So many of us in this economic upheaval are working on ways to fix your credit. I know that it has been a battle for me with having had previous divorces and loss of income when I became disabled. And now my College Girl is having to suffer from my bad credit. Poor dear.
How many of us come out of 4 to 6 years in higher education and have good credit. Not too many. So this is something that she will be contending with herself in just a few years. How to keep loans paid off and up to date while making it on her own. I know that there are many companies and organizations out there to help us repair our finances. Places like Consumer Credit Counseling, Ovation Credit, Debt Relief and of course the dreaded lawyers too.
Sometimes I am not sure how we manage to get through the muck and mire of all the new things we have to learn to take care of our finances.
What has worked for you? Do you have loans, credit cards and debt you have had to have help with? Or are you a cash and carry kind of girl. I know that is what I have become. If I do not have the money in our account then we just do not purchase something.
