I don't know what to tell you. Just keep aware of your expiring funds and stay ahead of the game on that. I only accrue about half of what you have in a year, so I do the following:
I get Smithsonian for myself when it's available. Then border's rewards for that once a year redemption. Also, I will spend the $ on the Skymiles & HHonors points. Since I travel so infrequently now, it's a way to keep activity on those two accounts and I'm not having to outlay any true cash out of pocket. If it's a good year, I'll do WSJ when I can.
