Re: Garden Club Meeting - May 2013

Wow. I can't believe this post has already 10 pages. I think May will be a good month for us all!

My plan this month is to continue to use my credit cards wisely and work on paying down my debt. Its a slow pace, every time I feel I've made a dent in my debt something else comes up and I'm right back where I started but that's ok, I'll get there eventually. Slow and steady wins the race, yes? :smileyhappy:


Starting Score: MyFico EQ 694 (3/2013)
Current Score: MyFico EQ 707 (4/1/2013), EX 734 (4/12/2013 - AMEX pull)
Goal Score: 740+, gardening since: 5/17/13

Thanks for the drinks! It's easy to be tempted but looks like you calmed that itchy finger! Lol

oh it was tempting only because they were offering 30.00 immediate credit if I opened the account... making my total purchase 2.85.  tempting ... but nahhhh.,,.

 

@roar -- are you in CO also?  watching all the lovely May snow falling outside my office window....

I'm new to all of this; including the Garden.  My plan is to get pre-approved for a home loan so I'm in the garden and looking for info on everything regarding increasing my scores, saving money, and mortgages.

Sounds like a plan! No it won't interfere with monitoring services.

myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
