Let's say there is a salesperson who are trying to entice their product that you believe it is extremely not worthy to spend your money(just a salestalk) Do you say:

Nah, it's not worth it spending your money on this thing.

Or

it's not worth the money to spend on this thing.

"It's not worth it, spending money on this thing" is fine, but you can remove the redundant second "it".

It's not worth spending X on Y.

It's not worth spending X to do Y.

As you guess, you don't have to use "spend". You can simply say:

X isn't worth the Y.

Examples:

My boss wants me to spend way too much time at the office, but it's not worth what he's paying me.

I don't get it. It's not worth spending all the time and money on building a giant wooden thing for Burning Man, if in the end you're just going to burn it.

  • The examples here have confused me, they are different from your answer coz you changed the pronouns and the object. Still thx – John Arvin Feb 8 '18 at 11:43
  • Can I say... ''it's not worth spending money enrolling on your course''? – John Arvin Feb 8 '18 at 12:49

You don't really need to say "this thing" at all.

It's not worth spending your money on it.

Also, assuming that the person you are speaking to knew what "thing" you were talking about, you could shorten it down to:

It's not worth it.

Which means the same thing.

    Thx. But can I say 'it's not worth the money?'' – John Arvin Feb 7 '18 at 15:32
  • Yes that works too. – Scotland141 Feb 7 '18 at 15:34
  • Wait up hehe, is it worth the spend or worth the money? – John Arvin Feb 7 '18 at 16:45
  • Don't they both mean the same thing? When you say worth the money, the implication is that you want to know if it's worth spending it. – Scotland141 Feb 7 '18 at 16:49
  • Mostly yeah, coz I already said 'it's worth the spend' but the other one is different, it may be 'worth the spend(time, energy). – John Arvin Feb 7 '18 at 18:15
