Welcome to Dink-ville
For those of you who don’t know, a DINK is someone in a Dual-Income, No Kids couple. That’s us. We’re Tommy and Jaclyn, and we are in that special time in our lives: No kids yet, careers are just getting good, and we’re starting to adult – hard. There are a lot of couples like us that are in that limbo of limited responsibilities, making more money than we’ve made before, but still planning big plans for the future and taking deliberate steps toward financial finesse. We wanted to write a blog about this rare period – this moment in time before kiddos when it’s just us trying to be the best possible versions of ourselves. We’ll be writing about our adventures in buying our first home, getting promotions, navigating 401Ks and FSAs, and saving for the future.
This is about living our best frugal life before kids which includes financial planning, careers, healthcare, friends, family, travel, and all on a dime.
