No one wishes to go bankrupt, but it sometimes happens. When you understand that bankruptcy is not the end of your financial journey, you will have enough strength to start all over. It can be an opportunity to move forward and develop a better, personal financial plan.

Taking the right step is a good measure against any other round financial problem that may arise later. You will be adequately fortified against any form of financial embarrassment if you take the right step. Here are the steps to take to repair your credit card after bankruptcy. 

Repair your credit

Bankruptcy will create a lot of unwanted remarks on your credit. Situations like missed payment, overdrawn credit limit will show on your file. The fact is, some of these negative remarks should fall off once the financial distress is over. Updating your information may be delayed by the creditors, thereby impeding your efforts of rebuilding your credit card. Therefore, the first step to take after bankruptcy is to clean up your credit card.

Get a secured credit card 

Your target after completing a bankruptcy is to build better credit. It is crucial that you open a credit account that you can use to improve your score steadily. Most credit card providers approve secured credit cards readily.

Diversify with loans 

The right step to having a better credit is to go for a smaller loan that will be easy to pay back. In most cases, the loan is small, and you can use it for making essential purchases, repairing of homes, and investment. This move enables you to pay off your debt without any hassle and at the same time, build a better financial outlook. 

Irrespective of the type of loan you choose, try always to pay the bills early every month. After repaying what you owe, you can then consider taking another loan to enable you to keep diversifying and creating a good payment history in your credit file. 

Keep an eye on your credit to monitor your progress 

Monitoring your credit after bankruptcy is essential as it helps you to keep watch on your credit score. The credit monitoring service and ID theft prevention will help you in this regard. 

When you sign up for a credit monitoring service, you will be able to know your financial activities affect your credit score. You will also be able to make better decisions once your credit has improved enough to qualify you for an auto loan.

You’ve moved most of your holiday and birthday shopping online with great results, so why are you hesitant to embrace online grocery shopping?

While the "on-line" part might be new, the delivery part was a staple of family life in yesteryear. The milkman delivered bottles of liquid freshness to the doorstep daily, and the greengrocer hawked his vegetables at your back door. Even the baker delivered fresh bread to your table, and the butcher cut to order and delivered whatever was available.

Then came the “modern” era of supermarkets and big cart shopping. Gone were the days of opening your front door to find the crate of fruit or haggling over a cup of coffee with the produce farmer. The new way to buy food was to make one trip to a large grocery store, fill the cart from shelves stacked with multiple options, gather fruits and vegetables shipped from far lands whether in-season or not, then stand in line to pay for it, let the box-boy or bag-girl pack it up for you and deliver it to your car. Sometimes they even helped you put it in the trunk. Then, when you arrived home, you called to the kids and your spouse to help you bring in the groceries.

With a few adjustments, this is still the norm for most Americans. But it doesn't have to be. You could just have the best of both worlds: all the choices available from a large supermarket with the convenience of home delivery.

Online shopping

Grocery shopping via online portals typically falls into three categories: online only stores; supermarkets with online pickup or delivery services; shopping and delivery services.

  • Online only. As the name indicates, these stores do not exist as brick and mortar. Clients order and pay via a website and products arrive at their doorstep. At one time, online portals offered only dry goods since shipping in warm or cold seasons would not affect the product. Now, however, many online grocers offer packaged meals with fresh meat and produce packaged especially to arrive farm fresh and ready to cook.
  • Supermarkets. Not to be outdone by the convenience of online shopping, grocery stores and supermarket chains began offering online services for order with convenience pick up in designated store locations. Amazon’s purchase of Whole Foods chain spurred even more competition in the online ordering arena. Some stores also offer preferential parking for online order customers. Other stores now offer delivery for a fee, even same-day delivery, and a short delivery window, so you're not stuck at home waiting.
  • Services. To fill the gap, shopper and delivery services like Insta-Cart and Shipt will shop for you at stores that don't offer delivery. 

If you're pressed for time and are looking for a new way to add more time to your life, try out one of these services.
