TurboTax has a great focus when it comes to maximum refund, guaranteed*. The app is free, and online filing is really affordable, and there are SO MANY things you can do with your refund! I actually look forwards to tax filing time, because I have my withholdings set to get a modest refund every year and there's always something I end up wanting to use that money on.
In the past, I've used my refund to help pay for a vacation. We usually rent a beach house for the week, and take my parents. In my mind, making memories always trumps buying more STUFF, so we opt to spend money traveling. My kids have so many great memories of our beach trips to our favorite spot, St. George Island- biking around the island on the paved bike paths, swimming a mere stone's throw from dolphins, kayaking around the bay, biking into the center of the island for some ice cream and fresh-baked bread. We even love hopping in the car and riding over to a quaint little town by the name of Appalachicola, which is very walking-friendly and boasts many wonderful stores built into converted old stone-walled sponge warehouses. My daughter actually learned to ride a bike without training wheels on one of our beach trips- I'll never forget her riding down the street past driveways made of white crushed oyster shells!
Now that my kids are teens, they're not as into beach trips, so what we spend our tax return on has changed a little. I'm still very invested in the idea of memory building, and to that end we spent some on a camping trip to Georgia so my kids could explore the areas that The Walking Dead has been filmed. We went just a couple of weeks ago, and it will be a memorable trip for sure, considering that it rained the first two days we were there, the pop-up leaked, the space heater quit working, and it was COLD! But we got it all sorted out in the end and ended up having a great time. It is so fun to see the sets in person, and now when we watch the show we all recognize the areas that are on our screens!
The other thing we decided to do with our return this year is to buy some much-needed lawn equipment. For some reason we have always had a disastrous time with lawnmowers. We've generally gotten ours second-hand and they inevitable have serious problems every single year. This year, after much research, we've opted to buy a battery-powered electric mower BRAND NEW, which is such a rarity for us! I'm almost as excited as my husband is- he is pretty much over the moon at the idea of having a new mower and one that doesn't need gas, oil, or anything else to have to deal with. My kids, not so much, but doubtlessly this will be memory-making for them as well since they'll be using the mower a lot too!
