The Stock Market can be a guessing game. So I choose to invest in great pieces that will carry me through many occasion's. And finding them at thrift stores? Priceless! All the pieces in this outfit came from thrifting and (including the purse) the whole look was under $30! WooHoo!

So, you may be wondering why I am talking about stocks today. Well, my son Josh and two friends made up a team to compete in the "Stock Market Game". It is a great opportunity for children to become educated in commerce and business. And they won for their region!!! So we got a trip to Atlanta for a program and awards. I am so proud of these boys. And may I give a shout out to their Honors teacher, Mrs. Brychell, who is amazing!!! Teachers do NOT get enough love.
The name of their team was "Men In Green" and their t-shirts had a gold $ sign on the back (thanks Teresa).

Since Josh and his team did so well, I found out what the main money makers were that they invested in. It turns out that they thought outside the box with "Game Stop" and "WWE"!!! I was like "You can invest in wresting???? Seriously???" LOL!
But, as I said, I take stock in the fact that the best market to invest are thrift stores!
