Secondly, are any of you still using credit cards? Do you have, for example, one card you still use each month, but pay that card off in full while working on the other cards? Why or why not?

If my house is a mess, I'm not getting much of anything done, including working my business. I have much better mental clarity when my house is in order, including my closets. When I'm working my business, I'm making money. So that would tie the clean closets to the money...if you want to go that far.
Does that make sense?
