|FICO 8 SCORES: 06-04-2020||633 TU||656 EX||652 EQ|
dynamicvb, I just discovered self lender. I'll probably be doing that! Anything to help! Thanks for the suggestion.
I got a bit of bad news last night—my store card (that I've had for about 6 years) heard of my credit woes (I made the mistake of asking for a replacement card) and canceled my account! Oh no!
Oh well, it's not like I need to buy clothes right now.
So, until Green Dot sends me a card and I get that all set up, I have no open accounts.
StartingOver2018, oh yeah. LOL, I'm a credit leper now! Well, what is really helping is seeing everyone's sigs where they show their credit score 6 months or a year ago, and then now... wow that is so encouraging. Bless all of you for putting that in your sigs. It's all helping me be more patient.
Right now I'm learning so much from this forum and learning the lingo and "culture." By "culture" I mean, good practices and common sense! Like, I keep on reading people talking with pride about their low utilization. (I guess that's the term?) I really want that mindset to seep into my brain, so that I'm always strict with myself to keep low balances as a matter of pride. It's ALL about low utilization (and paying on time!).
You guys are all great!
