Money Coming in

February 27th, 2014 at 01:35 am

I am waiting for my state tax refund, the exact amount up in the air due to them recalculating something (happens to most of us in this state at one point or another).

AND... I was given a bonus at work! It'll come in my 3/21 paycheck. $5000. Not sure exactly what that will translate to after taxes...but I am going to put it all to debt!
