Where/what do you blow your money on?

Oh Dear, I've just ordered a new monitor! But it gave me an idea for this thread - where does all your hard earned cash go? Or (as in my case) where is it meant to be going!

Re: Where/what do you blow your money on?

As you can see from my profile I have quite a collection of 'kit' so one of my vices is technology - but a lot of that has been built up over the years, and regardless of how messy I am, I DO look after my kit I'm not a gadget freak tho, I will only buy something if I am really interested in it and going to make good use of it.

Then there's DVDs (although now that will be BRs), music (although these days I prefer listening to online radios such as bassdrive.com, so not so much cost these days)

Just yesterday I pre-ordered a new monitor! But my excuse is I spend all day at the computer so need a nice screen!


Same goes for the PC I bought a couple of weeks ago

Of course you know about gaming. Then there's my beloved pets - it's not cheap owning a fussy cat and a BIG dog, and a BIG dog that LOVES to chew!! He's gone through a few pairs of shoes and trainers (not always mine either ) a bunch of CDs that I left out by mistake one day. A door the staircase, a chair, a mobile phone, lol the list goes on!

But the way I see it, I don't go drinking, don't smoke and don't do drugs so save a lot there.

I do have a problem tho... I am meant to be doing this house up!! As in gutting it already did the top two floors, got the basement left. Need new kitchen, new bathroom, new office, new Rocky's room Was meant to be doing it this year, but I don't think it's gonna happen now

So how about you lot? Where does your money go regardless of where it was meant to end up!

Donít know my money like sand the harder I hold onto it the fast it slips through my hands

Re: Where/what do you blow your money on?

Technology .

I don't get any money from my parents except for clothes etc, and still if its something expensive then I'll still have to put some in. So yeah, money from my job goes to mainly my technology craze i.e. PC, games, DVD's, music. I also put some in a bank to save until uni every once in a while.

At the moment, I'm saving for a MacBook to take to college next year, and am hoping to get a 360 when they change to 65nm chips which is supposed to be happening this summer.

Mostly technology. I just blew $400 on computer parts last month... And not even on my main gaming system. I did it on my secondary desktop & video editing system.

Re: Where/what do you blow your money on?

Of course, a lot of my income goes to technology, but as of recently it's been re-directed toward tuning my car and I've been saving up to move.

But I do love to hit the arcade every once in a while. Not like a bowling alley either, it's real video arcade, one of the only few in town. People say I'm like a 30 year old trapped in a 17 year old's body because I blow so much on classic titles like Street Fighter and of course, Silent Scope.

I blow my money (After rent, and bills) on comics books and video games! I don't have one main thing I buy.
