I made a mistake and canceled all my credit cards. How can my credit recover?
About 10 years ago we paid off $25,000 in credit card debt. Then, I canceled all the cards. I didn't know this would hurt my credit at the time. I am having a hard time getting our score up and keep reading that you should not cancel cards with zero balances.
How can I fix this?
