    Question "Spend on,doing ,for"

    Hi,
    Would anyone please tell me if we can use "for " with spend,too?

    For example:
    I spend lots of time for studying.

    I spend my time with my family.

    I spend all my money on buying book.

    I spend going cinema a lot.

    Thanks.

    The first two are possible with my corrections. The third one is incorrect.

    Did you mean "the fourth one" is incorrect?
