Hello,
 
Get a copy of your credit report and do the math.  See what you can pay down to lower your percentage.  Maybe a little payment on everything might do the trick. MG

Ok ya'll that was kinda obvious.  But how would one know where to start and figure out what would really make a difference?

I am not sure there is much sublety that can be applied to DTI.  Either I has to go up or D has to go down.  If it is for a mortgage, I assume they prefer D to be installment not CC, and preferably established installment not new installment

And I've found the trick is not to stop the sliding
But to find a graceful way of staying slid
