Re: Total Credit 2012

I've been in rebuilding mode for the last year and a half, and now that I've finally crawled my way out of most of my historical baddies my focus is on maintaining a good current credit history. So not a lot of huge changes this year, but I'm in gardening mode with a few baddies looking to fall off and a few CLI's in my future so we'll see how 2013 does for me. Smiley Happy

 

2011:

Cap 1: $300

Credit One: $300

HSBC: $300

Total: $900

 

2012:

Cap 1: $300

Credit One: $400

HSBC (now Capital One): $300

Cap 1 (new): $500

Total: $1,500

 

Total increase: $600

 

I also have a new auto-loan for $15,000, completely under my name with no cosigners. May not seem like a big deal, but given that my credit score was once in the 400's it made me pretty excited to have a degree of financial independence. My score still isn't great, but at least it isn't terrifying! Smiley Happy 

 



Starting Score: TU - 580 (7/22/11) ..... EQ: 561 (7/22/11)
Current Score: TU - 622 (10/24/13) ...... EQ: 656 (3/26/14) ...... EXP: 620 (3/26/14)
