Tax Time Means New Furniture....and a CSN Giveaway!

This giveaway is now closed! Congrats to Tanya @ Miller Racing Family!!
I know not everyone loves tax return time...but when you have more than a few kiddos and some great deductions, tax time isn't too bad! I actually love that we usually get a pretty big chunk of money around this time of the year. Jason on the other hand hates that we overpay the government throughout the year and basically give them interest free use of our money.

Because we almost always get a refund check, this is also the time of year when we do a little shopping for things we wouldn't normally buy during the rest of the year. I got my embroidery machine and my DSLR camera {Jason got a welding machine one year} after refund checks:) The top thing on Jason's list this year is a new TV. He has all kinds of technical reasons for wanting one...I'm just excited that a new TV equal the possibility of new furniture. I'm thinking we may just have to replace the old console table under our TV for a new LCD TV stand. Because if he gets a bigger TV, I will probably need a bigger table to make sure things in the living room look even:)

I hopped over to check out all the great TV stands that csnstores.com has and found these beauties:



Now I'm sure that if any of you have filed your taxes you know that there is a delay because of some technical/political mumbo jumbo. We filed our taxes a few weeks ago and they told us it could be toward the middle or end of February before we get our refund...so for now that new TV stand is on hold!
BUT I have great news for one of you because CSN Stores is partnering with me again to give away a $45 gift certificate to any of the their 200 plus stores:)

As we wait for our tax return, our list was long as well. With two little boys crammed in one room, we think its time to get some bunk beds. Im loving Wildon Home- OberonTwin Over Twin Bunk Bed in Rich Cappucino. SUper cute and goes with the pirate themed room!

Amanda said...

I love tax time too! I couldn't wait to do our taxes and I ended up ordering all of our big baby items and hubby is picking up a new table saw. Of course the rest goes into savings but its still fun to spend a little! As for CSN... well with baby on the way momma needs a new breast pump! lol

We use our refund for summer camps and league fees, usually. A week at a university sports camp is usually in the $600 range and Whirling Dervish's travel lacrosse league was about $3500 in league fees, equipment, and travel expenses last year.

Great giveaway! I'd use it towards a new rug for our dining room. Ever since I redid our DR chairs, the rug has been looking like it needs to be replaced. Thanks for hosting this giveaway.

I would get this...http://www.csnstores.com/Uniflame-Corporation-F-1187-UL1152.html

My husband and I love having building a fire in the fire place. Our home we are renting came with a fire place set, but it was broken. We are trying to make do with what we have. A new one would make it much more enjoyable though! About 2-3 times a week we lay by the fire and read books to each other. :)

Torrie Anderson said...

Right now I don't mind tax time. :) However, I just got a job yesterday and my husband works too. 2011 may be a little more difficult. We aren't homeowners yet, so I could see where that would put a curveball on things as well. We are doing taxes next weekend. TURBO TAX ROCKS! :) :) :)

Shari said...

I SO need a rug to warm up our basement. Really would like to help it become a more liveable space.

Lyndee @ A Recovering Craft Hoarder said...

LOVE tax time; hate doing them. I figure that money would have been spent (on non-fun stuff) if it had just been put into my account. It's a great savings plan. I'm also just grateful to get a refund!

I'm totally neutral about tax time. My husband is an accountant (not a CPA), so our taxes come out almost even at the end of the year. No money back, but no money out and we have a CPA do the taxes, so no stress there.
