I haven't checked in in a while, so I have a few updates. My husband got notifiied the weekend before summer classes started that he was ineligible for financial aid effective immediately (due to going over the allowed amount of hours, apparently even college credits earned in high school count), so he needed to apply for a private student loan. We went with Discover at first, and I had to cosign, but the school rejected it because Discover has the same standards for credit hours, so we had to both apply again with Wells Fargo/Sallie Mae. So that added 2 inquiries to my credit report, but it was a necessity.

 

Other than that, we are moving this month to a cheaper apartment, cutting cable, cutting back a lot on going out to eat, and sticking to a pretty tight budget. I'm paying off our credit cards (Amex and Chase have a balance right now) asap, and then following our budget every month down to the penny and paying off all purchases immediately!

 

So there's my gardening update. Not really paying attention to time anymore, just focusing on paying down cards and letting inq's fall off!


 

Ouch, I dislike Sallie Mae, the intrest rate was RIDICULOUS, I'd just say even with the tight budget try to pay on them while in school, it will save you a LOT over the life of the loan. 


He graduates in December and we plan on paying it back as soon as possible after that. It's only a few thousand so it shouldn't be too much of an issue, but it definitely wasn't our first choice. I think the interest is 8%.

Discover It $1k | Chase Freedom $1.2k | Barclay Apple $1.7k | Target $1k |TJX Rewards $1k | Walmart $900 | Macy's $800 | American Eagle $750 | VS $750 | LOFT $500 | Express $350 | Cap1 Sec. $200 |

AU: Amex BCP $5k | Barclaycard Arrival $3k | Amazon Visa $2k | Chase Freedom $2k | Discover It $1.5k
