Tax Returns!

If you are receiving a tax return check, what do you plan on doing with it?  I plan on putting most of it in savings but also spending some of it on a massage :)

Between Federal and State, we got a pretty big chunk.  We bought new mattresses to go with the new bedroom furniture that we had been saving for.  The rest went into savings for when I'm off after the baby is born.

I was expecting to have to pay, but surprisingly I'm actually getting a $1500 refund.  (Guess the dramatic salary cut when I changed jobs did some good? lol)  It's probably going in the honeymoon fund.


I'm not saying that I mind getting a refund, but on the whole I'd rather owe a little than get a lot back...anything that you get back was an interest-free loan to the government, not free money they are randomly giving you that you didn't already earn.  I'd rather have had the $1500 this year to do what I wanted with than give it to the government for free for a few months, kwim? Better to get as close to breaking even with the government as possible.
