One second...

What did you spend your Threadless money on?

I have heard a few nice stories here about what people have done with their winnings, from starting up an animal sanctuary to getting married. You...?


One time I bought myself a single axle bale trailer.

Actually I am planning to splurge some cash on a new bike frame. We have a kitchen renovation going on and that eats quite a bit of money right now. But it's not something actually facilitated by my massive art earnings though so it doesn't count.

That's kind Nestor. I never give my mum anything.

Got a new couch, and a new camera body. The rest pays off regular old boring bills.

Yes, sadly mine usually just gets carried off on the ever growing, cost of living conveyer belt, into the black hole of no return.

MOM isnt what you think it is... he's building a Mobile Obliteration Machine. Nestor plans on taking over the world.

My winnings have allowed me to purchase a new computer, twice. The rest was used to pay for boring crap.

Saved it all up for a down payment on a house! Unfortunately we picked a bad time to start house hunting because everybody else is apparently doing the same thing. CURSESSSS. Print me some more, Threadless! NEED MOAR HOUSE MONIES.

-Cringe-

I bought some nice leather seats for my private jet, nothing to fancy...

Actually never got printed, but i've wanted to go to japan for quite some time now. I got denied my student exchange last year (2 spots for 50 people ;O), I'm saving up but can't even afford the plane ticket right now. A friend of mine is going this summer... no pressure threadless^^

Taking over the world will have to way until after taking care of mom. She lost her job and now she is afraid she will lose her house ( arthrithis keeps her from getting another job) so yeah, most of my threadless and lyft winings go to mom. Only fair thing to do after she took care of me for so long.

I spend my gift code on a bunch of cool shirts for me and my fake son and some skirts and things for my lady.

I haven't gotten my royalties paid out on all my BUTT MAGIC! sales, but when I do, I imagine I will spend that on three Subway Footlongs.

That's going to be a ton of feet.

I havent got any. :[

If I ever get any --I think I'll add an addition to the home. Perhaps one of those fancy refrigerator boxes.

A 2 week (much needed) vacation to York Beach, ME. It's in June.

A new temper-pedic mattress (although I still have back problems...)

A new tablet.

The rest of it has been used on normal family stuff.

Mostly debts, car debts, house debts, christmas debts, and supplementing my wages to avoid more debts. The best things were two trips to see two of my best friends, one in Singapore, the other in California.

Also I bought three Jeff clones to run my zoo filled with Jeff/Animal hybrids we made in the early 90's.
