    Default Refund Money??

    What do you do with your money that you get from refunds? Do you just deposit back into your account and do you save it up for something special? I have been just depositing mine or just cashing the checks, but I thought I might save it up for the holidays or maybe savings bonds for ds?

    What do you do with yours?

    So far I've been using them as part of the grocery budget or for buying stamps.

    I try and put it away, but I usually end up spending it on something that I was not able to buy with my budget.

    I try to use mine to pay down my debt. Sometimes I cheat and buy something we need with it. I prefer to use it on the debt.

    I put it into checking. My thought is that if I spend it on something else, then the item wasn't really free. So, it goes into checking to pay the bill that I charged it on in the first place.
