Re: Difficult time sitting on my hands...

OP, you definitely aren't sitting on your hands! Paying things off is the best and most active thing you can do to increase your score. You've gotten yourself in a bad place but are working your way out of it. Good job and keep it going!

What's in my wallet:

Left to right:
NPSL ($10k approved)
$5k (EMV - Chip & PIN)
$7k (Visa Sig + EMV)
$7.5k (WEMC)

Transunion FICO: 709 (8/13/12) -> 740 (9/24/12)
Credit Karma: 772 (11/24/13)
Credit Sesame: 755 (11/5/13)
