I finished our 2015 taxes today. We are getting back $2460 for federal and $265 from state. Y and I have talked about what we will do and come to an agreement. We will split $2000. He is free to do what he wants with his but he knows that I'm against him buying reloading equipment for safety reasons.
I had to think really hard about what I want to do with mine. Usually if I want clothes or shoes, they come out of our regular budget. The one splurge that I would like is to hire a designer to finish my house. I want to hire a main wall painted. I also need a little help finishing off the design. I'm naturally a minimalist but its a fine line to decorate as a minimalist. I don't do knick knacky things and I don't want my walls to look cluttered. I'm going to enlist my friend to paint and we will see where to go from there. A friend of mine told me about an online design service.
