What did you buy Today?

We talk about what did you do today. I want to start a new thread asking those who are interested in buying stocks to disclose what are they buying? It could be for short term or long term? It could be stocks, mutual funds, your favorite bonds,ETF, CEF.For example today the price of FAS was down & I decided to buy 20shares for short term gains.

I made an investment in McDonald's today. A short term sausage & egg biscuit. Didn't want it to spoil.

Along the same line, I made an investment in Amazon. Bought a wedding present for my daughter. Might have been cheaper to buy out the whole company.

I am making an investment in a recliner. I always wanted one and finally found one that was comfortable but not poofy.

My eneloop batteries arrived this morning from Amazon.com. Thank you, T-Al for the recommendation. I used the cash back Amazon gives me for using their credit card. So how do I record the purchase?

Today I am buying VWITX and VWSTX (muni bond funds).

I opened a Giving Account with Fidelity this morning and I am trying to figure out what steps I need to take in order to fund it.

I am shopping for a new car.

I completed step one of selling/transferring/buying process by writing on a yellow sticker: open Roth at Vanguard and have them move money out of existing IRA at another brokerage. I'm considering leaving the money in a Vanguard MM fund until the process is complete and the dust settles. There's no rush, I'm retired. Next step, check out their website.

Now, that's what I call working with your nest eggs.

It is nothing short of miraculous. The only thing I bought today was lunch out...garden salad with tuna and an unsweetened iced tea.

When I wrote the original note, I meant to say What stocks do you want to buy or have bought today? Not what you bot from grocery store or from eBay.
