So in this post I am going to talk about all the credit cards that my wife and I have. It is a crazy amount by most normal people’s standards. This I know. It was even featured when I was on the CBS Sunday Morning show talking about rewards cards
So I will repeat my common mantra – DO NOT SIGN UP FOR A CREDIT CARD JUST BECAUSE SOME GUY ON THE INTERNET SAID THAT YOU SHOULD! YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE QUITE AS CRAZY AS I AM TO STILL RESPONSIBLY USE CREDIT CARD REWARDS TO TAKE YOUR FAMILY ON VACATION

I used to have a giant spreadsheet where I’d list all of our cards and another tab where I would put down spending and reconcile it to different accounts.
