Re: Been awhile...

I can totally understand. We sometimes need to step back & focus on the path to the yellow brick road ahead. I've been working on strategies to improve some, delete some, AVOID some...:smileyvery-happy:

 

Take care of yourself....great to see you !

Re: Been awhile...

Hey LS, I to have slipped a bit and now have about $1300 in revolving balance between the Barclay, Amazon, Costco TE, and Delta gold.

 

Though I will be back down to 0% util by March 1st, I've been down on myself as well.  I need to remember where I was when I only had $320 in CL, and now that I have $21k, that it does not mean I can be sloppy.

5/2012: 560 credit scores across the board and $500 secured CC
12/2014: 750+ scores across the board and $80k in revolving credit

Get those baddies removed!!!

Re: Been awhile...

Welcome back, LS.  Sorry to hear about the post-holidays debt.  It can be easy to slip when you have a lot of credit available.  You've just got to remember that those aren't loan products in your wallet; they're discount cards.

Re: Been awhile...

Thanks android!! You know sometimes I'll think about buying something big and think back to all the conversations on here with you and others about being responsible with my cards and stop myself. Its a good feeling!!!

Re: Been awhile...

Hi LS! Welcome back! I'm in the same boat.  I went a little crazy over the holidays with my spending so I'm carrying a balance on way too many of my credit cards and my utl is high right now.  I've been paying it down but I estimate it won't be until April that my scores recover.  Lesson learned. :smileywink:

Re: Been awhile...

It is always easy to borrow, much harder to pay back. Sometimes the old saying, "wait three days" then revisit and see if you really need that item. Many times you don't. Just helps to give you a check point before you purchase.
