The new Debt Payoff Planner makes tracking debt simple. It shows:
- Current balances on all credit cards and loans
- Interest rates for each liability based on your input
- Minimum monthly payments based on your input
- Progress toward your debt payoff goals
- Estimated monthly interest totals
- Projected debt payoff date (based on your inputs)
- Total interest paid over the lifetime of the debt
- Recommended payments to reach your desired payoff date
Customize Your Debt Payoff Strategy
The Debt Payoff Planner can model the debt snowball method, avalanche, or a custom ranking payoff strategy for up to 25 accounts for up to 30 years.
See how different payoff amounts and other variables impact your debt freedom date. Experiment with variables including monthly payment amounts and time to debt payoff.
Then make a custom debt payoff plan based on your actual balances and real-world numbers.
Budgeting for Debt Payoff
It’s recommended to make a quick budget before making a debt payoff plan. A budget can also help you find expenses to cut, giving you more to put towards debt.
Combining the Debt Payoff Planner with the budgeting tools in the Tiller Foundation Template will give you a master plan for transforming your financial life.
However, a budget isn’t required to use the Debt Planner template. In fact, you don’t even need to categorize transactions to use the Debt Planner spreadsheet.
