Helping young couples to manage their shared expenses

Motivation?

  • Hearing a lot of stories from my close friends
  • Remembering various arguments of parents related to shared finance
  • Personal experience

Initial research

  • Interviews of 3 couples
  • Talking about general finance management
  • Budgeting and spending apps came into discussion

To have a solid budget for a month helps us greatly to spend money evenly and reasonably

It's definitely rational to take money out from a set budget than to throw it away and realise that there's no more in the half of the month.

Seeing how much and on what I spend money would help me a lot

Insights from the research

Prototyping key interaction

Using Prototype On Paper allowed me to quickly prototype the key interaction from the concept – dialogue between the both sides of a couple on how much money they will invest in their relationship.

Values

  • More time spent together
  • Fun will be more evenly spread in the month
  • Less personal financial issues
  • Less financial harm when one partner pays too much
