In One for the Money by Elder Marvin J. Ashton, the concept of a debt elimination calendar was presented. The calendar is a simple approach to eliminating debt by using funds freed up when one debt is retired to pay down remaining debt. While you have to be disciplined, this approach has helped many become debt free.
This calculator assumes that the debts with higher interest rates are paid first while making minimum payments on other debts. You may also apply an extra amount to the monthly payment to pay off your debt even sooner. (Enter the name of each debt for the calculator to work properly.)
