5 Smart Ways to Spend Your Tax Refund Money

How to spend your Tax Money

IF YOU’RE EXPECTING a tax refund this year, you need a good plan for your money. Always remember that the government isn’t sending you a bonus check – it’s money that should have been yours all along. In fact if you’re receiving a huge refund, you’re probably having too much withheld. Be sure to revisit your W-4 form and adjust your federal income tax withholding allowances.
Getting a refund check somtimes feel like winning the lotterry – a very small loterry. Just like lottery winners, it’s easy to get caught up on all the things you will want to have right away, and before you know it, you’ve already spent more than your expected refund – in your mind. Don’t get caught treating your refund check any differently than you’d treat your weekly or monthly paycheck.
Give the money a purpose. By the way, don’t just let it sit in your checking account because before you know it, it will all be gone through your routine expenses such as entertainment, bills, shopping, and much more. Before you know it, you’ll have nothing to show for the refund. Continue reading

Bananas Foster Cake

For those of you that aren’t familiar with Bananas Foster, it’s an awesome dessert, where sliced bananas are cooked in a bubbling pan of dark brown sugar, butter, rum and cinnamon and served over ice cream. I’ve tried to capture the creamy goodness in my take on this classic dessert (which also tastes great with ice cream J.)  This recipe makes a 3 layer cake. As you can see from my picture I only made a 2 layer cake. I added dark chocolate chips to the remaining batter and made banana choc chip cupcakes! Just frost with chocolate frosting and you’re good to go !

Enjoy!
