These are my all-time favorite online calculators for different things. Remember, calculators are only as good as the information you put into them, that is especially true for retirement calculators.

When using the WSJ retirement calculator, make sure you think about what your retirement burn rate might be, what other income you might have during retirement (such as social security... use calculator number 2 to help with that).

1. All types of calculators:

2. Social Security Benefit Estimator:

3. Deciding whether to lease or buy a car:

4. To figure out what you will need to RETIRE and how to get there:

5. Savings - I think simple is better here:

6. Debt snowballing or paydown:

7. Mortgages
