Yet another Crown Jewelers question

OK, I've bought the Fossil watch/paperweight and CJ now shows on my report as a $2500 CL and a $25 balance. My original intent was to purchase a home next year but now it looks like it will be more like another 2 years before I can do it. Do I have to keep buying jewelry every 6 months or can I just let it drop to a $1500 CL and maybe buy something a few months before applying for a mortgage? I'm not really a jewelry guy and I'm perfectly comfortable with my $25.00 Timex from Target (I upgraded from the Casio last year).

They will close your account after 6 months of inactivity. Best to buy something every 4-5 months.
 
Why not buy something and donate it?

Re: Yet another Crown Jewelers question

... just stock up on pendants for Christmas gifts and birthdays for your female family members.  Those are the only things I don't find completely ugly ... and they're only moderately overpriced, vs. the rest of the merchandise.
 
It's worth 35-40 bucks every few months to help my build myself up.
 
Ugh.
