Thanks to everyone here who gave me advice.

In the spring time I was working on building up my credit to get the best possible interest rate on a new home My wife and I are going to buy. On April 15th my TransUnion score was 672 my TransUnion score has increased to 692 as of 9/25!!! I achieved this only by reducing my credit balances to below 10%. I still have alot more work to do as I would like to be over 700 at the time I start the mortgage on my home. Thanks for the tips everyone. 

Starting Score: 673
Current Score: , FICO TU 692 9/2011
Goal Score: 750
