Looking for a quick and easy way to know how much you need to save per pay period for a larger expense that isn’t due for a while? The How Much Save Calculator is here for you!
I use and recommend YNAB – You Need A Budget because (among about a million other reasons) it does this work for you and gives you amazing gamified visuals of how far along you are on your journey. And if you are able to set aside more one month? Or can’t set aside as much? It automatically updates the amount you need to save the next month to stay on track. If you would like a free trial of YNAB or are interested in my group coaching program go ahead and shoot me an email at email@example.com or DM me on Instagram @PunkRockMoney
But, if you are using a different system – an app that doesn’t do these calculations for you, a spreadsheet, pen and paper or cash envelopes – the How Much To Save Calculator is your hack to get that information quickly and easily.
Whether you’re looking for Monthly, weekly, every other week, or twice a month calculations (people who get paid on the 1st and 15th – I got you), How Much To Save has you covered. Just enter what you’re saving for, how much you need to save and when you want the money by and the math is done for you.
Already have a few ideas of things you need to calculate? Awesome! If you’d like more help getting your brain noodling on what other “surprise” expenses might come “out of thin air” and derail your financial plans, check out The List. We’ve compiled over 260 things that are just waiting to bite you in the butt when you’re least expecting it. I’m talking passport renewals, girl scout cookie season, CEU credits you have to do every 3 years… Fall fairs, apple picking, teacher gifts, season tickets, ski passes, your Amazon Prime renewal, annual credit card fees, instrument tuning, your CPR certification… How are you supposed to remember all these things?? In the past, I’ve had to tell people that the first YEAR (or longer) of trying to get their financial shit together can be rough trying to roll with the punches. I’d wager that 99% of “surprise” expenses aren’t actually surprises but The List helps you keep them from being out of sight out of mind.
