    They are really serious about the debt you carry. I had a crazy month where I had to spend 2K more than normal. I recently changed apartments so they did a credit check on me. I knew my credit score score from April. My score dropped 30 points due to the extra debit this month (keep in mind I pay my credit card in full every month). It is a crazy system.

    This is all I needed to read to know I was going to love this article:

    “Your credit score is like a pet monster under the bed.”

    GREAT analogy. Gotta love Get Rich Slowly.
