It's probably safe to say that it isn't having a new apartment that's hard, it's getting it. First, there's the legwork, then there's the scraping together a security deposit and first and last months' rent. But for some people, it's that pesky credit score that stands between them and the garden apartment with tons of light and the in-house washer and dryer.

So how can you start fixing your credit score before you find yourself crying as someone else closes on the affordable two-bedroom of your dreams?
