Any useless crap I might run into

Garden supplies or some new ‘treat’ for my MHC or the dog. My bugs live pretty well considering.

Oh, I’d go to Bath & Body Works. Lots of good smelly stuff in there that I could buy cheaper at the store, but their stuff is soooo good.

A cupcake. Yellow cake, chocolate icing. If I have a little bit more money, a cup of coffee to go with it. Yummy!

Nothing. I save my money as much as I can. I used to have a change jar, but since I use my debit card for everything, I rarely touch actual money hence no change for the jar. Although, I will admit I’ve been known to splurge on discount fabric when at a fabric store.

Nothing, I save it for something better.

I put it towards paying off debt, because I am responsible.

…unless I see shoes, makeup, music, books, clothes, totchkies, or food before I get around to writing the check. :)

@knitfroggy – I would seriously consider changing your beverage of choice, if I were you. Here’s why: http://www.rense.com/general33/legal.htm

None of you listed what I usually use it for. There are many causes out there worth contributing to, many groups working to make the world a better place. Instead of spending it on myself, I usually give to them. Kiva is one of my favorites, because you help someone and you get the money back.

That’s not to say I don’t buy absolute crap for myself. I do. I have a lot of dept to pay off too. :\

Paying of debt, and saving.

@knitfroggy, I’m with you on the diet Dr. Pepper. Cherry Vanilla for me. Love it!

Chinese food if it’s a small amount, or a plane ticket to Providence if it’s a bit more. :)

Food. Always.

I horde it up to use for a trips out of town or car repairs, stuff I know is bound to happen because it always does.

Money left over? I’m not sure I understand what you mean by that…

exitnirvana's avatar

@MacBean, lurve that! Such a quote could possibly explain why my book collection have overrun my room therefore deeming it a fire hazard…hmph.

MacBean's avatar

@exitnirvana Such a quote certainly explains why I don’t own enough clothing to last a whole week, but my book collection has overflowed from my full-wall bookcase and my room is now waist-high piles of books and a small path from the door to the bed!

@MacBean and @exitnirvana:
Have you considered BookCrossing.com?

exitnirvana's avatar

@hearkat never heard of it before, definitely looks like something i’m going to check out at length. At the moment I’m obsessed with this site which basically just enables my addiction…haha.

@Macbean haha yeeeeahhh my room is about the same way, piles of books everywhere.
