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.

Personal Finance Calculator Menu

Calculators designed to teach you the art of $elf-defense.

The personal finance calculators and tools in this section will help you to calculate net worth, checking account reconciliation, compound interest, present value, future value, opportunity costs, and more. The ultimate goal of this section is to help you to become aware of the important financial concepts that our k-12 education has left up to us to discover on our own, which in turn has made us easy prey for the marketing geniuses employed by the corporate world. Once we become aware of and understand these concepts we will begin to make decisions that will serve our own best interests, rather than serve the best interests of those who stand to gain from our financial illiteracy.
