    Ruining credit is quick & easy. Building it takes years.

    If you still have a credit card, pay it in full on time for the next 2-3 year and your credit will improve.

    If you lost your card, get a secured card.

    Nobody is financing you a new car because you could not handle a low balance credit card.

    As long as you don't miss a payment, and always pay the minimum amount or more, your credit should hold steady, and even increase year by year, especially if you keep making payments whenever you can, and not wait for the bill to come in the mail.

    Don't plan on more than 5 points or so each month.

    My best advice is to not buy things if you can't afford to pay for them.  Pay your credit card off in full every single month.
