5 Fun Things to do With Your Tax Refund

This post was sponsored by Samsung as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. I’ve enjoyed sharing fun things to do with your tax refund.

I’m the type of person that LOVES to get my tax return done early! Why? Well because it’s extra money that I have to spend on things that I don’t usually get to spend money on.  My husbands and my income combined, along with VERY active teens (which only have part time jobs) cost us an arm and a leg.  So spending money on extras is not exactly a luxury throughout the year.  Are you on the lookout for fun things to do with your tax refund? I hope to inspire you with some of the things we do!

Walmart has a TON of Samsung electronics on sale at this time of year. Get that Home Audio System or Large Screen TV you’ve been dreaming of and create your own home theater! We are movie fanatics and LOVE watching on the BIG screen! Maybe you’d like to find recipes or hide out in the other room and read on a new tablet, while the kids play? Yep..Samsung has some fantastic buys.  I’m a bit of a Samsung fan.  We’ve purchased Samsung products FOREVER and LOVE them! We are a totally techie family and love being able to purchase just what we need with our tax refund. Here are a few great buys…

DAV- Soundbar ~ Wireless Subwoofer (HW-KM36/ZA) helps you to enjoy cinematic sound for a more immersive experience. It features TV SoundConnect to make it easy to set up with just one push of a button. I love the compact size of this!



Tab E 9.6 ~ Great portable entertainment – The Galaxy Tab E was made to go wherever you go and do whatever you want to do. You can watch a movie with the family at home to reading a best seller at the coffee shop, the big, bright screen keeps everyone entertained….Wi-Fi connection required.

UHD TV  ~ 4K resolution means everything you watch looks 4x sharper than Full HD. Whoosh!


Go on a clothing shopping Spreee: We see this one outfit that is just PERFECT for that one occasion during the year and have to pass it up, due to money constraints. NOW is the time.  You may not find the “exact” outfit, jeans, top…BUT I’ll bet you can find something similar. Just go for it. You will feel SO GOOD for the rest of the year as you find a piece that fits perfectly with the rest of your wardrobe.

Plan the rest of the years day trips: Where have you been dying to go but simply couldn’t quite fit it into your budget?  This is a time to write down those adventures and calculate how much it will take to do ALL of them. Put your refund into a Day Trip fund and only touch for those special occasions.
