I Love Credit Sesame

So I just logged in to CS to check my December update. (Yes I know it's FAKO) Due to a home remodeling project I am in the middle of my CC utilization is increasing at the moment. It is showing as 36% on the USAA Credit Monitoring. So my CS score is down (-24 points to 677). Anyway, on their positive points for my score they say:

- Your utilization is less than 50%:smileysurprised:

- It's not the worst credit score we've ever seen:smileyvery-happy:


I'm not sure how to feel about those comments as the positives. I think my self-esteem needs a boost tonight. Maybe I can convince the cat to show me some attention when I get home. Treats in the pocket usually do the trick!

Best financial advice I ever got: "Just imagine what an adult would do and do that."

Starting Score: 500's
Current Score: EQ 701 (FICO) TU 721 (FICO) EX 715 (Quizzle)
Goal Score: 760 ALL
