JaredsMomma,

Snowballing would work wonders in your case.
Start by paying the minimum on all debt. Any extra pay towards the $300 CapOne card. Once that is paid take it's minimum and send it along with the minimum to the $500 JCPenneys plus the extra funds for the month. Once that is paid off move to the next card, Target, then Texaco. Then $900 CapOne.
Remember: always pay the minimum to all debts! Put all the "extra" toward the smallest card. You will eliminate the # of payments you have to make, but don't lower the amount.

Good Luck.
