About the Redesign

If you visited this site prior to September 15th, 2018, you've no doubt noticed that I've since launched a complete redesign of the website.

If you're not happy with the new design, I sincerely apologize. I would have preferred to keep the old desktop design, but considering the majority of my site's users are now accessing the site from small-screen, touch-enabled, mobile devices, and considering Google is now penalizing websites for not being mobile/thumb friendly, I was left with no choice but to switch to a responsive, mobile-first design.

The good news is that now that I have combined the three separate versions of the site (mobile, desktop, and ad-free member) into a single design, this will free up a ton of my time for working to make the mobile-optimized calculators more desktop/laptop friendly. In fact, some of the redesigned calculators already offer a desktop-optimized form that becomes visible when you increase the width setting of the calculator (within the "Calculator Preferences" expandable panel).

Thank you in advance for your help and patience as I work to improve the redesign.

Budgeting Income Calculator

This calculator will forecast the combined household spendable income for each of the next 12 months -- for up to eight income sources, regardless of pay period type (weekly, bi-weekly, etc.). Plus, you can also view and print-out a pay period calendar for each income source that you enter. The $ecret tab reveals an important key to successful budgeting.

If the income source does have a Semi-Monthly pay period, enter the two days of the month that you normally get paid on. For example, if you usually get paid on the 1st and 15th, enter 1 in the first field and enter 15 in the second field.

For example, if your last pay day was on March 24th, 2014, you would select Mar from the month drop-down menu, 24 from the day menu, and 2014 from the year menu. Note that in some cases days of the month over 28 will be set at 28 to accommodate the month of February.
