|Posted: 2/1/2013 3:03:00 PM|We just handed our taxes over to be done and I'm curious if I'm the only one going to use some of the refund on scrappy stuff. I'm still building my stash so there is soooo much I want and "need" plus I don't get to shop a lot for stuff so I'm excited. So im in need of ideas lol What do you plan on getting?

I'm really hoping to get to use some of my tax return for some things but we are using it for spring break and I don't know if we will have enough left over for anything else. since my husband's hours got cut in November things have been tight and my scrappy budget is way too tiny lol. so I've fingers crossed that my tax return will be big enough for at least a small order here for some of the new things coming out

Grrr! If we get a refund it will pay down last year's and the year before's tax debt! Don't know yet what this year holds.

If I got a refund I would buy scrappy stuff. We usually break just about even.

I have a kid and a house and I don't get a refund.
Hopefully I won't have to pay too much this year as I adjusted my withholding but I owed the past two years. If I got a refund, I would just adjust my withholding again!

Taxes refund, what's that?

Not this time gotta pay a huge bill down. Start writing your want list now so you are ready when you get it.

I hope to get a new job soon so I can use my tax return for some scrappy stuff if not it will just go to pay everyday kind of bills and a few new spring clothes for the dd's.

I would invest in a really good cutter. Thinking about a Cutterpillar.

We normally get a refund but not sure about this year since we made about 20,000 more this year than normally. But if we do it will be put towards our 1st trip to WDW this coming September. The kids have been saving and so are we so any refund goes toward that.

|Posted: 2/1/2013 8:57:09 PM|Usually I take a pretty big chunk of it and spend it on scrapbooking supplies but I think I'm going to limit myself this year. We have several bills that need to be paid off before we go on any kind of spending spree. But yes - I imagine some of it will end up going to 2peas. lol

Our taxes will be electronically filed by our tax attorney Monday morning.
We should have our refund by
the 18th at the latest.
I won't be spending any of it on scrapping stuff even though there are quite a few things I really want.
I will be saving it for some dental work DS will need next December.

Putting in the bank to assist in paying bills when DH gets furlough. 30 days without pay is going to hurt BIG TIME!
Yes, I do expect that we will have Federal shut-downs, and federal employee furloughs.

I mean, part of the added amount to our refund this year will be because I gave birth to another child in 2012. It's only fair that I get something with the money for my effort, right?

We'll be using part of our refund to go to WDW in April, to visit our son who is in the Disney College Program.
While there, I'll probably buy some scrappy stuff from the parks that he likes, so that I will have a stockpile to scrap the hundreds of pictures he's already taken since January 7th, and the hundreds more to come!

We decided to each take $100 and do what we want with that. The rest will be going into Savings. Its more then I thought originally, but with hubbys job I didn't want to end up having to pay a bunch at the end of the year either. Not in a position right now to have to dish $$ back out

We do what JamieMN does. Savings for the majority and some to each of us or a joint item/event.
