A while ago I wrote a spreadsheet to help a client understand that if he bought a Bugaboo on his credit card he'd still be paying for it when the child started University

here it is

And then on a thread this evening, somebody asked about how to explain the risks of an interest only mortgage
so I wrote this

Enter your figures into the highlighted boxes and the sheets do the rest ....
I check them every few weeks and correct any glitches ...

That would be a very good idea I think

dear MNHQ
if I link all four spreadsheets into an OP, would you be able to pin it to the top for everybody to find easily?

We always reserve 'sticky' threads for official MNHQ business, because as soon as we step off that path we run the risk of appearing to be picking favourites from the board, which as you can imagine would quickly lead us into deep water. We know that these spreadsheets are very well-used though so we'll have a think about how we might be able to highlight them better.

We'll come back when we've got something more useful to say!

No worries : this board is comparatively quiet and so long as I do not get reported for bumping the thread : I may start a new one
then I'm happy to do the hard work
I had the same issue with my Ebay Me page when James the Pink left and his successor lost the pin on it grin
