Once you pay off your credit cards CLOSE THEM (and don't get new ones), stop using credit cards all together (regardless of if you pay them off monthly or not) and stop living by your credit score...it is NOT the end all and be all of the universe.

Not exactly advice but a saying or Motto "You can have ANYTHING you want but you cannot have EVERYTHING you want."

Seriously it makes me feel good that someone like Donald Trump as rich as he is only has the time money and resources for anything he wants but not everything he wants.

Use cash!

Its harder to let those bills go through your fingers than it is to slide a card through a machine. Also your never overdrawn.
