How did you use your refund?

If you got a tax refund this year, how do you plan to use it?

I picked pay down a debt, but several actually fit for me. If I get all I'm supposed to get back, I will put aside a third of it towards a vehicle for my sil (for when he gets a job), the I'll probably give a quarter of what's left to dd to do what she wants to with it.. she needs to go to the eye dr, she wants to give the kids some cash to see how they spend it (they want new clothes) she and sil need clothes.
With the 1/2 I have left I'll be looking into getting a tombstone for my Mom-hopefully a double one so I don't have to worry about getting one for Dad when he passes (I will contribute about 1/2 of what it might cost, then my brother and sisters will have to ante up on the rest); need to get dh and myself to the eye dr for new glasses and get dh to the dr for a checkup and to get a sleep study done to diagnose his apnea. then I hope I'll have enough left to actually put toward a credit card I use for car repairs.. and would like to get a new desktop (might have to take that out of what I give to dd)..
First they have to give me the refund I'm supposed to get though..

We got ours already. Paid all the bills, did a little bit of splurge purchases, putting a new engine in my van and still have some left in the bank for emergencies.

We will be getting ours soon. We are paying for a seasonal campsite this year. Will get some car repairs done. The rest will go away to help pay for property taxes and 2 girls fall college bills.
Have a wonderful day.
