I am still learning when it comes to credit and want to know how is the best way to show you are using your card so it doesnt get cancelled? would the best way be to put a small balance on all the cards and then pay off right a way? or put a small balance on all cards and let them show a balance on my statement and THEN pay? I have only had my credit cards for about 4 months so im sure im still far away from having any cancelled.. thanks

I like to keep utilization under control so I don't set up recurring charges. Instead, I simply casually pull a card out of the sock drawer to make a purchase on it once in a while. I only have 10 cards though.
