Windfall

btt button

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.)

  11. No answer on my blog this week, because my answer is short and basic: we usually use it to pay off some debts or to finance a special house project or need. We usually give some portion of it away to a special cause or need.

  12. My post is up. Happy BTT everyone.

  20. The reality is that we would probably spend the money on bills but it was fun to pretend!

  21. I realized we can use our refund to buy something bookish that we were going to spend money on anyway. Hooray!

    My answer.

  23. Not very bookish, but my answer is here: http://yourlibrarycard.blogspot.com/2009/04/splurges.html. Happy BTT, all, and may your wildest dreams come true!

  24. Interesting question. My answer is here.

  25. I’m anxious to see what you would spend it on, if we could grab it back out of the hands that hold it…mine is here:

  29. My bookish wishlist is here.

  30. Mine is nothing fun….It’s here

  31. I’d buy shoes or books for me…but the reality of it is, I’d buy books for my five children or shoes or toys.

    It seems like I find myself always shopping for things my children likes, even if I set out to shop just for me.

  32. Not a book related answer, but since I already spent my refund, I didn’t feel like I could just make up something else I’d spend the money on.

  33. A little late, but here is mine, plus a little extra on what (non-tax) money I lately DID spend on books.
