Okay, a lot of people have been posting lately about their joy in receiving their first mylot payment. We're all happy about that, but here, I'm more interested to know what people actually do with the money. As we all know, 10 dollars is not that big an amount so we have to be careful and wise on how to spend it. I'm thinking maybe to use it for investment? Not do anything with it and wait 'till the money increases? buy something we have wanted for a long time using it? How about you? What did you do with your first 10 dollars from mylot? or your first minimum payment from mylot?

I am still earning to achieve my first $10 dollars, this amount is already good enough in our country currency rate. And I will use this to process my application for a government benefits programs or insurance program ( Social Security System). This will give assurance for my own future and to my family as well!

i mean, is it for real? You can do all that with 10 dollars? O.o I guess I would be able to buy some cup of tea and some biscuits, or a nice icecream only :S

yes! here in the Philippines $10 is equivalent to P435.300 peso.And P300 pesos is enough to process all the requirement to apply to this insurance program!

$10 isn't that much and I can't really use it to buy stuff offline so I use it to buy things online as it's way more cheaper. I used my 10 dollars for ebay, I found something I liked and bought it, I think I bought a shirt. I also leave there to save up and buy more things on ebay. That's the main thing I use my online earnings for anyway. I have been spending it on a lot of clothes and accessories and I think it's time for me to save my Mylot money for useful things like textbooks. I'm planning on buying school textbooks to help me in my senior studies in high school. Hopefully I will not be tempted by more clothes on ebay. Even though the amount I make each day is like spare change but once it starts building up, cents turn into dollars. It's better than nothing but I wish I could earn dollars each day, that would be so much better.

I feel you, triple0. I also want to buy clothes, because they last and they are quite useful. I'm not familiar with ebay. I'm not sure if i might need to pay extra for the delivery. a unique item is good enough for me. It would be like a reminder that online we can earn and as long as we work hard we will definitely achieve many things.

It would be nice to buy something online but with the shipping fee to it, I'm not sure if $10 can get something really good

Yes. If that is the case then maybe i should withdraw from my eon card and use to buy some local items here.

LOL, just this week I got my money. I've been busy with other things so i don't spend time on mylot that much. Anyway, your number of post won't help increase your earning. It's the quality of your responses, post and discussion that counts. Your level of activity as well.

Oh yeah..but what does it mean by quality posts..can u explain.Do i have to get strred for my discussion or responses? I have recently joined mylot and trying to be active.I hope to do my best.Anyways thanxs for ur suggestion.

Hi lekhya, in my opinion and based on what I have learned so far here in mylot, quality opinion/response/comment is something that doesn't need to be short or long. You just basically have to make your point. Your responses to discussions should have the intention to help resolve a question or to help prolong it's thread (to make it really look like a discussion in other words). If you see a discussion wherein you are not familiar with the topic at all, better do a little research before joining that discussion. In that way, you will be able to participate productively Hope that helps!

That is a photo frame you put a digital memory card in with your photos on it and it shows a slide show of your photos..

Yeah I've seen one! My cousin has a digital photo frame hang on her wall. It is nice to turn it on especially when there are visitors. The pictures will just slide one by one as if you are watching a Powerpoint presentation. Some expensive ones have background music and designs! It's cool! ^^

hello, My first payment here in mylot what i do is to spend of for some medicine online. i bought it and thank god it really help me a lot. I also think that I can used it for some investment but since I dont have a knowledge to anything I spend it first in my needs.

I see. Thanks tiina! I suppose it is useful when we want to buy something online, something that we can't buy from local stores. I've been eye-ing some lolita shoes online, but they cost a lot.

Hi Aja, haven't heard of lolita shoes but from the name itself, it must be cute! I am going to check the net to see how it looks

It's those gothic anime shoes they wear together with a gothic dress. I want those high heeled shoes and those knee high gothic lolita boots! They are not common and I would like to start a fad. I would rather wear it now than wait for others to wear it ahead of me, LOL!

It's still sitting in my Paypal account and I haven't used anything for it yet. I still haven't found anything I want to purchase anyway :D

Let it sit on your paypal account or you can save it on your bank account. Once you transfer your money to your bank account you will surely use it! (^^)

Lol! That's just so true and that's one reason why I let it sit on my PayPal account :P Too bad though I missed the last 2/3 pay days

Dear Aja The USD10 is still good money. Rich people treasure even USD1.00. Remember the popular saying 'A little bit of sand, a little bit of water will make a mighty ocean and pleasant land' If I were you, I would convert the money into hard dollar and frame it. This is a sign of your first achievement. OK? Thanks! Bro. Joe. God Bless You

Nice Question coz even I am waiting for my first payout. First of all let me clear 10$ is not a big amount to do something big but if i get my first payout of 10$ i will definitely put that money in my clixsense account and become a premium member and earn through it or will just put that money in any online money trippler site like JSS and try to make it a good handsome money so that it will be more useful for me. I had already earned 2$ in clixsense in just 1 month so if i get 10$ i just have to invest 8$ more to become a premium member so i will definitely go for it coz they are legit company and are paying since last 4-5 years.

is it really worth it if i go for premium on clixsense? I have joined the website, and I feel like I'm crawling with the little amount of money I make there.

I think I svaed up my many ten dollars in my paypal and then transferred it to an account from which I forexed (forex trading ) every penny and lost it in the process .One year of hard work went in a couple of months .It was worth it though cause I did what I wanted with it and would probably have done it again hadit not be for my new philosophy which is to use that money to buy a domain name and establish my website

Sadly, money goes away faster than they come nowadays. Awesome. How much does it usually cost for a domain name and website?

My first ten dollar from mylot is my first income through internet. I am having some sort of disbelieve with this kind of online earning websites. After i get my first $10 from mylot. I completely believe this site. Thereafter i start working with my full of interest and joy. I am going spend this money to buy such a things which will remind my first mylot earning all days to me when i see that things.

Dear Aja That's a good question! But my take is that we should buy something that has a good resale value. Saving the money is out of the question. Why? Because the rate of inflation will eat away the interest you put into the bank. To help you better why don't you get a copy of the book 'The Millionaire Next Door!' It's a real eye opener. Read it and then we can continue the thread. OK. Regards! Bro. Joe. GBU

Ulp, I really hope there's an ebook form of that book available. Right now, I don't want to buy books and paper things, since a lot of them have been accumulating on my desks, cabinets and shelves. I better clean up first before buying any. Inflation will eat away my interest in the bank? I don't quite understand, sorry. But thank you so much for that information, josephngiewfatt! (your name is very hard to spell)

I guess i have to let it stay in my paypal account. If I collect about a hundred dollars in it I will buy something big. In terms of investment be careful in investing to some sites. There are lots of scam and fraudulent activities out there that can eat your money. It would be best to research and read a lot about it before investing.
@Aja103654 (5658)

Thank you for that, bolive. I don't really plan to invest online since 10 dollars is a very little amount anyway and I'm not an expert when it comes to online investment. Rest assured, investing online is definitely my last option for my 10 dollars.

Hi aja, I first must say that I am relatively new her at mylot.only been here since October last year...But I have received my first "pay out"...I was told its call...just a few weeks ago and like you said , its not a lot of money but every litele bit helps when you are on a fixed income like me.. But I am going to let it sit there for a while and watch it grow and grow and grow....I HOPE...but I do know that when its spend it will definately be spent on ME.....no question...LOL...

Haha, yeah! Like you, I would want to spend it on myself. After all, we did all the thinking and the posting here on mylot, so we deserve every bit of that payment from mylot. It's alright to share some by treating family or friends for something to eat. That's also a good idea to celebrate our first earning.
• Philippines
17 Jan 12
Mine is still in paypal. Haven't touched it yet. I will wait till I reach about $50 before I transfer it to paypal. That is to avoid paying so many transfer fees. But if I were to buy something out of $10, that's about P420 here, I would like to buy a bag or shoes
@Aja103654 (5658)

That amount of money runs out easily. Same as you, I would like to use the money to buy material things that I could really use, such as bags and shoes! I really need a new pair of shoes at the moment, because all my footwear are ruined and old already. I will never buy cheap shoes ever again. The last one I bought only lasted for 2 weeks, it got ruined because of the rain and the flooded streets I walk on.

I just signed up today, so haven't received any money yet of course. This is actually my first post! But I plan on saving up the money on paypal, then perhaps use it towards Christmas presents next year, or just pay on a bill..haven't decided yet and it really depends on how long I last before I just have to spend it. lol

I don't think ten dollars is enough to pay the bill though it will add to some money for your expenses. Maybe it's better to buy it for something memorable, because it's not easy to post on mylot everyday and we don't earn that fast here either unless we are spending more than four hours each day to post here.

it's still in my paypal account because I don't have an eon card at the moment...I'm planning to get one one day it's just that of all banks, union bank is the one that's not available in our place. According to the details I got from researching, they are located at our neighboring city. Oh well, I have to locate it first because I'm not familiar with that place...poor me

That is... very inconvenient, indeed. I don't know any other way for it other than to provide yourself an eon card. You'll have to get one, otherwise, you won't be able to get your money.

I am thinking this way too Aja "use it for investment" as I want to complete something. I want it to mean something because of the time, energy and desire I've put into mylot. I want something as a good memoir of this time - the time being the winter of 2011-2012 and into we will see now won't we?
@Aja103654 (5658)

Yes! It's a very small amount to me and it's not easy posting stuff here everyday. It has to be spent on something worthwhile. What can you suggest? Have you gotten your first 10 dollars already?
