Isanham, you can do it! Congrats on the bronze spade. It is indeed hard to stay app free, especially when seeing so many success stories others are having. Congrats on your progress so far! :smileyhappy:

Re: Garden Club Meeting - October 2012

Called up Wal-Mart today, expected to have the automated CLI denied, with plans to call underwriting directly afterwards.  Surprisingly, I got CLI'd from $700-900 by the automated system.  Its not much, but its a step in the right direction, so I'm content for now.  Will try again in 2-3 months, then call up underwriting then.

Re: Garden Club Meeting - October 2012

I've been officially gardening since Febuary. I have around 7 Inquiries on EX--Im from CA so this is all they pull out here pretty much. Besides my card in Feb, all my apps reached 1 yr old around June. Hoping to stay Garden-Strong until all these fall off next year. The one thing nice about gardening is watching my scores rise as everything ages, slow and steady like a true garden. :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Garden Club Meeting - October 2012

So I sat down at my PC this morning....updated my CC Excel file, then paid "this weeks" credit card bills.

 

I'm still in the garden...no apps, not really feeling the itch, but a bit frustrated with what feels like slow progress...

 

Hmph.

Re: Garden Club Meeting - October 2012

Nice! 

 

That's about the timeframe I'm looking at to go for a morgage, as well. 

 

Happy Gardening!
