    We got about 1,000 between federal and state. Since my husband just got off of a the week break at work we used most of it on books. Then I bought the pair of Danskos (on sale of course)because I needed better work shoes.

    Not very exciting

    Yup. we're not getting much back either. We typically owe several thousand each year... this is the first year in a long while that we are getting a return, which will be around $60.

    Because of my husband's job as a pastor, he has to make estimated quarterly payments instead of having any withheld from his paycheck. This first year, to be on the safe side, we greatly overestimated how much we would need to pay. So we are getting a very nice chunk back. We have a few projects around the house that we would like to possibly use it for.

    I used part of mine to pay for airfare and tickets to Disney World this summer.

    Ugh, I got 700 back and drive myself crazy trying to think of where it all went. A nice chunk went into getting new glasses, a little went into savings and no small amount went to hair care products.

    I paid off one of my credit cards and bought a new Nikon camera.

    Whatever I get back will probably just end up replacing what I pay in city taxes. I don't work in the city I live in, so I have to pay city taxes separately each time.

    If for some unknown reason there's anything left, it'll probably just go into savings.

    Any money we get back is going into savings. We'd like to buy a house sometime in the next year.
