Re: December 2021 Check In Thread

There’s a thread somewhere. I forget the name. I can find it when I’m back in front of my laptop tomorrow, if you haven’t found it already. You can also right click on one of the boxes and check out the properties… inspect, I think it is.

Re: December 2021 Check In Thread

Hey @Ragnar, I was in an all day meeting followed by our holiday party (just getting home) and didn’t get a chance to check in here today. I see you found most of the info you needed. Traveling tomorrow and Sunday so I likely won’t be able to check in on it this weekend.

Re: December 2021 Check In Thread

2021 Has been a year of tremendous growth. I became a member of the 800 club for the first time. I am on a path that will lead to true financial freedom one step at a time. Goals for 2022: Continue building my business and non profit charity endeavors and increase my personal credit by another 100K. Also, begin building business credit to 25-50K. This forum is a key catalyst in helping me on my journey. Remember, its a marathon..not a sprint.

Re: December 2021 Check In Thread

Happy Holidays!

I am happy to say I more tha met my 2021 goals. I have a student loan that I paid down to a $100 balance. This is my only non-mortgage installment account so I want to see what points I gain for the balance being below 9% then I will pay the balance off I know I may lose points for no installment loans..sigh.

 

2022 is my year to become debt free, I have one credit card with a significant balance and I have a plan to pay it in full by December 2022.

IMHO, financial freedom is more important than a high FICO score. You can always manipulate your score by allowing a few bucks to report on one of your accounts after you are debt free. I wish you well in your endeavor to be debt free.

Re: December 2021 Check In Thread

Last day of 2021, I have started the main part of my credit journey this year by opening 6 new accounts that I plan to let age into 2022. The next goal card for me is a nfcu more rewards or just a rewards whichever is better. I slipped on my scores these last few months by letting my utilization hit a high of 23% which brought be down 15 or so points. 2022 I hope to hit 750-760 and then slowly climb into the 800 club.

Re: December 2021 Check In Thread

Yes, 2021 was an exciting year all around.

In 2022, I'll lose some inqs: EX will be go from 9 to 3, EQ will go from 2 to 0 (Jan) and TU will go from 7 to 2. Of course, I'm going to apply for a few cards in 2022, so that will all change.

I'm doing a mini AZEO experiment to see how my profile responds. It's not a hardship to do it, as I typically PIF all CCs, except my driver card. I pay the statement balance and let it "do what it do" for reporting. However, I opened a couple of new cards recently and had a bunch reporting at the same time. I'll report my findings towards the end of January.

Au revoir 2021!
