Can't wait to see what happens!!!!

I just inherited $4000 so I took all that $ to pay down the balances on my revolving accounts!!!!  That brings me down to 10% util!!!!!  I'm sooooo excited to see what happens to my scores!!!  According to the simulator it should bring me up at least 30-40 points on my TU.  My EQ  is about the same...I also have a DV out to AFNI which I'm waiting on----I'm 99% certain that collection doesn't belong to me.

Re: Can't wait to see what happens!!!!

Congrats!!!!!  Especially on your obvious control....that would be hard not to spend some!

 

But that's the mindset you get after you've been here for a while.  Paying down becomes so much more important than it used to be!!!

Re: Can't wait to see what happens!!!!

My Util before was 45% so getting down to 10% is amazing for me! 

 

Bungalow...tell me about it!!!  It was REALLY hard to not spend the $!!!  Since seeing the improvements over the past year it would be a shame to backtrack!
