4 Easy Ways to Clean up Your Credit
- Created on 09 October 2014
Keeping a good credit score, not having debt, saving and investing are my top priorities. Luckily, I married a man with the exact same money values as me. It wasn’t always this way. In fact, a year after dating I found out he had a student loan in default, in addition to multiple past-due credit card payments. Yikes!
He wasn’t happy with his current situation (who would be, really?) and was more than willing to do what it took to get his finances in order. In just 3 years, his credit score went from the low-500s to mid-700s!! Cleaning up your credit is not only possible, but it’s actually easy. I’m sharing 4 tips with you on how to clean up your credit in just 3 years.

Can you believe ¾ of 2014 is already behind us? Where has the time gone? Thinking back, my year involved a number of major life changing events. We welcomed a new addition to the clan. More people required more space and a short sale warmed its way into our hearts. We journeyed to Hawaii and seriously considered relocating (well maybe not we). Not all events were joy-filled. The family business of 10 years – our Laundromat – came to an abrupt end which promises to present beneficial lessons one would rather avoid. More on that soon.
