Your credit score can cost or save you a lot of money, depending on what the score is.
If you'd like to get a handle on your credit you may want to attend a free workshop in Redmond on Wednesday.
Workshop spokesperson Yolanda Vanderpool says it's very important to be able to read your credit report, understand your score and get some advice on improving the number.
bite "It's very important- especially for someone who is wanting to go into the home buying process - and that's exactly what this workshop is about - first off- we teach them how to identify issues in it - how can they fix it - we actually have them bring their credit report."
She says people will be asked to bring their credit report to the workshop and then get specific help with the report. She says for people who don't know how to get their report, they will be assisted during the class.
Neighbor Impact is hosting the free workshop, called "Understanding and Managing Credit." Its in Redmond on First street, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m Wednesday.
Vanderpool was a guest on 1110 KBND's Your Town Monday morning. You can hear her entire interview on this website under podcast, starting Tuesday afternoon.
