10 Jul Credit After Bankruptcy – Why?
Yesterday I posted about how to get credit after bankruptcy. But why do it?
Let’s pause here and maybe take a breath. Many clients are afraid of bankruptcy because they want credit for the future. Well, there’s credit and then there’s credit.
A mortgage or a car purchase is one thing, and having one credit card for a highway breakdown or vacation car rental is also just fine. Beyond that, you might want to take a hard look at what you are doing. Credit cards may have become a great convenience, but they sure can be dangerous. Living within means is kind of fun, even if not convenient. It’s a great feeling to have a savings every month.
