Tax Return Time!

It’s that time of year again, Tax Return Time! Time to gather all your documents and head for your accountant’s office. (or if you’re lucky like me- hand them to your accountant hubby)  With expected tax return money it’s a good idea to have a plan of attack if you want to make sure to get the most for your money, make it last longer, etc.
I saw a short video clip of Tony Robin talking about how Anticipation is power- here’s the clip:

I love that! When we anticipate something, we plan for it, we prepare for it, we map out how we will handle it.  Versus reacting- when we react it’s impulse, not thought through, and can be detrimental.

So with a large amount of money coming your way via tax return it’s a good time to anticipate and plan your spendings.

Some things to consider-

What will make you more money?
What will improve your life?
What is a large purchase you’ve put off?
Do you need food storage or preparation items?
Do you have a savings/nest egg?
Do you have upcoming expenses? (child’s college, wedding, downpayment on a house, etc)

And it’s okay to splurge a little, go on that extravagant date with the hubby, buy some clothes or things you don’t really need but want, etc.- but set a budget for yourself and stick to it!  🙂
