I should garden for awhile, right?

[ Edited ]

Hello, everyone.

So I've been using a lot of the advice and experiences that people have shared on these forums (big thank you to you all!) and wanted to just list the CCs I have recently attained over the past couple months. Also, if I should garden at this point. (Pretty sure I should, but felt it doesn't hurt to ask)

Bank of America (Secured) - $400 06/2013

Capital One Platinum MC - $300 06/2013

Barclays MC - $500 07/2013

Capital One QuicksilverOne MC (Got EO to push this through!) - 08/2013


Soft pulls on these two with shopping cart technique:
J.Crew - $250 08/2013

Ann Taylor - $500 08/2013


AU on a Capital One Visa Platinum - 10+ years account with $17K CLI and only about 8% utlization

I have a Toyota CO loan that I am paying off in two weeks (my next paycheck) and my last collection by the end of this month, beginning of September (if all goes well with negotiations with OC). Thank you for your advice, input, etc. Have a great day!



Starting Score: EX: 646, EQ: 624, TU: 639 (07/26/2013)
Current Score: EX: 694 (As of 12/17/2013), EQ: 644 (As of 12/21/2013), TU: 662 (As of 12/12/2013 - Barclays)
Goal Score: 700 in all three (07/26/2014)

Awww, thank you! :smileyvery-happy:

Yeah, I decided to get a decent amount of CCs if possible since I have not used CCs in nearly 5-6 years, if not more. I don't spend what I don't already plan to spend ahead of time, so I've done a good job of keep my overall utilization between 7%-10% maximum for the past 2 months. Thank you for your response and invitation, I see the green gardens and move toward them...

You have done well

Now its truly time to increase AAoA, age INQ's and increase score again that's basically what gardening is all about while seeking SP CLI's too.

All while working on your CR's so head on over to the garden thread tell them myjourney sent you and make some new friends.... ha ha ha ha 

 

P.S. there is a watering can, chair and some gloves at the gate for you:smileylol:
