Ok. Listen. Look at me. 40% is nothing. In the whole scheme of things you will be fine. It had to get over my own near manic utilization fears and realize that I am being responsible, paying off my CC debt "early & often" like never before. Creditors love to see you use their cards! The only time I worry about util is when I am going to app. Just let everything post and update. Its ALL GOOD!!!
I was recently approved for BCP, FNBO & Simplicity with util >50%. ( Iknow, I know - but that was down from 75% a few months prior.)
Although 40% is not ideal, it's really not that bad. Cheer up, LS!
