Good habits and a credit score

Feb 1, 2012
We use a credit card to pay for all monthly expenses and then pay it off at the end of each month. My credit score fluctuates every quarter, depending on when the accounts are checked. My question is how can we convince the credit rating company that we do not carry any credit card debt from one month to the next? My score is currently at 749 but has been as high as 815. Thanks, I really enjoy your program. Randy, Macomb, IL

The time to purge receipts

Jan 27, 2012
I have recently started purging old files of financial information (statements, bills, receipts, etc.).

Thanks for your insight. Alicia, Indianapolis, IN
