WIP - Credit Card Wallpaper idea

Once I get all my new cards and the various statement dates, etc...Im thinking of taking a photo of each card and making a wallpaper that has them (with numbers redacted).  Once each card I would have the due date and the statement cut date.  I will also have a ledger to tell me which month to let which card report a balance.  Here is my example.  What yall think?

That's a good visual, just be sure not to post it on these forums, redact or no redact. There's a rule in place to protect posters that don't allow personal CC pics.

Ok.  I guess some people have forgotten to edit out names/numbers before in past and yall dont want the liability associated with it.

Re: WIP - Credit Card Wallpaper idea

There are two reasons why posting of CC pics aren't allowed: 1) many use it as a form of bragging or boasting (as if having 7 Palladiums isn't enough) and 2) despite editing, there are ways to pull of redacted info. I personally was able to pull off the name, CC #, expiration date, and company name of some personal and business cards posted on these very forums. I removed the pic as a mod, the OP got upset, then I read off the info via PM. He disappeared along with the pics on a picture hosting site. For that reason alone, we remove the pics to protect your and others' info.
