This is a great sign.
I recall watching a young man talk about his car.  That car was his pride and joy. One complaint he had though was it was like a baby.  He had to keep "feeding" it.  This is the sign he used for "feeding." What he meant was he had to keep spending a lot of money on it.

This same sign can be used to mean "nourish."

The right hand is somewhat near the mouth.  The left hand is lower and more forward. Bring the hands forward and down a bit. Use a double movement.

FEED (animation)

(This sign can be inflected and done with one hand to mean "spend money."  To inflect the sign, pretend you've got a quarter under your thumb.  As you move your hand forward, slide the quarter forward and off your fingers as if sliding it into a vending machine.)
