  9. It’ll help if you keep a list or write down the stuff you have used your credit for. Credit unions can often offer better rates and more alternatives than larger banks, because they base their decisions on the local economy instead of the national situation. Before you start shopping around, you should check all three of your credit scores from Transunion, Experian, and Equifax.

    First off I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question
    in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.

    I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting
    my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Kudos!
