Getting Rid of Debt

The Debt Snowball is one of the most tried and true approaches to getting out of debt. Below you will find a link to a great description of what the debt snowball is and a link to a calculator that will allow you to fill in your personal finances and see how the snowball will work for you.

Debt Snowball Calculator

This calculator will show you how much time and money you could save by paying off your debts using the "rollover" method. Using the rollover method, as each smaller debt is paid off, the freed-up payment amount is then applied to the next larger debt, and so on until all debts are paid off. As you are about to see, the rollover method can save you a ton of money in interest charges, and get you debt free in a very short period of time.
