Lots of people have debt. Lots of people also don’t know how to best pay off that debt. I’m working on a webapp which tells you exactly how to pay your debts off, in what order, with how much money, and when you should do so.
Some features include:
- Local Storage: All of your info is stored locally to your device.
- Extra payments: Want to pay your debt down even faster? Enter in some extra money and see how much faster you can pay your debts off.
- It’s printable: It even prints out checkboxes next to each loan for you to check them off as they’re paid.
- Monthly or Daily compounding interest
I plan on writing a more in-depth post about the behind the scenes stuff soon. But to put it short: I spent a solid weekend putting this together, learned backbone.js, and got my front end skills back to where they were a year ago. Fun times!
Since this thing is only a prototype, I’m more than happy to hear any feedback on it. I plan on putting this tool on its own domain soon, I just need to find a good name for it!
