Give yourself credit where credit is due! I have decided that giving myself rewards for "small" successes is important! I may not have a lot of money, but if it means spending a little more money to treat myself to new workout gear, gadgets, supplements, or DVDs I am worth it! I can cut out a coffee here or there if my reward is something wonderful! (especially if it will get me even closer to my goals, because we deserve it! HECK WE EARNED IT!!!)

After U pay off UR credit card debt, 1 of the things the Big Three Credit Bureaus won't tell U is that if U close all of UR cards, it actually hurts UR credit score. The reason 4 that is their computers show U with no open credit, therefore U must not be credit worthy. Another thing they won't tell
U is that if U don't use UR cards U won't get those 'Paid as Agreed' reports. U'll get a 'No Credit Used' report. On a monthly basis, U should use both credit cards 4 something U pay every month, a gas or phone bill, then @ the end of the month pay off all but $5 2 get a 'Paid as Agreed' report.
