I know it' suuuuper tempting to go on a mini spending spree when you get a nice tax return. But this year let's be wise with our money.
Here are a few ideas so that you can maximize your tax refund this year:
- Pay off some bills - certainly not the most exciting thing to so with your extra cash, but one of the most practical.
- Save it - there is nothing that will help you sleep better than knowing you have a financial cushion. Save that money for a rainy day. Or you could divide it up over the next 6 to 12 months so you have a little breathing room.
- Make some memories - odds are 10 years from now your kids will not remember the big screen t.v. you bought, but they will remember the awesome family vacation you took. It could even be a mini vacation to someplace local.
- Switch phone plans - do you know how much you can save by switching to the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS Plan?
Think about it. How much are you paying for your current phone plan? I bet its more than $49.88 per month per line.
I totally suggest taking a portion of your tax cash to get started with the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS Plan.
My kids are usually pretty well behaved. But for some reason whenever I take them grocery shopping they turn into little monsters! One of the ways I've been able to save my sanity and keep them put in the cart is to let them watch my phone. As you can imagine, that uses up a lot of data. The Walmart family Mobile PLUS Plan includes Unlimited* talk, text, & data (*includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE† data then 2G). They also have some really great affordable phones to choose from. I recently picked up the Samsung Galaxy On5 which is regularly $119.00.
Since Family Mobile PLUS Plan bills you later, you only have to pay $19.88 when you sign up. Then you get Unlimited* Talk, Text, and Data for $49.88 per month per line (*includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE† data then 2G). With that you also get a free VUDU movie rental ($7 value which is the same as a new release rental) every month per line. Since you can use the VUDU free rental on any of your devices, we like to use ours for family movie night on our SmartTV. We're going to include a fun ice cream bar for our next movie night.
Even with buying a new Samsung Galaxy On5 for $119, and getting started on your new plan for only $19.88 you'd still have plenty of your tax cash to pay some bills, save a little, and make some memories.
So, what are you going to do with your refund?
