This year, I’ve placed financial responsibility at the top of my priority list. As part of this plan, I signed up for LearnVest, a pretty cool site that helps you with everything from budgeting to investing to setting financial goals. With today being Tax Day (dun dun dunnnn), I thought that I would share tips from a LearnVest article about ways to do a little good with your tax refund.
Here are a few of the tips below:
- Donate your dime. Consider donating all or a part of your check to a charitable cause that you’re passionate about.
- Shop with a conscience. Update your wardrobe with some of my favorite social good brands like TOMS and Warby Parker.
- Take a volunteer trip. I’ve always wanted to get a little voluntourism under my belt. Maybe next year… NOLA, perhaps?
You can read the rest of the list here.
I plan to donate a few of my dollars to charity, but the majority will be going to credit cards and wedding expenses. What are your plans for your tax refund (if you’re getting one)?
