In my own, haphazard , way, I am focusing on my pile o' debt by getting rid of the smallest bill, paying them off and then taking the money I would have spent on that bill, and applying it to the next smallest bill. It's a sound principle in theory.

I used to have a little shareware program called Debt Blaster to help me calculate what payments I needed to make, and how much. Somewhere along the way, after three different computers, I have lost the program. I don't want to download and purchase it again. That seems foolish. Then again, I bought Supertramp's Breakfast in America on 8-track, cassette and now CD, so who am I kidding?

Yesterday, I discovered a freeware debt calculator called Debtonator. After I downloaded it, and clicked install, it went away. Twenty minutes later the install process started. By the time it finished it was time to go to work, so I haven't had a chance to play with it yet. Once I do, I'll post a review.

Making that final payment on the last of your credit card debt is one of the greatest feelings in the world.

For what it is worth, CNN.com offers an online debt calculator. It doesn't give you a way to get control of your credit rating, but it did print out a handy plan for me.
