Re: Garden Club Meeting - December 2012

I was a good gardener for 6 months (April -Nov10).  I was on a mission to improve scores to access prime CC and homeownership by paying off all my debts - 3 Tax Liens, Chargeoff, 2 collections;and $1600 in active CC before the holidays.  Mission nearly accomplished- I only owe JCP $122.  Scores had improved over 110 pts in that time across the board.  So I took the plunge and dove in apping 5 times in November.  SUCCESS!!!!  2 Barclay cards, Walmart and CU Mastercard (BOA turned me down).  I'm done until at least June when I hope to have broke 750 score and nailed down a mortgage.  Happy Holidays to all and good gardening!

Re: Garden Club Meeting - December 2012

I'm still here. 

 

Frankly, I'm getting to the point where I'm not sure I'm making much progress...I'll go start a new thread and get some thoughts...

 

Meanwhile, no apps for me, and no real itchiness...the itch really DOES fade with a little self restraint at first.  :smileytongue:

Re: Garden Club Meeting - December 2012

I'm still in the garden, going strong.  No apps and no soft CLIs either this month.  The big news for me is that I was able to find a new job, so I rewarded myself with a sweet new Gibson Les Paul electric guitar.  I've been scrimping and saving for so long that it was nice to splurge on something fun. :-)

Re: Garden Club Meeting - December 2012

Would have received my gold spade on Friday, but after speaking to several people they all stated to maximize my score I need 3 revolving credit cards. So I applied for Barclay who denied me in June 2012 because of no revolving credit and now six months later I was approved :smileyhappy: Will stay in garden until June 2013. I am loving this 6 month gardening.

Re: Garden Club Meeting - December 2012

I have learned that UTIL=Benadry. My scores have officially tanked nearly 100 points thanks to the new INQs, reduced AAoA, but mostly UTIL.  I know they will rebound as I get them paid back down again over the next few months, so there is 0 itchiness for me right now.

Starting Score: 10/1/2011 EQ 568 TU 593
Current Score: EQ 664 TU 700 EX 701 (FAKO)
