build financial freedom

Tax season is among us, and this year we’re focusing on financial freedom. When I was in college I loved getting back refund checks from “overpaying” my tuition. However, I wish I knew then what I know now. That refund money wasn’t my money to spend, and I should’ve returned it, or used it towards more tuition. But now, as I’ve grown into to getting tax refunds, I know better and I am trying to do better.

As I am trying to recoup my finances after my first home purchase, I’ve already made plans for my 2018 tax refund. With a ton of home renovations that I will have to fund, I’ll be purchasing a new tub. This means that I can’t go buy the Gucci belt (although Gucci is now cancelled so… I guess my pockets really won after), or the latest Jordan release.
