Just dropping in to share some exciting news…I’ve met one of my small financial goals on my road to getting back on my feet. I now have $1,000 socked away in an emergency fund. Woohoo!
With that goal met, my next goal is to clear up my credit a bit. When I originally met with the mortgage company a few years ago regarding financing our build, they referred me to someone who came highly recommended. At the time, I was able to qualify for the amount needed without it, my credit actually wasn’t too bad. (Not good, but not too bad.) But now…yea, it’s in the pits.
Since I am able to pay my bills on time again and have relatively steady although fluctuating income, I decided it was time to get that going. So I met with the company this past weekend, put down the non-refundable $400 deposit and now just have to wait. Their work typically takes 2 months but can take up to 4 months. So we will see.
Last small update…I am just a little over a month from having my ex-husband’s car paid off. Sticking to him paying these last 2 payments. I am looking forward to transferring the title and being rid of this last legal financial tie (excluding our kids but that is not at all the same thing.)
I haven’t forgotten about getting a real numbers update to you. I will, I promise. Thanks for your patience with me.
But I do have a question for you…have you ever used a credit repair service? Experience?
