I Buy Myself Presents With My Tax Return Money

    One Thing

    I don't go on a shopping spree and waste it all but I do get me at least one thing I really want. This year was a new camera! Not exactly what I was hoping for but it does the trick. Maybe next year I'll get the really good one but I doubt it... too cheap!

    Its Fun

    We dont splurge most all year. We do have a bit more tax taken out than necessary. We file near the beginning of Feb and get back a sizeable refund and it goes streight towards a Carib/other Cruise. During that 2 or 3 week cruise we live like a Feudal King and Queen. Ahhhh.

    This Year...

    I've estimated my tax refund to be around $1,000. This was using approximate numbers on a free income tax program (because I didn't have all my papers and stuff handy). I'm thinking, either an iPhone, iPod, or really fancy Blackberry...and perhaps a DSi when it comes out. The...

    & My Family Of Course!

    Every year we say we're going to do the smart thing with our tax refund; pay some bills off, put money away, etc. NOPE! Well, we usually pay some bills, but blow the most of it on ourselves. Plan for this year, I'm getting my lucky #13th tattoo! Yay!
