This calculator will show you how much you will save if you make 1/2 of your mortgage payment every two weeks instead of making a full mortgage payment once a month. In effect, you will be making one extra mortgage payment per year--without hardly noticing the additional cash outflow. But, as your about to discover, you will certainly notice the increased cash flow that will occur when you pay your mortgage off way ahead of schedule!
This calculator will help you to compare the total interest charges of four different loans.
When buying a car most people fail to consider ALL of the expenses that will be generated by their purchase. And because nearly all car buying scenarios come with different variables (depreciation rates, interest rates, purchase prices, insurance costs, mpg ratings, etc.), it becomes extremely difficult to compare one buying scenario with another...until now that is. This calculator will not only help you to forecast the REAL COST of buying and owning a car, but it will also help you to more accurately compare the real cost of one car buying scenario with the real cost of a second car buying scenario.
This calculator will show you how much interest you will end up paying if you make only the minimum required payment on your credit card bill. It will also tell you how many minimum payments you will make before your balance is paid off (up to a maximum of 600 payments).
This calculator will show you the Forgone Interest Earnings that will result after spending a given dollar amount on a non-appreciating, non-necessary purchase.
This calculator will show you how much interest you will earn over a given period of time; at any given interest rate; based on an initial investment plus a fixed monthly addition. The calculator compounds monthly and assumes deposits are made at the beginning of each month.
If you work one hour and spend that hour's entire wage on a non-necessary, non-appreciating purchase, you have effectively limited the value of one hour's wage to its face value. On the other hand, if you were to invest all or part of the one hour's wage into an interest earning investment, this would serve to increase that hour's wage by an amount equal to the total interest earned by the investment. In other words, the person who is ultimately responsible for setting your hourly wage rate is not your boss--it's YOU! The calculator below will calculate the future value of your hourly wage based on the portion invested, the annual rate of return, and the number of years invested.
This calculator will show you how much you'll save over the course of your lifetime when permanently switching from any given high priced buying habit (name brand) to its functional, less expensive equivalent (generic). Plus, it will also show you how much interest you could earn if you were to invest all or part of those savings as you realized them. As you're about to see, "a penny saved" can REALLY ADD UP!
