Sure, we'd all love to snap our fingers and achieve our financial goals, particularly this time of year when we're riding high on resolutions. But successfully paying down credit card debt and saving money can only happen if you go in with a plan, and a realistic one at that.
Want to be debt free? Use our credit card payment calculator to determine how long it will take while paying a certain amount each month. If saving money is at the top of your list, whether it's for something fun or to build up your rainy day fund, use my savings calculator to figure out how long it will take to reach your goal.
