I like money, you like money. When I can't find something to spend my money on, I like to put my money to work for me.
I have a little bit of money right now that's just sitting in a savings account, and I'd rather be making more than a measly 2% (!). However, I've never really ventured into the stock market, or even shopped around for different mutual funds.
Enter Google Finance. In five minutes, I set up a portfolio of 15 different stocks that have been recommended to me by various websites. My plan is to watch their performance over the next month or so, and then make decisions on where to invest based on that.
The best part? Google also lets you have some 'play money'. E.g. I've selected $10,000 to be placed in a few of the stocks that I think will do well. I'll let you know how that goes, but after 3 days I'm down about $50. Whatever.
Check Google Finance out! Maybe one day you'll be a millionaire.
