    Thanks for these worksheets! I am going to try the debt snowball one, that looks like it is really useful. As for the “How much house can you afford?” there are a couple of calculators that I like using from Bankrate and Michael Bluejay’s website that do all the calculations for me (I’m lazy!)

      If you want an ecalculator for snowballing, you could try whatsthecost.com.

      I love Bankrate, too! I will have to try Michael Bluejay’s (haven’t heard that one). I like to use the internet for lazy calculations, but sometimes I enjoy having all my terms on paper as a visual reminder.

    My husband found a debt snowball spreadsheet for free at thebathroomdoor.com. (Sorry, I don’t know a more specific location!) It’s great because he can drop in our numbers, and it gives a calculation of when each debt will be paid off.

    These are great worksheets, as well. It’s good of you to share!

      Oh, another snowball spreadsheet online. Usually, I use whatsthecost.com, but its the not user friendliest around (still good though because I love the snowball spreadsheet it produces that you can copy and paste into Excel). I will have to give it a try. Thank you!

      Thanks for visiting. Hope you know I just spread word around on twitter that there is a new PF blog. :D Don’t be surprised if you get some ‘hellos’.

      I like having a pen and paper kind of budget to use with my excel spreadsheet. Hey, I’m a detailed kind of gal. :)
      I am glad I could help. I’m going to add you to my blogroll, too!

      Hi Frugal Trenches,

      I hope all is well. Thank you for stopping by. I do hope people can benefit from these spreadsheets. Maybe one day I can benefit from the “how much house can I afford”. :)

      Have a wonderful Holiday! :)

    At a glance this site is a bit off topic. It could be very relevant for some though. It is free information on getting a truly free credit report and even the all elusive free score.
    Free as in no money no or ever and no subscription needed…
