Re: Take the FICO Fitness Challenge for 2012!

Starting this off a little late in the game.  I'm hoping to have a better 2013 financial year!.  I'm just tired and embarrassed of my credit going up and down.  I'm ready to grab the bull by the horns so to speak and get my finances in order.  I recently had twins and this living pay check to pay check is getting quite old. Along with these mediocre credit limits.  I'm hoping by 2013 to put these cards past me and be in a better position. 

Best Buy 300 CL

Capital One Secure 300 CL

First Premier Visa 400 CL

Macy's Reward 400 CL

Orchard Bank 450 CL

Credit Union CC 500 CL

Household Bank 500 CL

First Premier Master 550 CL

Capital One Rewards 750CL

Wells Fargo Financial 2000 CL

 



Starting Score: 541
Current Score: EQ703 TU752 EX 691
Goal Score: Achieved 700 next all 3 scores at 750

Determined to stay the course. I am totally dedicated to repairing my credit and increasing my credit score. I am doing it ONE DAY AT A TIME.  Patience, patience and some more patience, plenty of prayers and discipline/sacrifice, that's my daily antidote to resolve this issue.

Fired up!!!

Testing my signature out! 

 

I'm too late for the 2012 challenge but I am in it to win it for the 2013 challenge!  

I'm whipping my credit score into shape once and for all! And I'm doing a Debt Snowball (see Dave Ramsey's teachings on Google). I'm cheering for all of you -- you've been my inspiration over the past month. I've been gathering information and doing on the research that I can do in order to move forward successfully. 

 

Hoping for a 680 by the end of 2013 challenge, but I really want a 750 across the board!! :smileyhappy:
