The best time of year to begin cleaning up, is always now. Whether it’s your home, your credit, or your car, there are many ways to clean up as you delve into the beautiful fall weather New England has to offer.
Cleaning up your home can brighten your mood and help you prepare for winter. Raking up leaves is a great way to move your body, and clean up the yard. Remove debris from the gutters, seal up cracks and insulation to windows and doors. Consider donating items you no longer use to a local shelter, thrift store or school. Did you know local schools may accept clothing, easy to prepare meal items and school supplies?
Credit clean up can be an exciting way to jump into a new hobby and create peace of mind. Here are a few ways you can begin reviewing your credit for credit clean up:
- Connect with one of our Certified Credit Union Financial Counselors for free to review your credit with personalized, discreet service
- Receive a credit report for free at: www.annualcreditreport.com (one from each bureau annually) for details on what is being reported to the credit bureaus
- Dispute any errors, and consider making additional payments to the lowest credit card balance or loan, to pay it off faster.
Remember: You can do this! One step at a time is all that it takes.
Detailing your car with a thorough vacuum and washing, emptying it from all the receipts and little knickknacks collected since the last clean out, can really make a difference in how you feel.
