Prior to today we were $40,000.00 credit rich. That means that if we had wanted to we could have purchased $40,000.00 worth of junk on various credit cards and at select department stores. I am happy to say that we are now $40,000.00 credit poorer. The plastic shackles and their finance charges will one day be unable to rule our wallets.
And this should improve the credit score so that when we get serious about house hunting the score will be nice and high. At least that is the plan man.
