    Assuming you workout 4 or more times a week and take 3-5 grams a day on training days, no need to supplement with more creatine on off days.

    Your muscles will stay saturated with more than enough creatine on rest days.. no need to supplement.

    If you've got creatine mono, its pretty damn cheap. No reason not to. I take it on my two off days but if you happen to skip a day you're not going to notice any difference.

    Second,

    I take 5G of Creatine Monohydrate first thing in the morning everyday regardless if I am working out that day or not.

    Its not a big deal if you skip a rest day or 2, you should have enough for full saturation anyways.

    I personally skip a day here or there on my rest days just from forgetting.

    You can maintain your creatine saturation by using 5 grams on rest days. If you forget a day or so, it shouldn't make much of a difference as it takes about 1 month for saturated creatine levels to return to baseline.
