The saving calculator also provides a number of options for how often your investment is compounded. In fact, you can choose from six options for compounding, from daily to annually.

Saving Extra Money by Giving Up the Latte!

Could you be saving extra money by making some minor adjustments in your daily routine? Saving even a small amount of money on a frequent basis can make a significant contribution to your financial picture in the long run, especially if you were to invest those savings. Use the saving calculator to see how much of a difference it could make.

For example, let’s say you decide to stop buying a $4 latte every day and instead invest that money. You think you could earn a 5 percent return on your investment. You want to see what would happen over the course of ten years.

On the savings interest calculator, leave the Lump Sum Initial Deposit blank. On the Additional Deposit line, choose “Daily” and enter a “4”. Fill in a “5” for the Annual Interest Rate, choose “Annual” for the Compounding Frequency, and fill in “10” for the Number of Years. Press compute. The results are pretty amazing. You will see that in ten years you would accumulate over $18,800!
