Our Story

As the Cash Cow Couple, we know very little about cows, but we know quite a bit about money. We are on a mission to achieve financial freedom while maintaining a healthy, happy life.

We got married after each graduating 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 did the opposite. We sold everything we didn’t need, including our second car, and used the money and our paychecks to pay off our student loans and began 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 can do it, so can you. You can get out of debt, save for retirement, and provide for your family without worrying about the monthly paycheck.
