Who do you use? I want to start taking some of the money that's currently going into savings and put it into stocks. Etrade was who I was leaning towards, but there seems to be other options too.
I'm lazy and boring and use Acorns. Its small, and most of our money is involved in I think 5 or 6 other firms. But Acorns is what I use for the small change stuff.
We use Charles Schwab, LPL, Fidelity for stock brockerage. Then John Hancock and I forget who my wife has for retirement. Vanguard for the kids college funds (and I think my dad and wifes uncle opened 2 accounts as well for them and forget who they went through).
We also have money in Roth IRA through LPL I believe, but we havent qualified to contribute last few years. May hit the reduced number this year with my wifes raised quota, she hasnt been getting the bigger sales payouts.
As you probably can tell, I do not handle our finances. My wifes mom passed when she was in college, and she immediately had to step in and do the books for her dads business. So, she is a bit of an expert on it at this point, and I just sit back and let her cook.
