It is very important to keep a check on the credit card balances. You must know the
ratio between your revolving credit and the amount you are spending. This will help
you in maintaining a good ratio, which will be easier to meet by the end of every
month. It is unwise to keep small balances with the expectation that you will get rid
of them soon. Piling them up will lead to a poor balance of the ratio and a worse
credit history. The best strategy is to free yourself from several cards by paying all
the balances and keeping just one or two for your expenditures.

for a copy every now and then and have a look at your credit history. This will help you

work on it do not have any personal grudges toward you; it’s just that humans are prone
to making errors. A small mistake by somebody can hinder your journey towards
achieving a dream. Check if there are any incorrect late payments or inaccurate owed
amounts listed for all your accounts. You need to ask them to correct all the mistakes

Make sure to pay all your bills and make your credit payments right on time. Late
payments give a very bad reputation to your credit history. The best solution to meet all
the deadlines is to set reminders for them. You can do this through emails or text
messages. Read this article for more practical tips on improving your credit score.

will be enough to bring some improvement it.
5. Under-use Your Cards
Go more on cash and use less of the credit card. Otherwise, you’ll portray an image of
yourself being a spendthrift. If you are not in the habit of carrying cash around, it’s never
too late to adopt new ones.

devising a neat strategy to get your hands on the loan that you really want for your
