Money, money, money, money.... MONEY!

So word it the government is giving every married couple an extra $1200 on our tax returns or something like that. I really don't follow politics/government stuff/the economy, so I don't really know what I'm talking about, but I do know there is a possibility I will be receiving some extra dough from the government. And I do follow that.
Ben and I are being responsible adults at the moment and have decided to use all of our tax return money + whatever else America gives us to pay off all our debt. It'll be such a nice feeling to be debt free! Not that we have a ton, but the little bit we have is kind of annoying to me. It's kind of like cellulite: You don't really think about it that often, but when do you think about it and realize you have it, it is quite bothersome.
Anyway, if we get enough money back to pay off all our debt and have some extra, it's going into savings towards any of our future expenditures:
1. House down-payment fund
2. Chrissi wants a new car fund
3. Airline ticket fund
