Nope, I dislike it. It's all going towards bills. The excitement of having bills paid in advance for a month will wear off, and come March... I'll be sad again :lol:

Does anyone do anything special? Like each year during tax time we find the best, most expensive restaurant for me and SO to go to..a much needed date lol. I am looking forward to that for sure.

Quoting *B & D Mommy*:" That is another thing we are going to do..get a new couch! Just from like a second hand store though because it will get ruined fast from our dog ugh lol"



Same here. I bought a couch for $400 from Weekends Only a few years back after I won $810 at bingo and the damn thing starting falling apart quickly. I just found a real nice red suede chair at Goodwill a couple weeks ago, so I'm just going to keep looking there. I'd much rather spend like $50-$100 then $400.

Aww lol! We always love tax time though even though a lot goes towards bills because we always get behind during holidays and my sons birthday.
