The Monthly Payment Schedule is your yellow brick road. Each brick represents a monthly payment. These monthly payments have been carefully layed out to ensure you get out of debt as fast as possible. You follow the yellow brick road by making each payment.

Along the way you will encounter transitions. Transitions are a good things. A transition happens when the last payment is made to a creditor. When a creditor is paid off, it frees up some money. That freed up money gets shifted to the next creditor. This shift is called a transition.

The first transition is shown by the red outlined section below. The monthly payment going to Sears gets shifted to MasterCard. It is partially shifted in March because Sears has smaller last payment. It is fully shifted in April because Sears is now completely paid off.

The second and third transitions are highlighted below. The monthly payments from paid off accounts is shifted to the next priority debt.

These transitions form what is called a payment snowball. This video, taken from Credit Card Math, explains the concept of payment snowballing and demonstrates how the transitions are created.

❝Shortly after I started using Zilch I was eligible to buy a house❞

I was looking through my cancelled checks to shred old records and found a check to you for Zilch written on 10/3/1999 for $34.00. Money well spent.

Thank you. Your program accelerated my debt reduction. Shortly after I started using Zilch I was eligible to buy a house and have almost never carried a balance into the next month.

Thanks again.

"Zilch does one thing and does it very well. It gets you out of debt."

To make sure this wasn't just computer wizardry, I printed the reports and asked a financial consultant to check them for accuracy.

He got very similar bottom lines but it took him considerably longer to do the figuring using his computer spreadsheet.
