You are taking your money? (And how to get some of it back!)

You are taking your money? Every day, someone has your money from you, or you give them, depending on whether you pay cash or EFTPOS ... Who are these companies that take their money, and how do I retrieve it?

As a father of four children and a passionate cook, I think I spend too much money in the grocery store ... Many of my income also goes towards the cost of housing, and the necessity of life ... No, no, clothes, mobile phones.

Food, glorious food.

Since I chose to give $ 900 each month Woolworth in exchange for food, it makes sense that I should have a share of the company that I support. In this way, could at least get some of my money back.

Secure my home involves payments to the local council (rates, water, land, taxes etc.), bank and home and contents insurance. Fortunately, getting a better deal on my insurance to assure you that I bank, so that the company has the money to the three, and I own a part of them to change.

Clothing, well, most of my stuff is corporate closet, so I definitely have the property of that company, and if I was working for me you can bet they would still have my company name printed on the chest .. . This would be deductible for tax reasons rather than vanity. Vanity and beautiful clothing is my wife's department, so I make sure I have lots of businesses as well.

DISCLAIMER: Before investing in any company, make sure you do your homework to ensure that the company is good and selling at a reasonable price. Also, get professional advice before investing.

Invest it passes, it seems easy ... Right?
Sometimes it is relatively easy to reverse it passes through. It is possible that with the Commonwealth Bank and Telstra mobile phone, so a quick phone call and you can buy shares in these companies. But what about companies that do not trade with the same name that are sold under? You may recognize that General Electric makes your toaster and your light bulb, but did you know that the giant U.S. Australia also owns the Myer Card, Loan Assistant Principal, and Australia AVCO Finance Guarantee Corp (AGC), among others?
