Single Mom Decided To Use Her $5,600 Tax Refund For THIS, And Now Others Are Trying It Too!

Christina Knaack is a single mom just trying to make it through each day and provide for her family. Most families look forward to their tax returns in order to “treat” their families, either by taking trips, buying new toys or gadgets, or even giving it to their children as “fun money.” Not this mom! She decided to do something different this year, and other families have taken note.

Christina has decided to negotiate and pay her rent for the next year with the money instead of spending it onĀ stuff.

I got back $5,600 on my taxes. Instead of buying my kids the latest Jordans or fancy electronics, I paid my rent for the YEAR. I’m a single mom and I do it all by myself on a minimum wage job. I know that a roof over my kids head is what’s important. My kids don’t want for anything because my priorities are straight. And this also means I will have that extra $450 per month to do things with my kids.”

Her post was shared over 86,000 times in less than 18 hours, but has received mixed responses. While some people are calling her “crazy” for trusting a landlord with that much money upfront in case they foreclose on her, the majority of people are applauding her for doing “what any responsible adult would do” and wish her the best of luck in the next year!
