Bought power supplies, parts, etc... Even a kettle. Bitcoin is now being used as money here.

-Bawls Soda
-Micro USB powered fridge
-Magnetic Silly Putty
-More Soda
-Zen Magnets
-Games, lots and lots of games.
-Even more games. So many.
-A physical coin with no value as a toy.

That's it I think. So many things.

Apple is certainly a mess of a company.  It does something well then sucks the life out of it and steals others ideas to brand it's own al-la MS.
There are rumors that they are going to do their own digital currency to sidestep BTC and control the flow of the currency.

Electronics:
1080P HD Contour Roam Helmet-Mounting Watersports Camera
500 Watt ATX PSU
Car Battery (actually bought a Sears gift card on Gyft and bought the battery with the gift card)

Jewelry:
Sterling Silver Necklace
Bitcoin Pins
Ancap/Voluntaryist pins

Food:
Many lunches and dinners, menu items ranging from burgers and fries to vegan entrees, pizza to chinese

Digital goods:
VPN services, web hosting, domain names, and contracted with a developer/programmer who made me a python script to import product data from a distributor's API into our e-commerce site

Misc. other:
A coffee mug with an image on the side
A handlebar mount for my cellphone
A print-copy of a bitcoin magazine

Speculation:
Much online gambling, including bets on the future price of bitcoin, and stocks on cryptostocks, and also trading for other coins on cryptsy.

And I've sold a number of Christmas trees for coins!

A properly secured wallet with bitcoin is in my opinion the safest, most secure, best all-around bet for holding wealth at this moment in history. Go ahead, call me crazy. They've been calling me crazy since 2013.

A PCI-E extender cable.

Drugs.

Hosting.

That's about it.

I have the problem that many folks have: I AM HODLING.  I feel bad spending any bitcoin.  It's almost the complete opposite of fiat for me, which I know is liable to crash any day, so I spend it as much and as fast as possible for goods.

Not yet, though I'm looking at some helmets and leathers on overstock http://www.overstock.com/search?keywords=motorcycle&SearchType=Header

Also I'm the service manager at a motorcycle shop so I generally can get things for cheaper prices through our wholesale catalogs than I can with bitcoin. Though I've also talked with the owner about bitcoin and we will be accepting it in the future when we launch our ecommerce site.

oh and nice little tool store!! I might purchase something today!

- A ton of of chai tea and lunch (wraps/curries) from a favourite local cafe of mine (even before they took XBT I used to frequent their original location back in the day)
- Tips (on top of cash tips) to a few people. Also to helpful sites.
- Paying back small debts to friends, co-workers
- A trivial amount of dice games, bitcoin-based shares just for the fun of it

I was recently intending to pay for move out cleaning services in XBT, but they took my initial deposit by CC and then charged the rest to my card shortly after the service was provided before we worked out the details. (I didn't initiate the offer to pay in bitcoin, they advertise it right on their site. I think the original request to pay in bitcoin was simply forgotten between scheduling the booking and the work done several weeks apart.)

On a side note, I just moved continents, and am hoping to buy some food via the takeaway.com network sometime soon too!

(If more retailers/non-US retailers were accepting bitcoin, I'd continue to use it and just replenish my stocks as I spend.)

Helps working at a motorcycle shop that's for sure!Good discounts and no shipping costs. hard to beat.

Thanks for the compliment on my store. It is really however still quite empty. It’s an unbelievably slow process listing everything, but it's starting to bulk up. Let me know if there is anything in particular you are looking for in one of those listed categories.

If you did buy something you would be the stores first customer Grin

We can combine ship according to weight and you can get a real quick shipping quote from the shopping cart without having to register or anything.

BTW is that an airhead Beemer in your avatar?

I feel like the vast majority of people are investors right now. Is anyone actually using bitcoin to buy things? If so, what? I've purchased other cryptocurrencies with it, but that's it so far...

Just bought more mining gear yesterday at www.scan.co.uk, now accepting bitcoins, so much easier!

Woot for those of us who truly believe in and ACTUALLY spend it! I have tipped multiple people for good advice and replaced a fried 7950 with a 270x thanks to TD! Just before this past crash too, so I feel fortunate...its like I got 15% off...feels good. Tongue

Isn't all they have the 10gh/s units??
I never find any other units there just those.

Edit for my stupidity:  Of course there are graphics cards, psu's and such.

7 BTC worth of mining gear at Tiger direct. - yesterday

Too many things to recall over the past 3.5 years.
