We'll be paying off the rest of my car, paying off the credit cards, and putting the rest in savings. I'm so looking forward to the extra money we'll have each month once I get rid of the car payment!

If we get one, it won't be much. (By design) It'll get dropped into household savings and that'll be that.
Potential Spring 2015 and Fall 2016 trips on the horizon, but who knows!

Admittedly, I am an odd-duck CPA who does not throw up at the general tax refund (assuming one doesn't have huge interest-bearing debt they could be paying off throughout the year) so I myself am getting a bit of refund this year - but man your tax refund must be the size of some people's paychecks if you are getting all that utility out of it! I mean, $50-100 each paycheck, I get how you could waste that away, but what you are talking about is some significant money!

Depending on what we get back...

1. Pay down some debt
2. Put some in savings
3. Get a new mattress set for DH & I
4. If anything is left, it will go towards this year's homeowners insurance bill

Mine is boring. My employer accidentally messed up some of my benefits, and it works out that I owe them a significant amount of money. So that's where the tax return is going. Anything else is going into savings to cover when I'm on maternity leave.

My RETURN is getting filed with the IRS and state tax department. I'm not sure what I'm doing with my REFUND yet.

We take a couple hundred to buy gift cards for date nights and movies we'll see through the year. Then half will go to DDs braces and half will go to our summer Disney trip.
