Back-to-School/College Shopping Just Got Cheaper
Back-to-school/back-to-college shopping just got cheaper, thanks to the retail juggernaut and behemoth, Amazon. On Thursday, Amazon announced that its annual "Prime Day" deals will include discounts on select office products, backpacks, kids edition devices, smart TVs and rugs, among other items.

Amazon made this decision based on a 2018 National Retail Federation poll, which found that more than half of back-to-school and back-to-college consumers plan to shop on Prime Day. The National Retail Federation announced on Thursday that back-to-school and back-to-college shopping is expected to reach $82.8 billion this year. 

Our take: Although Amazon is appealing due to its ease and price points, don't forget to shop/buy local from your friends and neighbors.

What is a Trust?
A trust is a legal device for the management of property. Through a
trust, one person ("grantor") transfers the legal title to property to
another person ("trustee"), who then manages the property in a specified manner for the benefit of a third person ("beneficiary"). A separation of the legal and beneficial interests in the property is a common denominator of all trusts.
