I'm 32, no CC (currently in bk, hence the wish for earlier credit education).  My plan is to buy a home as soon as I can...2 or 3 years down the line.


You're in the right place for your rebuilding journey. In the last two years on here with the knowledge and help of the members, I have made tremendous progress.

Knowledge IS power.

 

I have the same sentiments as you 4us. 33, bk almost five years ago. Wish I had known half the things I know now back then. However I think I've done pretty well with my rebuilding and I'm proud of what I have been able to acheive through self discipline, determination and a lot of grace :smileyhappy:
