Money Essentials
The Prioritizer

This calculator helps you rank a series of goals or options which are most attractive to you.

In the spaces below, enter as many as 15 different goals to which you or your family aspire. Goals can be short-term, such as "Taking a great vacation this summer," or long-term like "Securing a comfortable retirement." The calculator will then ask you a series of questions that force you to choose between each possible pair of goals. Based on your answers, it will then compute a preference score for each goal and an overall rank order for the list.

Note: while the calculator is designed for choosing among financial goals, it can be used to rank any series of options -- such as deciding which movie to see, which vehicle to buy or which college to attend.
