Best way to pay off debt and not destroy my credit score?
So i'm about to have the ability to pay on my $14k of debt in 18 months. What would be the best way to go about this? Once paid off, i'd like to stick to buying a pack of bubble gum and paying it off every month.

Is this the wisest way to go about it without hurting my Credit Score?

Why would paying off your debt be destroying your credit? At worst if the debt is auto/mortgage loans, paying them off tend to lower your scores but it's going to recover in few months, certainly not destroying it. It's unlike other way around, let them defaulti would destroyed your credit... if you are that concerned, maybe bit more detailes would be helpful to better answering you.
