy meal from McDs.
