How do you do this?
I've got leftover money and want to start putting it somewhere. Do you just go through a Vanguard and buy into the same funds over and over again?
Just FYI, That $2K is not "left over money", I invest before I pay any bills, buy any food, or buy any toys. It's off the top, it's paying yourself first. NOBODY gets paid before I pay myself, Not the utility company, not the bank, not THE frickING IRS. Now, I still pay those bills, but my priority is to myself and everyone else can wait in line.
I have a auto draft set up with American Funds and Fidelity. And that $2K goes to the same funds, month in, and month out. When I have leftover money that I want to invest in the market, I can buy funds from either firm in taxable accounts or I can buy stocks in my Trade King account.
