Nothing wrong with payments if you have the money allocated.
I.E. I just got engaged, and did not buy the ring outright, but I have the money budgeted. I will have to pay more every month, but I feel more comfortable knowing my "emergency fund" has more cash. It's also a lot easier to feel comfortable spending money if you already have your "savings/retirement" set aside every month.

Money is a fickle mistress

I’m not too afraid of debt like you said as long as money is budgeted for it. Gotta have some kinda credit for the hard times and for houses and such. My credit is pretty good for my age. Was around 760 before the ford fiasco. Now around 720
