OT: I am planning to spend my tax refund on YARN~~!
I havent' even gotten my W2 's yet so I can file... I am expecting them by the 30th but I am already window shopping for more yarn online~~ I am visiting LittleKnits almost daily to see what else is on sale??~ I am already trying to decide how much YARN BUDGET to take from my refund...
I haven't even gotten an estimate of my refund yet ~~I think I have become a yarn addict??

DH and I are lucky enough to get a good bit back b/c I claim single and none since he is self-employed to help cover the cost of his taxes. At the end of the year we claim married and pick up dependents. This year will be nice b/c we did pretty well last year and now we have 11 months of house interest to write off too! WOOHOO!!! Next year, we'll add another dependent since little Aaron is scheduled to be here on Friday!

Unfortunately...we typically put our refund towards my student loans....this year I think we are going to pay of the remaining balance on my car. I'd love to spend it on yarn...or my yard!

We get a small one, but it'll go to the credit card.

Me too. With two teens playing travel sports, VISA and I are very close.

I should be getting at least a thousand dollars....maybe even $2000. I didn't find out that I wasn't supposed to be paying any taxes until like middle of the year, so my paychecks from July and onward are all tax-free, but I totally overpaid my taxes in the first half of the year. I'll probably use half of that for student loans and blow the other half on whatever I feel I "need" at the time.

Man! I wish I could blow mine on yarn...we're getting almost $3000, but between furnishing and making payments on our new house, I think my yarn budget's going to be gasping for air!
