Credit card companies are closing accounts and cutting limits - you can try to avoid this by using any credit cards that you've left inactive and if they DO decrease your limit, get on the phone with them immediately. Most of the time they will reverse or partially raise your limits again. What you want to understand is that the available credit is the 2nd most important when it comes to your credit score. This means that if the creditor lowers your limit from $2000 to $1000 and you have a balance of $500, your utilization goes from 25% to 50% immediately and your score will reflect this as well.
