Thanks! Your feedback and comments, as always, are helpful and appreciated! It’s definitely been a long time coming. I’ve learned so much through the last several years of rebuilding and I owe a lot of that to being a member of this forum. Hearing other’s experiences that were in my same position and learning from those that were doing better helped me to further understand:
1. What I was doing wright;
2. What I was doing wrong; and
3. What I needed to change or continue to do to get that high credit level that I wanted to be at.

I also credit banking with my local Credit Union as being an essential step to my credit success and getting me to the point of approvals at major banks.

WOW! You really have clawed your way back to the new normal ... Capital One has changed into a first class card issuer and has great products. On top of that, they actually give decent credit limit increases. You have done very well and ... it is appreciated that you share your successes so that others can learn and see there is light at the end of the tunnel! Congrats on all your hard work! http://152b5.http.cdn.softlayer.net/80152B5/www.financeglobe.com/media/kunena/emoticons/cool.png

BloodFood created a new topic ' Top 5 most promising Marijuana Stocks in 2015.' in the forum. 10 hours 25 minutes ago

The investment scenario have certainly changed, With introduction to Marijuana Stocks investors have a whole new channel to invest in. While investing in Marijuana stocks in 2015 is may be novel, stocks of many medical marijuana stocks has gone up in smoke.Over the last two years S&P500 have gone up by 45%, most of the marijuana stock charts looked like someone jumped from dive board or a flat line and only a few were really promising but none of them are really Marijuana stocks. On top of that most Marijuana stocks slipped into penny stock category and traded on OTCBB and because there are many such stocks they are not listed in NASDAQ,NYSE or TSX. If you are interested in trading marijuana stocks then you need to use your due diligence. Here are top 5 Marijuana stocks list to watch and consider as a good option........ http://www.profitconfidential.com/stock-market/top-5-marijuana-stocks-to-watch-in-2015/

SAR1954 replied to the topic 'Equifax Score Increase' in the forum. 12 hours 3 minutes ago

As of July 3 my Equifax score jumped about 50 points to 720. My Ch. 13 fell off after the long awaited 7 years. I was able to walk into US Bank and get a low interest rate loan of 10% to consolidate some higher interest debt and to also get away from having multiple accounts with monthly payments. It felt good to walk in get what I needed with minimal questions asked and close within 24hrs. This hasn’t updated on my Experian or TU as of yet but I am sure when it does it will be just as nice. NO credit cards with balances. YIPPEE! :silly:

This is of course just my personal opinion, but frugality has aways been a ticket to mediocrity in my opinion. One thing is to never go overboard with what you spend and what you earn, but constalty lookig at what you spend and always trying to save every cent possible is not the best approach. I say try to live just a bit ver your means and this will force you to look for ways to earn more money.

That is truly the way to success.

I must say you have conveyed alot in very few words.
