 You have to leave a balance to build good credit. Maybe you could leave a little tiny balance.

 We don't use credit cards.  I have zero faith in my or my husband's ability to use the responsibly.  I'd prefer to only be able to spend the money we already have

I buy everything on credit card - and then pay it all off, in full, every month.
