It will be five years since I filed BK in January and I've finally reached the point where I'm content with my credit picture.

 

I don't have the best cards or the best limits but I've come a long way from where I started. I imagine better cards with better limits sometime in the near future but I'm currently content to wait and let time do its thing.

 

I put a security freeze on all three accounts tonight. My plan is to remain app free in 2013 and shoot for a mortgage in 2014. I am so thankful for a lot of things. A great job, wonderful friends, an improved credit portfolio and my friends on MyFICO.

 

I hope we all find what we are looking for as 2013 draws near. Thank you friends!

BK in 2008, after making very stupid financial decisions.

Barclay's Apple Financing Card ($6400) --- Capital One Quicksilver ($13,000)---GEMB CareCredit ($5700) --- AUFCU ($10000)--- Walmart ($5000)
