Did My Taxes - I Get More Back This Year

March 5th, 2012 at 05:44 pm

$3,600 back on my federal taxes. I am so pleased

Got my April mortgage payment already set up and paid some of my March bills already - they mailed the bills early.

Whenever I don't spend all of what I budgeted for utilities and monthly costs, I put the extra money in my Emergency Unemployment Fund - and this month I had 80 to put in that fund. I'm also spending less on food and restaurants, so I hope to see some savings in that category too.

Purchased a new computer and got a Best Buy Master Card - it lets you pay over time with no interest and I just mailed my first payment of $340 (Computer was $780). I should have just put it on another credit card where I get money back, and I find myself nervous not having paid the whole price in cash. My inner frugalista alarms are going off.

Paid last month's credit card bill late and called and Citi forgave the late fee. The only money I have spent on this card is the $3.82 in interest I just paid.

Puppies broke into the bookcase and ate bird books - Maybe they are bird dogs. Pictures of North American Birds were tossed all over the backyard. The puppy is getting longer and is such an affectionate creature when she's not trying to eat shoes, books and bedding. I love her to pieces.

    Nice that your tax return leads to a bigger payoff this year! We are still waiting to see what ours will be, but I am hoping for some insurance of a good return as well. Enjoy that new computer and good luck getting it paid off quickly!
