Losing power at idle doesn't necessarily mean you need new catalytic convertors. It's very rare to have to replace them unless you drive around with misfires. Is your Check Engine light on?

Converter as Tom said is not likely the problem. If no check engine light, I would have the throttle body cleaned. It may be an idle issue or something else. I am betting a check engine light is involved.

Yes my check engine light is on and that's what is showing when I had it tested but then a few days later it went off my car was driving fine then came back on and that's when it started having problems The 2 time my light came on I have not been driving my car at all unless I absolutely have to When I first start the car it's fine until the engine warms up then when I come to a stop is when it starts losing power and wants to die so I either put it in neutral give it gas or just my foot on the break and give it gas and that seems to keep it going I don't no much about cars and don't have a lot of Exter funds just moved to a new town and don't know hardly anyone or no of a good place to take it for good reliable and reasonable thanks everyone for your time and help Merry Christmas And God bless!!
