Paying Off Credit Card

After reading a lot about finances lately, particularly in some blogs and on the fatwallet forums, I decided that I needed to pay off my credit card. I had paid it off last year (a check for over $4k) and promptly charged it back up. So, I pulled $3.7k out of my ING account and cut a check to my credit card company to get it back to $0. All charges on the card now will be paid off promptly.

I’ve also decided to start using some of my older cards that I haven’t used in years. I don’t want the accounts to get closed. So I’ve decided to put small daily charges on each of them every couple of months so they stay open and active.
