Eight Awesome Ways to Blow your Blogging Money

by - 8:54 PM

Growing up, I never realized how little money my family had. We spent our Summers in California, I always had more clothes than I could wear and my birthday and Christmas presents were always top-notch. Now that I'm older and responsible for my own finances, I realize my parents don't have that much money. It's not like we're poor, but I want to be able to support our family. That's one of the reasons I set up an Adsense account and show a teeny tiny ad on this blog.
Over the past few months I've made a little money and when I reach €70 I'll get paid (I hope that'll be some time in June). I swore to myself that I would use the money sensibly and use it to pay my college tuition. But then I discovered a site called I Waste So Much Money and gone were my plans of buying next semester's books with my blogging money...

You see, there are so many amazing things I could do with €70! I could buy at least 20 of these cards and send them to all my blog buddies all over the world. 'Cause, you know, I tolerate your online company so much I might start to actually like you ;)

Go buy them on Etsy
Or I could by a bunch of these, make the toilets at college awesome and mess with the minds of every female Potterhead there! I wonder how many would actually try to flush themselves... :P
Buy them here
I could also be selfish and blow it all in one go. I wouldn't mind spending all that money on one of these. I can already see them hanging on the wall of my future apartment!
You can get these right here
Maybe I should spend it all on something that's useful for my parents too. Though I don't think they'd be very happy if they come home one day to see their couch covered with superhero pillows XD
Buy them here
Or I could, you know, do my usual freaky thing and obsess over mythical creatures. Or monsters, as they call them here. I honestly want to buy this map, go to the States and go looking for Bigfoot.
So that's for sale on this site
But buying something I could wear all year long, like these wristees, would be so awesome. They're quite expensive, but who cares? With these things I on I'd finally have a good excuse to pretend I'm Iron Man!
Buy the awesomeness here


Another awesome option would be buying two of these shirts and wear them to my track meetings. Running a 5k would be so much more fun in one of these!
For sale at this Etsy shop
Wait, no. I'm not going to do any of those things. Because if there's one thing I really, really need, it's this dress. I'm going to Comic con in Belgium with a friend and I can't go without cosplaying. Okay, it might be a bit more expensive than €70, but come on people, it's a Captain America inspired dress!
You could buy me this as a birthday present right here :P
The options are endless... I could also buy three quarters of a train ticket to Paris. Or half a cell phone. I could buy three or four new books, the eight volumes of Full Metal Alchemist which I don't have yet, I could go see ten movies in the cinema or buy all the seasons of Game of Thrones on DVD... Or pay for next semesters text books anyway. At the end of the day, I'd probably use it to get myself through college. Because there's always this tiny voice in my head telling me I need a college degree more than I need a Captain America dress...
But enough about how I'd like to blow my blogging money. What would you buy if you suddenly had some money to spend?

Stay Awesome!

    1. Will the Ministry be infuriated? I bet there'd be quite a lot of people working there who'd laugh for days if they knew Muggles were trying to flush themselves through non-magical toilets :P

  3. those are awesome.
    Ive been debating about making a google adsense account for some time now. is it worth it, in your opinion?
    man, if I had money.....lol. really I just want money for the camera I've been saving up for. or tattoo/piercing money. those are the big things for me. but hey, more books would never hurt anyone. lol

    1. Well, it's not very time-consuming to set up an account, but it takes a long time to actually get some money out of it. People need to click on those ads and as long as no one clicks, you don't make any money. So if you're looking for a quick and easy way to get some money, I wouldn't recommend it. But if you don't need it right now, it's worth it. I mean, I don't have to do anything for it :P

  4. Okay let me freak over all the cool merchandise for a minute!
    Wooooooooooooooooooooh Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! :P
    You'd look like Captain America's groupie in that dress in comic con :P
    I still think my idea is the best dressing up as Enfreeze xD

    1. Hahaha, you're such a weirdo sometimes ;)
      I don't mind looking like a Captain America groupie ^-^ And it's easier than dressing up as a superhero no one has ever heard of :P

    1. The dresses are hand-made to your own measurements, so they are unique in each and evry way :) I really need one, even though I can't ever wear it except to Comic Con

  6. Hi Envy, hope you are well. :) I love these merchandise! Especially the cushions. They're so awesome! It's great that you're earning some money from Adsense and trying to save it. If I earned some money to spend, the first thing I'll buy is flowers for my table. Probably a pretty girly thing, but I'm bored with the artificial flowers at my desk and I'd like to invest in a fresh bouquet, and it isn't something I'd prioritise to buy for now unless I had the money, haha. It's so cool that you can travel to Paris by a train from Netherlands with just that amount of money too, Europe is such a beautiful place. :) By the way, your posts about Pyramus and Thisbe and Fifty Shades of Grey were really entertaining! :)

    1. Dian, so good to hear from you! How are you doing?
      Isn't this merchandise the best? When I move out I'm probably going to buy the cushions and posters and toilet seat and turn my apartment into nerd heaven :P
      I can totally understand why you'd buy flowers. My mom always buys me flowers and puts them on my desk. I think I should buy her flowers for a change, as soon as I get paid.
      Thanks for the compliments on the other two posts :)

    2. I'm doing well, thanks for your concern. :) Haha, I love how you call it a nerd heaven, I always wanted to make or at least visit one and I'd totally love to see how yours might turn out when you move out, it'd be such a fun place to hangout! Then your guests can visit the Ministry of Magic anytime or imagine they're at some superheroes HQ, haha. :)

    3. If you come to the Netherlands sometime in 2020 or later, you're more than welcome to come and visit my nerd heaven ;)

  7. Oh, so much! For one, by the digital art program I've been in need of for over a year now. And then, after I make money from my shop, I'd buy more books, Korean soap operas and anime. Lol

    And do what you need to girl, I feel ya, I want to use ads to but you have to have your blog meet all of their qualifications or something, right?

    1. Books and anime, good choices!
      ABout the ads: the only thing they want you to do is be over 18. The rest doesn't matter. I'll be sure to click your ads if you decide to set up an Adsense account ;)

  8. Love the hunger games T-shirt! I'd definitely buy that! Haha xD

  9. This is a great wishlist! Literally, the best thing about having money is window shopping (online or not) and just seeing all the things that you could buy (I don't know about you but just the fact that I can look at a price tag of something I like without flinching is a great feeling LOL)
    Buy the dress! You'll look fantastic!

    1. I love window shopping :) Sometimes when I get bored with looking up merchandise, I go to airline websites and just look up how much tickets to the US and Australia cost at the moment XD Then I plan a whole imaginary trip to that country :P
      I'm seruously coubting about that dress. cause it's a lot of money for something you can only wear once...

  10. Hahahha, a lot of my very sparse money is spend on stupid stuff like this too - like the Batman leggins I'm wearing at the moment or the Lord of the Rings T-shirt I'm wearing with them! :D

    1. Ooh, Batman leggings! I wanted to buy those too, but they made my legs look HUGE so I stuck with a T-shirt :P
