This week in deals: 20% off most items at Diapers.com


Now that tax day is over and done with, we can finally focus on things less stressful. If you're one of the lucky ones that got a return, you'll be able to put it to good use. Whether it's planning for that family trip to the big islands of Hawaii or use it to pay down credit card debt, you'll be happier mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually and yes, financially.

For those of us that had to pay Uncle Sam, I guess the good news is that we probably made a lot more than we expected. Although it hurts to pay out (I feel you), you can use this year's tax return as a general guideline to help you plan for next year's tax day and hopefully get a return.

Whether you got money from the IRS or gave money to them, I've got this week's top 5 deals for you (every little bit helps):
