Personal loans, student loans and credit cards—oh my! If you’re juggling a few (or several) debts, life can feel pretty intense. Of course, you have to face reality to make it better … but it can be overwhelming and, sometimes, complicated to keep track of all the interest, minimum payments and due dates and figure out the smartest way to tackle those balances.

… that’s why so many people use snowball calculators. Enter your information and, boom! The numbers are crunched. You get an actionable plan that shows you which accounts to pay off first in order to be debt-free the soonest.

This means that, as you pay down your various debts or use your credit card to make purchases, you’ll only need to record the activity in YNAB. will sync with your YNAB account for the newest information and adjust accordingly.

With all of your information in, you can toggle between seven different debt repayment strategies to choose the one that works best for you. You also have an option to make additional payments towards your debt each month (which is an excellent choice, btw).

And, if you’re reluctant to connect a third-party application to your YNAB account, keep in mind that you can always revoke’s access, at any time, under your YNAB account settings. Look for “Authorized Apps” and click on the “revoke” link.

A Winning Combo
