Re: Garden Club Meeting - November 2012

Checking in for November. No apps since 9/17. Plan is to stay in the garden until February, 2013. I will probably cancel AMEX PRG then (AF too high for me, it's nto meeting my needs). May (possibly) app for AMEX SPG then. I keep getting BOA pre-approvals, last one was decent offer but I am holding out as I need to combine, prune some cards.

 

Happy Gardening to everyone.

Re: Garden Club Meeting - November 2012

Still have my gloves on and I am claiming my gold spade early!  November 15th will be six months since last app.  I have all the credit I need right now and am still working on my plan to be below 10% utility by my birthday in July!!  My Birthday Gift will hopefully be NFCU credit card and Barklays!!  I can't wait!!!

 

I love the food on the table and wanted to add about 3 pounds of this candy I had left over from Halloween!

 

Enjoy!!

Re: Garden Club Meeting - November 2012

Still here, waiting until tomorrow to see updated reports. Starting to feel a little itchy, only because my reports should now have my formerly defaulted student loans updated to gorgeous default-free tradelines. Last I checked, they weren't entirely finished. I want to see those new scores very much, as I'm hoping that I'll see some boost-y action from that.

I always look forward to the updates on these GC threads, too. Yay for the 1st of the month!
