Five FUN Things To Do With Your Tax Refund – Part 2
How many times in your life have you been given money just to have fun with? Although our recommendation is to use your tax refund as an investment in retirement, savings, college etc. Here are some suggestions if you are looking to SPEND it on something more fun! It was hard to narrow down, but here are five FUN things to do with your tax return…if you insist!
No. 1 – Take A Trip – Five Fun Things To Do With Your Tax Return
This one is probably the most obvious! There is something so special about being able to take a trip. Use the opportunity to visit an out-of-town friend, see something you have always wanted to or chase some sunshine! Another fun idea is to do a destination 5k or triathlon. A wonderful way to challenge your body and enjoy yourself.
No. 2 – Give Some Away
Doing what is in your heart is a great way to have some fun. If you don’t feel compelled to a cause or someone in need, then no pressure to take on this idea. But if the idea of loving on someone warms you heart, this is an excellent opportunity!
No. 3 – Upgrade Your Furniture
This would be fun for me, but if it doesn’t make you smile, discard the idea! There are two main reasons people purchase new furniture. The first is that something is actually worn out, but the second is that they want to redecorate or try a new style. With most furniture starting in the hundreds, if not thousands, this can be a pricey whim! A chunk of money you are intending for fun may be the perfect way to upgrade or up-level your living space.
No. 4 – Spoil A Loved One Or Friend
This could be a spa day with your sister or a special meal or activity with your parents. A shopping spree with a close friend or some concert tickets for your significant other are some additional ideas. The sky is the limit with this one!
No. 5 – Do Something REALLY Frivolous – Five Fun Things To Do With Your Tax Refund
By this, I mean something really luxurious that you would NEVER normally do for yourself. Obviously, it is completely dependent on your habits and interests, but here are a few ideas:
- Club level seats at a baseball or basketball game
- A five course dinner at an amazing restaurant
- An amazing coat, pair of boots or luxury handbag
