What have I done. Garden time now.

Since buying our house and cars earlier this year I haven't apped for anything. Haven't even checked my scores since May. Got an auto increase from Barclay's,Lowes, and Walmart this month. Apped for freedom and received on recon for 1k.  Went out with the family to school shop (cash) and the app for our card and get this % off bug completely sucked me in. Old Navy, JCP hard pulls,    some wierd auto approve with Buckle. They swiped me and asked if I wanted card. OMG what have I done. I am freezing my reports, and never school shopping again.

No biggie.  Sit back, relax, and just let it all grow.

 

Buyers remorse does such, though.
