Yes. We have a mixture of ETFs, Vanguard funds, Dodge&Cox funds, stocks, TIAA-CREF and other odds and ends. I think ETFs are as good as any of the things we invest in. You do pay a commission to purchase them, so only buy them when the commission is less than 0.07% of the purchase amount in order to keep expenses low.
If you are going to DCA every month or two a sub-$5000 amount, I think you would be better off in a mutual fund.
