        When the world is falling down around you it can feel like every phone call
is a creditor and the very ringing makes you cringe. Living from pay check to pay
check with a majority of your money used to pay interest on your loans is no way
to live at all. So you determine to make a plan and begin the work to payoff your

         Making the decision to pay down what you owe is the first step in the right
direction, but any good plan needs information, and in this case you need to know
how long it will take to pay down and how difficult a financial task you have set
before         yourself.      Enter      the       simple      debt       calculator to help you set a budget
for paying off what you owe.

         Enter the details of what you owe into the debt calculator above including
the interest rate, the total amount outstanding and your desired payoff period and
the calculator will display the payment size you will need to make in order to meet
your payoff goal on schedule.

                                Calculate The Interest Costs

         One of the most useful pieces of financial information our payoff debt
calculator will provide you is the amount of money you will be paying towards

interest over the life of your debt loan. Credit card debts can be one of the greatest
offenders, with industry standard high interest rates, but even car loans and
mortgages often have high loan costs that are often overlooked.

      Use the debt calculator to determine how much money you will be paying
towards interest, and be outraged! I'm serious. Sear into your memory the high
cost of long term debt borrowing and determine to never let it happen again, save
on your own terms.

      Calculate the total costs involved in borrowing the money and literally
imagine all of life's pleasures that could have been purchased if the money had not
been paid to interest instead. Use the debt calculator to calculate the emotional cost
of borrowing that is often lost when paying bills from month to month.

                         Use The Results To Calculate a Budget

      The debt calculator is going to give you a direct estimate on the length of
time required to pay down your debts, with an ultimate goal of eliminating them
altogether. My recommendation is to use the calculations to help construct a
reasonable and actionable budget. Calculate your commitment to paying off your
debt and choose a monthly payment schedule that will still leave you some
semblance of balance in your life.

      Statistics show that a commitment to progressively paying your debts rather
than an extreme attempt at taking on too much of what you owe each month,
leaving no room for life's emergencies and the costs of smaller pleasures is not
successful. It backfires on you if you feel you are depriving yourself too much in
your budget calculations. The debt payoff calculator is just a projection tool to help
you determine what is reasonable, and what is possible with what you owe.

      Sure a payoff debt plan includes some sacrafices, but in the end, it is just
money, and the food on your family table is more important than saving an
additional month of interest payments over the course of your loan.

                            How To Use The Debt Calculator

    Lastly, when using the debt calculator and creating a budget to deal with your
debts, we recommend tackling a single debt at a time. Pick your highest interest
rate debt, regardless of the balance and focus all your payoff energies on that loan.
The debt calculator will help you predict how fast you will be able to payoff this
account. Then move on to the next highest interest rate loan.

     To create a long term budget to tackle a number of debts use the debt
calculator on each of the balances you owe, marking down the individual payments
you choose and the length of time that will be required and then string the plan into
a debt payoff timeline.

      Stick to the budget you decide upon. Tackle your debts with a commitment
and dedication the financial health of your family deserves and watch as month to
month you payoff your debt as you calculated with the payoff debt calculator
provided above.
