Ugh. I worked like mad to get my credit scores up to buy a house and was successful. Apped immediately and added $27K in new (first time prime) credit lines. Boy, has that laxative kicked in. I refuse to do what I did before and bury my head in the sand, but OUCH, looking at my recent credit purchases is painful. I keep telling myself it's all part of new homeownership and that when my deposits come back from the rental/utilities, that will help, but boy howdy, I need to get this under control. Amazon is killing me with how easy it is. I simply have to be more disciplined than I have been this month. I'm wishin' and hopin' for a 0% BT offer from NFCU for Christmas!
