This is a simple age calculator that calculates your age down to the second.
The age calculator should be relatively self-explanatory, just enter your birthdate into the tool. You can also enter the time of birth (if you want to), otherwise it will assume you were born at midnight.
This visualization is based on the the very interesting Wait But Why post “Your Life in Weeks” by Tim Urban. It’s a bit humbling to see your life laid out in this way, and to think about how you will spend the (hopefully many) remaining weeks of your life.

This is an update to the Financial Freedom Calculator. That one still works well, but this version adds the ability to add multiple savings amounts representing different periods in time. This allows you to visualize your progress towards financial freedom rather than just giving you the latest value for your freedom date. It does so by showing different colors for the different periods (you specify them by adding different savings amounts and names). It should be fairly obvious looking at the calculator, but if you had a total of 25000 in savings in 2016 and 70000 in 2017, then your calculator is colored in two sections representing the freedom days you had achieved in the two different years.
Freedom days refers to the number of days that your retirement savings could sustain you (without working) each year (indefinitely) at your current spending level. Once you reach 365 freedom days per year, you’ve got enough money saved up to never have to work again. The freedom date then tells you the date through which your retirement savings would support you each year. For example, if you have 100 freedom days then your spending could be covered through April 10th, each year.
How close are you to 365 “freedom days”?The goal of the freedom calculator is to let you know how close to financial independence (i.e. freedom) you are, measuring your progress in terms of freedom days. The key determinants for retirement are total retirement savings and annual spending.
