BTT: Windfall

Booking Through Thursday: Windfall

Yesterday, April 15th, was Tax Day here in the U.S., which means lots of lucky people will get refunds of over-paid taxes.

Whether you’re one of them or not, what would you spend an unexpected windfall on? Say … $50? How about $500?

(And, this is a reading meme, so by rights the answer should be book-related, but hey, feel free to go wild and splurge on anything you like.)

Wow, wish I had that much refund. Last one I had was a little over $10, so it wasn’t really much. πŸ˜› I don’t remember what I spent it on.

If ever I get a tax refund, what I’ll use it on will depend on the amount I’ll get. If it’s small, I’ll probably add it to my daily budget. If it’s a rather big amount, I’ll definitely splurge on some books, maybe a few toys or some new gadget. Then again, I’ll probably end up using it for food… and books. πŸ™‚


  1. $10? Psh.. that barely covers a Starbucks order! Ah well… at least you didn’t owe, though.I’d definitely have to think about getting a deep freezer and filling it with groceries… especially meat when it’s on sale.

  2. Me too, I probably spent it on food or books. And it doesn’t hurt to get some great gadget…but of course depending on amount.Happy BTT!

  3. I was very happy with my refund, but then we always pay such a huge amount of taxes here.But will be good and save it *coughs* might spend some on shoes πŸ˜‰
