For those who confused as me.

쓰다 means to write and also means bitter.

Yes indeed. As an adjective, it means bitter yet as a verb basically means to use. (i.e. time, money, energy, resource)

돈을 쓰다 = to spend money (literally to use money)

하찮은 일에 시간을 쓰다 = to spend one's time on the trivial matter/business

하찮은 = trivial = 사소한

일 = matter, thing, business, work
