Make sure to make your payments to the bankruptcy trustee on time every month, so they can pay your creditors.  If you have any creditors that were not included in the bankruptcy, then make sure you are paying them on time every month.  If you can get new credit (i.e. secured credit card, a credit builder loan) from your bank or credit union, do so and start building up some good credit history.  Filing bankruptcy kills your credit for years, so there is no quick or easy fix.  It will take time and lots of good credit history to undo the damage.  Best of luck!
