Every year, I get a tax refund. I plan it that way. My friend DP is appalled by that. He firmly believes that you shouldn’t pay more than you owe. Ever. I get that it’s my money and that I’m lending it to the government for free. But really, if I saved that money, what kind of interest would I really be earning? Even if interest rates were good, I’d still want a refund. To me, it’s like bonus money.
This year, I’m being responsible with most of it. But I did take some of it and get something I’ve wanted for a long time.
A Kindle Fire!!
I’m writing this post on the WordPress app on it right now. It’s not easy as a computer, but it’s pretty handy. Plus I’ve already started reading a book on it over lunch, which was great. I love the portability of it. So much easier than a big book!
So I’m excited. I think this is going to be great, especially if I have downtime at the studio and over lunch. This was a good buy for me.
Even if it means the government got my money for free last year.
