Yes, that's about what our usage always was at home when I was a kid too -- used up all the funds on something. But that didn't necessarily mean they were squandered, as that would depend on the item's utility value.

As with Martin, though, I would have said the word should really have been spelled "blewed".

(Also, note that Susan didn't blue a mincing machine per se -- rather she blued a birthday present on a mincing machine. Presumably the present was a cash donation of some considerable amount, which allowed her to only just afford the mincer.)
