Dollar Notes




Welcome to Get That Cheddar (GTC). 


My name is Shan and I am the proud founder of GTC. I created this blog to share my own relationship with money and personal finance. After getting myself out of a financial hole, I managed to not only get rid of my thousands of dollar’s worth of debt, but I am also on track to settle my 4th investment property by the age of 35 while simultaneously investing in other asset classes outside of real estate. 


I’ve always had a tumultuous relationship with money and never really knew where to start. I had always heard the term ‘budget’ and ‘investing’ but in all honesty, never really took the time to understand either of them in much detail. It was only when I met my current partner a few years back did I begin to take an interest in personal finance. He literally taught me to budget using an excel spreadsheet, and once I understood the basics – I was hooked! A few years on, I have no bad debt, I actively review my budget a few times per week and ensure I live well within my means. 


So now that I have a genuine love for personal finance and building wealth, I decided to create this blog as a tool to help inform others as well as a reminder of how far I’ve come on my finance journey. 


I hope you enjoy reading my content, and if there is anything specific you’d like me to write about, feel free to shoot me an email.
