5 Ways To Blow Your Tax Refund Wisely
A Place to rest
This is a tougher one to recommend, as today's sought-after furniture style can turn into tomorrow's ironic off-campus decor within a generation. Living room sets, dining room sets and kitchen sets in classic, clean inoffensive styles are your best bet, but why invest in rooms you're only spending a scant few hours in? The best way to go, especially if you're feeling cramped or if your old model's about to give way, is to throw that $3,100 or so into bed with you. That price can get you a king or California-king-sized Tempurpedic, a king-sized Stearns & Foster or a king-sized Simmons Beautyrest at department stores such as Macy's (M) or Sears (SHLD), but it also gets you the only piece of furniture you're going to use 2,100 to nearly 3,000 hours a year.
