How to keep bankruptcy from ruining your credit score

You have probably heard that filing for bankruptcy ruins your credit score. However, the truth is that bankruptcy can actually improve your credit score if you take the right steps once the process is complete.

Setting off on the right track after your bankruptcy

Filing for bankruptcy can cause a person's credit score to take a hit, but those negative effects aren't permanent. As we have been discussing this week in previous posts, it is possible to start rebuilding your credit right after your bankruptcy discharge takes place.

As we began discussing in the last post, bankruptcy can do a lot of damage to a person's credit score and stays on their credit report for up to 10 years. However, the good news is that individuals in Wisconsin and elsewhere can start rebuilding their credit soon after receiving their bankruptcy discharge.

Thrifty Thanksgiving Meal

Thanksgiving has the potential to be a very expensive holiday.  You can save on your Thanksgiving feast and still have it tasty and memorable.  One of the easiest ways to to make the meal more exonomical is to start preparing in advance.  Buy your turkey now to avoid the mark-up that happens closer to the holiday.  If you plan your meal in advance you will have the opportunity to buy the items that you need as you see them on sale.  Think how much better it will be splitting the cost of your meal between four or five cheaper purchases instead of one giant bank-breaker two days beforehand.   Another good idea is making the meal into a pot-luck style where you provide the main courses and your guests supply the side dishes and desserts.
