My credit score went up by 7 points this month. Must be the not buying new stuff! It is definitely easier to catch up without shopping for stuff. Or maybe it is the two teeny prepayments I've made on my mortgage totally about $268. Either way, I'm taking as a sign that I'm moving in the right direction.
I've spent some time tonight continuing to clear my clutter. I went through about 6 separate containers of pens and markers, and other stationary and miscellaneous things, plus some stuff from Christmas. I ended up coming up with a pile of pens I can take into work, some things to donate, and finding a perfectly-timed Toblerone for a midnight snack, which was very reinforcing. I'm eager to declutter more now.
Tomorrow I'm meeting up with one of my good pals who I have a longstanding history of talking about goals with. It's reliably inspiring and validating. I'll let you know more about it next time. :)
