This year instead of owing money to the IRS, the Mr. and I actually going to get a pretty decent tax refund. Woo hoo!
If I was a single, non-home-owning, spendthrift, 20-something gal this is what I'd buying with my tax refund...
White Dress from Nordstrom, Yellow Dress from Nordstrom, Work Outfit from Banana Republic, Coral Dress from J. Crew, Juicy Swimsuit,
Second row: Marc Jacobs Wallet, Joan and David Shoe, Betsy Johnson Sunglasses, Tori Burch Sandals
That's right, I'd be going on a huge shopping spree for me!
But instead I'm a married, home-owning, decently-frugal, 20-something gal.
So this is what we're doing with our refund...
Donating the "first fruits" to our local Church
Installing a tile backsplash in our kitchen
(I'm hoping this is actually an "investment" and ends up paying us back when we sell our condo.)
And paying down some higher interested school loans we have.
Pretty boring and practical, huh?
But don't worry there are a couple of fun things that we're going to buy...
Like an Apple iPad!
(I'm so excited to bring this to Europe with us!)
This swimsuit from Victoria's Secret
This dress (or a similar one) from Nordstrom to wear to my friend's wedding
This is our first tax refund we've ever gotten as a couple, so it's kind of fun discussing how we'll spend the money together -- balancing priorities, etc.
Are you getting a tax refund this year? If so, how are you going to spend it? Or will you save it? If married, are you and your hubby on the same page as to what to do with your refund?
