1 yr Post BK

Filed Chapter 7, October 8th last year. Best decision I've ever made.

Currently have:
Secured Credit Card $200 (couldn't get approved for an unsecured right out of BK)
Credit One $700
Merrick $700 (guaranteed double to $1400 at the 7 month mark)

Keep receiving preapprovals from Barclay, but haven't decided if I'm going app.
Still blacklisted from Capitol One (and I only burned them for $300).

Got a $20,000 new car loan in September with Wells Fargo, with a interest rate of 6.9% (plan to refinance for a lower rate at 6 months).

Only debt I have is the car and $60,000 in student loans. Don't carry a balance on credit cards.

My current plan is to garden for a while, and pay off the student loans and car at a furious pace. My goal is to be debt free in the next 3 years and hopefully buy a house in the next 2-3 years.

My original scores are in my signature. My current scores are:
Equifax 674
Experian 667
TransUnion 642
