We used some of it to buy tickets to the Nascar race in Daytona over 4th of July weekend, but the rest is in savings for when we go to Florida and to help pay for the mortgage on my house that we are trying to sell!  Some for fun, but most for mortgage!!

1) Paying off our credit card. Again. We really need to stop using that thing.

2) Paying off our ceremony venue or our photographer.

3) Anything that is left will go into our savings account.

We are also waiting on money from the death of my Fiance grandmother that occured a year or two ago. This process seems to be dragging on. We both agree that we would rather not receive money and be able to just move on but everytime the family seems to make headway another legal issue pops up and drags everyone back into heartache 🙁 With that money, we will pay off our wedding, replenish our savings account after buying a house, pay off my car, and Fiance will have a couple thousand dollars to blow on fun stuff. I think he is planning on tearing up carpeting and finishing our hardwood floors.

Part of it went for paying for the invites.  Part of it went for a $600 camera lens.  Rest of it is for helping pay for the wedding.

Paying bills for the next couple months… I’m so much fun Undecided There should be 200-300 leftover and I’m thinking of buying Fiance a PS3 for our anniversary, but I really should put the money towards savings or paying down CC debt.

We usually set up our finances in a way that we don’t get much of a refund, ($200-$300 at most.)  Getting a refund means you paid too much taxes.  In other words,  you gave the government an interest free loan with your money and now they are repaying it.  We try to set up our withholdings in a way that we come out as close to $0 refund as possible because that means we got full use of our money.  Actually Suzie Ormond says it’s better if you actually owe some taxes (fwe hundred), because then you are the one to get an interest free loan from the government.

Fi is not getting anything back this year.  If I get anything it’ll just go towards the wedding.
