For months, I’ve heard friends discussing what they’d do with the income tax refunds they expected to receive.
One announced that his refund was going to be used to fix his leaky roof. Others said that they used the check sent by the IRS to repair a truck, pay off credit card debt, purchase a new refrigerator, television, computer, clothing. Some preferred to use the money on less practical items: a tropical vacation, tickets to a Broadway show, an excursion to a spa.
But now that my tax refund has arrived, and I have my windfall in hand, I’m not sure how to spend it all. Any suggestions?
