I just bought a new robotic vacuum with my earnings from part of this year from HubPages. Usually I spend my HP Paypal money on things for my dogs like leashes, tags, crates, training devices, etc. I have wanted a robotic vacuum for years now, so I snatched up a Neato pet hair vac. I can't wait for it to arrive.
What cool things have you bought with your HP mad money?
Like you, dog stuff - we have six.
This payday, I used HP money to buy my daughter a Snowball microphone for her upcoming birthday.
I've thought about robotic vacuums, but our GoldenDoodle sleeps in the living room and he'd probably kill it... or be so terrified of it he'd climb the walls I'll stick to my purple fairy wand (Dyson cordless).
Glad to know I'm not the only one letting my HP money go to the dogs. Giving your daughter a gift is a nice way to spend it.
I have high drive herding dogs who already attack my upright vacuum. There will be a bit of a training curve with the new vacuum, but they will soon learn to leave it be. I wish I could let them attack it AND have it still work great, but I suppose it isn't designed as a dog toy too.
I can feel the '10 Best Snowball Microphones for Mountain Dwellers' coming on. Too niche?
I'm not usually too conscious of what I spend my HP money on; I just see, "Oh, good, money" and get something to eat with it, buy some tylenol, or whatever else I need at the time. It comes in handy, no doubt about it.
Usually gadgets, mountain bike parts, tools etc. The engine on my cement mixer finally snapped a con rod after mixing loads of concrete so it got a nice new replacement engine thanks to HubPages!
My dad used to say stuff like that. Never knew what he was talking about, lol.
Mine is more biological. I used my HP earnings from several years to make a down payment on a small cocao plantation that is over run with macacos (mostly capuchins), prequiças, kuatis, jacarés, teuis, and thousands of biting insects that I have no interest in identifying.
My HP money would roll into the same pot too except it goes into Paypal where it sits separately from my bank account. I don't have it set up to go into my bank account from there. Thus, I know exactly where my HP money goes. Food is good though. Very good and very important.
I rarely look at individual earnings, but just bounced into an author that earned over $3600 in the last payout. I believe where she lives in the US, that's enough to support a person.
We like to see Hubbers doing well and while most of us make bits of dough, it's still nice to be able to take the kids out for burgers or have a little secret stash with HP funds.
$3,600 would be nice, and a person could live on that pretty easily where I live. I'm pleased for her!! Mine, of course, was well short of that, but I am thrilled with my extra stash of cash. I'll wait another six months and go buy something else fun. I really do want a Manners Minder or Treat-n-Train machine to train my next agility puppy.
I also use my money to rent movies since I do so through PayPal, so HP keeps me entertained as well. Interesting information Paul. Thanks for posting it.
Where I live I would definitely be living comfortably on $3600 a month. If I made that on HP I'd immediately quit my job and relax for awhile. It really is good to know some people are making that much money here.
That's amazing because I thought anyone making 1,000+ per month was a rare feat but it's nice to know that higher end earnings can and do exist.
I'm pretty sure the number of people earning over $1,000 a month is still only a very small percentage of Hubbers. At one time I knew a few people who earned over $2,000 a month but now I don't personally know anyone making that. It's good to know there's one person at least who's doing spectacularly well.
I'm happy I've been able to use my earnings to pay a few bills the past couple months. It's amazing what some extra cash can do every month.
I've just used this month's online earnings (combined website and HubPages) to pay for us to fly interstate for the weekend, so my husband can reunite with his daughter, whom he's been estranged from for several years.
Probably the most worthwhile thing I've ever spent it on!
That's awesome! I spent my online earnings (HP and Website) on a week long trip to Italy earlier in August.
That is a very worthwhile use of the money. I hope all goes well. Lobo - that's a wonderful use of your money! Italy would be wonderful to see.
That is beautiful, Marisa. Thanks for sharing that.
I started out saving for my husband's retirement. Along with other money, he was able to retire at 62. Now I am saving for an extra special vacation. The money I earn from my website goes into the checking, so it just goes to help pay bills.
