What are the special things you do with your Adsense money?

Throwing in another silly q, but what the!@#$%...
When I received my july payment, I took my wife out to a, well, not so really good, but acceptable restaurant. It may sound pathetic but it is a symbol.
It gives me much more pleasure doing the AS stuff if I spend some of the money on very visible or special things.

Did you folks ever received your AS payment to go straight to the travel agency to book a trip to a sunny place? Did one of you ever brought your payment instantly to the Porsche dealer? What are the special things you do with your AS money?

Hi HB,

I don't think this is quite what you mean, but my AS money goes on more and better hosting, development time, and new (photography) equipment to let my site(s) grow.

Though sound investment, all of these are really quite fun and things that I would continue to do more slowly as a public service and for fun if AS wasn't there.

Haven't had any wild hedonism on AS money yet. (Other than dancing on tables while Ann plays guitar, obviously...)

I've put every AdSense cheque that I've received straight into my savings account - except for one, which I used to buy a really comfortable computer chair :)

My cheques usually go straight in the bank.

I have just got back from a holiday to Greece, Italy, Switzerland and Dubai. I had a great time thanks to Adsense.

I think it was even better that I was making money while I swam, baked and had fun in the Mediterranean sun ;)

All my money gets put back out to writers so they can write me more interesting articles.

I guess I will use Novembers money to help with the payment of some Christmas gifts to the family!

bought a house and qualified mainly with adsense income.
Seems easier to qualify than ever....I used a printout of my turbotax before I even sent it off. I mean I could have put any numbers in it.

"My wife always wants to go "Somewhere expensive" so this month I took her to the local petrol station!"

This was a great post.

By the way, do you know why women like diamonds?

Because they are expensive.

I also liked the post that said the adsense money is going to the savings account.

It is very important to pay yourself first. Putting in savings is paying yourself.

The others are very valid too, you have to do what you have to do to live and to grow your business.

Have a great day.

Rfung,

Do you mean you are traveling the world and Adsense pays for it? You now and then visit some Internet Café to maintain the accounts and stuff? What's the deal here?
By the way, watch out for pickpockets in A'dam!

With the leftover I get a hamburger, sometimes with fries, sometimes without.

Buy a car, cash outright.
Buy new laptops, cash outright.
Travel the world, cash outright.
Marry off my last daughter, cash outright.

Just important stuff. I love Adsense.

Funeral expenses are horrendous. Luckily we had Adsense revenues.

Hi all -

As an AdSense support team member, I love hearing how publishers are benefiting from AdSense on a personal level. I'll be sure to pass this along to the rest of the support team.

BTW, I like the post about going to the petrol station ;)
