Tax season is upon us and if you are lucky, you will be getting a tax refund! I personally like dividing my tax refund into two groups, the fun group and the responsible group.
You know that you should be responsible and use your tax refund toward paying off debt, saving for college, or saving for retirement. You also need to remember the fun ways to spend your tax refund so that you can reward yourself for all of your hard work.
I find that when I constantly save, it can be exhausting if I don’t treat myself every once in a while. That is what I use my tax refund for. Half of it goes toward something responsible and the other half goes toward something fun that myself or my family can enjoy.
Here are a few fun ways to spend your tax refund this year.
I work hard all day throughout the year. It is mandatory when you are a mom to a little one! I like using some of my tax refund to treat myself to a spa or luxury day.
For a couple hundred dollars I will treat myself to a massage, mani/pedi, or facial. I usually take advantage of the child-free time and get my hair done as well.
Afterwards, I will stop by Starbucks and enjoy a coffee that I get to drink uninterrupted!
A great way to spend your tax refund is to put it towards your yearly vacation. We like to take one big vacation a year and this will cover most of the costs.

My fiance is a gadget nerd, he likes to have the newest technology. One of our favorite brands for electronics is Samsung. We have Samsung phones, tablets, and a Samsung flat screen TV.
We actually used some of our tax refund to get the TV a couple of years ago and it was a decision the whole family was happy with.
My favorite deal on the Walmart site is for the Samsung 49″ 7000 series 4K Ultra HD Smart LEDTV. It is on sale for almost half off the list price!
I am actually in need of a new phone, I currently have the Samsung Galaxy S5 and I am hoping to get a new one for my birthday. I am going to make sure my fiance knows that he can save $100 on several Samsung phones at Walmart.
I love that Walmart has all of these amazing Samsung products available just in time for tax refunds. I shop at Walmart for everything anyway, might as well hop over to the electronics section to check out all of the deals!
If your home is in need of an upgrade, you may want to use some of your refund to update the look of your home. There are so many ways to update your kitchen without renovating.
You can get some new paint for the living room, new mirrors in the bathroom, or new furniture for your outdoor living space.
There are so many great deals going on that now is the perfect time to add some life back into the look of your home.
I love doing one or two of these ideas each year. It is fun to reward yourself for working so hard and saving throughout the year.
Make sure to check out Walmart for your electronic and home improvement needs. They always have great prices and this time of year is no exception.
