Something that I waste money on would probably be books. I always buy books. I love reading. It's terrible if I'm stuck on the train or waiting for something and I don't have something to read so I tend to buy a lot of books, novels, a few magazines, reader's digest and also I waste a lot of money on shampoo because I have long hair and I have to wash my face every day. That's a big pain.

Something that I waste money on, for me this would be jewelry. I often spend too much money on jewelry because shiny things really attract me. If I'm shopping somewhere and there's something flashy shining at me I usually stop and look and often times the salesperson can get me to buy. Another thing, might be books but I don't know so much if that is a waste or not.
Mark, Unites States
Ah, I waste money on, I guess mostly on going out, like whether it's going to restaurants or, I don't really go to clubs or anything, but, yeah, I just spend money temporary things. I don't actually buy a lot of objects like a stereo or a CD, or anything like that, I just spend money on going out with my friends, and just food and drinks basically.
Todd, United States
Something that I waste money on is DVDs. I'm always buying DVDs and I'll be in some electronics, like store, and I'll see a new DVD and I'll buy it rather than just go to the video store and rent it. I don't know why but I like to buy the DVD when it has the special stuff on the back, but still, it's pretty expensive when you think about it, so, yeah, I waste way too much money on DVDs.
Something I waste money on often is clothes shopping. I guess because I'm a girl to start with shopping is always a fun pasttime and I find it relaxing, actually I call it shopping therapy to go and buy some new clothes often buy myself, I go shopping but shopping is something I spend or waste money on.
I usually don't spend that much money on anything but then if there's something I waste money it would be food. I like desserts, especially ice cream so when I go out for dinner I would definitely have a dessert afterwards and cakes, candies, chocolates, all those things, I spend money on.
It's terrible if I'm stuck on the train.
When we are 'stuck' someplace that means we can't leave. Notice the following:
- The storm delayed our flight so we were stuck in the airport all night.
- I hate being stuck on a bus for for hours.
That's a big pain.
Something that is 'a big pain' is usually very inconvenient. Notice the following:
- I need to renew my driver's license. The test, the paper work and the waiting in line are such a big pain.
- Check-in at the airport is always a big pain lately.
Shiny things really attract me.
Something that 'attracts' us causes us to become interested. Notice the following:
- What attracted me about having my own business was the freedom.
- The idea of studying abroad really attracts me.
I just spend money on food and drinks basically.
We use the word 'basically' when we talk about general things, not details. Notice the following:
- Sandra gossips a lot, but she's basically a nice girl.
- There are many activities on elllo, but it's basically a listening site.
Shopping is always a fun pastime and I find it relaxing.
A 'pastime' is an activity we do for fun or to relax. Notice the following:
- They say that baseball is America's pastime.
- My dad's favorite pastime is reading.
