Credit utilization is the percentage of total available credit that you are using. Know your credit limit and make sure you don’t fully consume it. Credit utilization impacts your credit score, so keeping your credit utilization ratio at ideally 30 percent or lower will help you build good credit. Also, if you keep your credit utilization low, it will be easier for you to pay off your debt every month.
