Hi there and Welcome to DuoDollars!
My name is Gabi and this is my husband DJ! We’re so glad you’re here!
We started this blog as a way to not only share our personal journey with our finances, but to help young millennial couples who feel lost, have no direction, or simply don’t know where to turn when it comes to setting themselves up financially.
Trust me, we’re not financial experts or gurus by any means, we’re simply just a pair of young millennials trying to figure out this finance stuff one day at a time.
We’ve made so many mistakes along the way that we’ll share with you. But we’ve also had some small wins and some big wins that we’ll share with you too!
Let me tell you – neither of us came from money. In fact, both of us came from families that either struggled to make ends meet, had a poor relationship with money, or both.
We’re determined to make things different for the next generation of our family.
But you see, this isn’t all about the money.
Sure, we enjoy nice things.
But we’re not really enticed by materialism.
Our goals are a bit different.
DJ and I want financial freedom so that we can spend time at home raising our future children together. We want to travel the world. We want to help our families. We want to give back and participate in humanitarian work.
Ultimately, Grant Sabatier said it best – “Money is not the goal, TIME is. Time to do what brings you joy. Time to spend time with those you love. Time to take care of yourself. Time to live the life you want.”
What We Desire For You
We truly want to help you along your financial journey.
We want you to absolutely crush your debt.
We want you to set financial goals so big they scare you.
We want you to connect deeply with your partner.
You are not alone on this journey.
Here at DuoDollars, we want you to know you have someone on your team – someone who will cheer for you, uplift and encourage you. Someone who believes in you and understands where you are and what you are going through.
We are here in support of you! We want you to achieve your financial goals, dreams, and aspirations. We strive to always provide quality material that teaches you how to do exactly that.
On this website, you’ll find resources that have helped us along our journey. We promise to only share the products we actually use, trust, and are in support of.
We are nowhere close to achieving our financial goals. But we are on our way. We hope you will not only join us along our journey, but that you will invite us along your own journey as well!
The One Financial Account You NEED As A Couple
I love shopping. There’s something about spending a few hours at the mall or my local TJ Maxx or Marshalls that always makes me happy. But nothing irks me more than hearing the following words… “How much did you spend?” It instantly kills my mood…
