I was reading a post over at Empress’s Blog talking about her first Google payment. What do you do with the money that rolls in from your online adventures?
I have a U.S. dollar savings account (I live in Canada) that I dump all my cheques in. Whether the amounts are big or small, that money doesn’t get touched until I buy big. And yuppers – it all adds up.
Since I’m a mom, buying big almost always means spending it on my kiddo :lol:.
Here’s a big purchase I made last year from 2005 affiliate earnings. My son, who turns 16 this spring (read: drivers license) is darn happy those cookies tracked:
Before you get all excited, know that it’s a 1985 Porsche. A twenty year old car :lol:. But it’s in mint condition and we got a great deal on it. The picture above is just one I grabbed from the web – seems buying a digital camera didn’t fit in with the affiliate money spending spree. But it’s the same car.
My PayPal earnings – that all goes to hosting and tools/ebooks spends.
The little bit that I get in Canadian money goes to my credit card that I use to pay for my online stuff (mainly domain purchases/renewals and the monthly iTunes allowance for the spoiled Porsche driving kiddo :P).
Earning money online is fun! But it’s just as much fun saving and spending it :lol:.
