Here's a few tips on how you can start to clean up your bad credit today

    Why is it that credit, which is affecting people all across the world, one of the least talked about subjects inside our circles of discussion today? Most of us don't learn about the importance of maintaining a good credit score until our credit has been ruined. At this point, instead of coming up wit a plan to pay off our overdue bills, most of us just set our bad credit reports to the side. Hoping that one day we come across enough money to pay off everything at one time. Unfortunately for most that day may never come. Instead we can start to take action towards cleaning up our credit history today. With the right plan, some patience, and self-discipline you can turn your credit report into something you could be proud of.
  Here's a few ideas to help get you started. First you should order a free credit report. Your credit report will give you a list of everyone you've borrowed from and how much you currently owe them. With this info you can start to create a plan of action that will eventually lead to you having a good credit report. Ok now that you know exactly who you owe and how much you owe them. You can contact them to set up a monthly payment plan. Or you can ask if they'll be willing to accept a one time settlement payment, which is normally a lot less then the balance that's being reported. If netheir of these seem like they'll work for you, you could start saving a percentage of your income every month. Then at the end of every year take that savings and go pay something off. Until every delinquent account on your report is paid off.
   Of course the choice is yours. You are the only one that truly knows which plan will work best for you. Just don't allow bad credit to lenger in your life any longer without at least trying to repair it.
