You are doing great. I would just work on getting that 30 day late removed and get your balance paid off. You should also be able to get a few store cards like Target or Walmart.

It can be very confusing. Inquires in the last six months hold the most weight. That does not mean older ones irrelavent unless they are 12+ months old.

Believe it or not I've read 6 months as well some places. This whole credit thing is sooo confusing. I just want to clean up my credit. Not really interested in anymore CC, loans or even a new car. I have a house and the car (2004) I drive is paid off. Both notes are/were under my husbands name but my name is on the deed and title of both.
