should I get 1 or 2 secured credit cards
If I get 1 with a $200 limit, and put $100 on it, I am using 50% of my credit. If I get 2 $100 cards and put $50 on both of them, that is 25%. Would this be a big help on re building my credit

Get one secured card with a $300 line, and never leave more than a $50 balance at a billing cycle. Within 3-5 months, you'll more than likely see a jump in your credit.
