Stepped out ever so briefly last month for a car upgrade! In the garden for the foreseeable future, probably until it's time to move into a new apartment!
Debts are going down as well, so happy I decided to control my spending and get that debt down! Freedom and Discover should be paid off by mid May, then it will be time to hammer at the big boys.

Well, I fnally took my chance this morning, was breathing pretty nervously and put in All my app info (I also have a student checking account and savings account with Chase if that helps any bit.) and then submit, 30 seconds later, I got an instant approval message! I'm so happy right now, I can't say. I thought I was getting denied again. I'm sure it will be a low limit, but that is fine with me. Now it's Amex next, and then back to the garden I go. I can't get a picture to post here, so if someone can help me that would be great. This is the only one I got....http://i494.photobucket.com/albums/rr308/redsoxfan_photos/ChaseApproval.jpg

I will have been in the garden for almost a year at the end of this month! (Unless you count that Verizon Inquiry to switch my cell phone provider).
Soon it will be time to see if that Capital One card fixed enough nitrogen for me for new seedings. (bad gardening joke)

I just pulled my scores for the month, and I'm happy to report that I received a 4 point bump on EQ! Over time, the new credit ding will fade more and more. Moving forward!!!

It has been 3 months since my last app! I'm planning on waiting until Jan 2014 for my next app, AmEx BCP. I've been pushing back the date for the AmEx constantly, but I just want to make sure my reports are the best they can be at the time of the app!

It's May and I am still in the garden!!!!! Day 116. I registered with myFICO Forum one year ago today and my scores were abysmal. Thanks for everyone's support and advice.

Still here. Decided to focus on paying down SL debt. According to myy current schedule, I'll have paid off 1 loan by December so that I can move the full payment to my biggest loan.

I have been gardening all through the winter. Couldn't stop myself from planting a couple of 'cardlings' last month. Back to Garden now.
