If you are expecting a tax refund, start thinking about what you will do with the money. The best plan for the refund is to save it. But, there may be some much-needed things that the refund can take care of that you have been putting off due to low cash flow. Here are a few uses for your refund:
--->Home repairs: gutters, painting, new appliances
--->New set of tires or any upkeep for the car
--->Family vacation: spring break, summer vacation, camp
Now is the time to give some thought to just how you will use the refund before it arrives in the mail or checking account. Keep in mind that the 'rainy day' fund comes in mighty handy in a pinch. Save for It!
