    Do you go on a shopping spree with your HubPages earnings?

    A friend of mine recently went on a spree at Safeway and bought some chewing gum and cask wine!  Do you ever feel that it's a delicious reward for your writing - to have earnings to spend all on your very own self?

    The Hubpages earnings usually pay for books. Indulging into my favorite hobby. That's a reward of itself.

      That's a smart investment - the book reading helps with the article writing.  Thanks, Iburmaster, and happy reading!

    LOL No. Just pay a couple of bills. That's about it.

      Sounds fun!  But, again, one less bill removes the pressure (of course, then there's the other one lurking in the mailbox!).  I like your articles.  Thank you, JThomp42 smile

    No.  I haven't received a payout yet, but when I do, it is going to go directly in my IRA.  Boring, I know.

      I know the feeling, we all have things we have to pay.  But, it's nice to get a bill out of one's hair.  Thank you, Kommandant smile

    I have never gone on a shopping spree with my earnings.  I do, however, like to buy some much needed items on Walmart.com once I get paid.  Walmart's website accepts PayPal and you can get free shipping if you spend more than 45 dollars on "home items" which includes toilet paper, paper towels, shampoo, etc.  I guess you could consider that a useful online shopping spree. ;-)

      Exactly!  A utilitarian shopping spree; the best of all.  It's fun to splurge on necessities.  Thank you, Jeannieinabottle smile
