Suggestions on building up from here

So, I'm currently 19 and have been working at building my credit since the week after I turned 18. My oldest line of credit is about one year and seven months old.

 

 I'd like to ask some of you what you think the next steps will be in improving my credit score (669 at the moment). I'll list my credit lines below, when they were opened, and how the credit line has progressed on them. My utilization on my cards is about 4%.

Re: Suggestions on building up from here

With that line up I am wondering why you are posting in the rebuilding forum lol. My only advice is seeing as you have obtained 5-6 cards in the last couple of months is to garden and let them grow. Keep your util low and your scores will grow over time.
