For the most part, Eric is right. FOR THE MOST PART. A year ago I was making $7 an hour and was horribly in debt from lack of self control with credit cards and I couldn't fix it. Now I'm making 65K a year, and I actually have the money to pay all of this off, unfortunately the damage has been done. I'm not seeking more credit by any means, but I really want to do damage control. Anything I really want I buy with cash (geez, think I learned a lesson?), but I do really want to try to at least do my best to attempt to repair my mistakes. I'm not simply looking to "throw money" at the problem, I want to know the "right" way to handle this, if such a way exists. Which is what lead me to post here thinking I would get decent advice rather than getting flamed. Once again, lesson learned.


I'll have my lilcpop well done with a order of fries on the side.
