Get out those calculators!

Have you ever wondered what exactly you should be doing with your money? Vicki Cook and Amy Blacklock of Women Who Money pose these questions: “How much of my monthly income should I save? Should I invest or pay off debt? Which debt should I pay off first? What car loan can I afford? How much should I be investing for retirement? What’s my net worth?

These are just some of the critical money questions you may ask yourself as you work to build a solid financial house and plan for the future.

Yet answering these questions can also be confusing and time-consuming, leading you to inaction or making ill-advised financial moves. The good news is that various free online calculators can help you make better financial choices and manage your money.
