As the Cash Cow Couple, we know very little about cows, but we know quite a bit about money. As you may have guessed, this blog is written by a couple. To be more specific, a 20’s couple who happen to love a good deal almost as much as they love each other. We are on a mission to achieve financial independence while maintaining a healthy, happy life.
We got married at roughly the same time that we each graduated with a bachelor’s degree. To celebrate marriage and our new careers, we didn’t upgrade our vehicles, buy a big house, or a new wardrobe. We sold everything that we didn’t need, including our second car. We used that money, and our paychecks, to pay off our student loans and begin building a secure financial future. Through hard work and a very high savings rate, we paid off roughly $25,000 in student loans and increased our net worth by more than $50,000 in our first year of marriage. That growth has continued upward each year.
We share our story to encourage readers. If we did it, so can you. You can get out of debt, save for retirement, and provide for your family without worrying about the monthly paycheck.
