I find the Cool Million Calculator a fun diversion on this rainy retrospective day. I'm currently set to be a millionaire at age 66. Well, not really, I need to get a job first... details, details.
Over at Dinkytown they have a Rent Vs. Buy Calculator. I fooled around with the numbers and the difference between renting an apartment for $1500 amonth and putting $30,000 down on a $250,000 apartment is a monthly mortgage payment of $1794. $250,000 for an apartment in NYC, good luck with that.
Poorer Than You posted a little incentive on paying off your credit card; a reality check. Use this calculator to discover just how much that 3 AM dinner at Schiller's really cost you.
And if you want to know why you shouldn't even be going out to eat at 3 AM in the first place and should just take your hungry drunk ass home, this Lunch Savings Caluculator can push you out the door. Of course it was built for brown baggers, but we at PiggyBankBlues eschew the nine-to-five. Substitute Lunch Savings with Eating, Drinking, and Merrymaking Savings, and you're good to go.
