I totally disagree with all of these “suggestions”!!!  Smart Ways to Spend Your Tax Refund – Many people say they are being responsible with their refunds: 42% plan to use the money to pay down debt and cover bills and 25% plan to save it, according to a 2012 survey by TurboTax. Others are splurging: 15% of taxpayers plan to treat themselves to a vacation or shopping. But advisers say that even if you’ve done everything right—you have an emergency fund, no debt and are maxing out your retirement account contributions—you might want to reconsider spending the refund on a 70-inch TV or a cruise. Here are some of their suggestions.  (Yahoo Finance)

  1. I read the bottom article about spending your tax refund. Unfortunately, this year I have to use mine to pay off my credit card (I had a big last two months–ouch!). But usually, I don’t have to do that. It was interesting to see what they suggested. I thought–home improvements or a car are the ways I would have gone this year if I could have. I figure, I’m doing responsibly with my investing and if I had no bills and no debt, I would at least want to use it on one of those two things. I feel I want a reward every once in a while. But alas! I’m only dreaming since I just have to pay off my credit card this year.
    Hope everything is going well with you!
