Budgeting Your Finances

Relax! Budgeting can help you learn how much you're currently spending—and how to successfully reduce unnecessary spending.

Use our calculators to determine how much money you'll save by creating a sound budget, postponing purchases, or paying off your credit card balances early.


These calculators are provided only as general self-help tools. Results depend on many factors, including the assumptions you provide. We do not guarantee their accuracy, or applicability to your circumstances. These tools are not offers, representations or warranties by any member companies of the Principal Financial Group®, and do not describe any specific products or services they offer.
