First Investment
« on: June 17, 2014, 03:37:30 PM »
I bought my first shares through Vanguard today. Wouldn't have been able to save up enough money or even had thought about it if it weren't for this blog and all of the great people on the forum here.  Looking forward to building my new found Stash. Thanks!

Congratulations!  That's a HUGE step, and it'll start to snowball before you know it.  :)
