Smarter Ways To Spend Your Tax Refund
Tax season is just about to be behind us and the refunds (if they haven't already) are about to come rolling in. That refund often feels like an extra bonus, even though deep down we down we know too much was taken out of our paycheck so it's not technically 'extra' but it still feels like it!
Spending that bonus money is easy, buy everything in your shopping cart instead of one item, treat yourself to a spa day....the options are endless! But what about some more "financially responsible" options that aren't boring?
1. Pay a good chunk of your credit card: you will feel so much better about life, your bills and debt once you make a payment that is significantly over your minimal amount due.
2. Car Maintenance: We know you have been putting off getting that check engine light fixed, the time is now! Your car gets you to your Bumble dates, you need it!
3. Home Improvements: take this as you may because it could include getting the chair you have in your West Elm shopping cart or fixing a broken sink. Either way your home is your safe place so take care of it because it is a reflection of you!
4. Wedding Expenses: The flights for bachelorette parties, gifts, destination weddings...being in or even going to a wedding adds up fast. Use your refund for purchases you know you are going to have to make no matter what.
