Christina Knaack write in her post that she used the money to pre-pay her rent – for the entire year. “I got back $5600 on my taxes. Instead of buying my kids the latest Jordans or fancy electronics I paid my rent for the YEAR.”


Out of the tens of thousands of comments, most were either encouraging, praising Christina for providing for her family,

or condemning her, saying she should have used the money for something else, or for posting about it on Facebook.
