Also take half of any tax return amount and put to credit card debt. Paying off highest interest ones first (the other half goes to saving for emergencies).

Having a plan is the first step. It depends on whether the plan works, and that will require time.

What is the interest rate on the Discover Card? Since it has a much smaller balance than the other accounts, it is a candidate for being paid off first.
