What options are there to get out of debt?

It's true that there are a number of ways you can tackle your debt. If you have multiple debts across a few credit cards, you can always consolidate them with a consolidation loan or a balance transfer to a lower rate credit card. If you want to get the creditors off your back without filing for bankruptcy, you can negotiate with your creditors or even hire the services of a credit counselor or debt settlement firm who will negotiate with your creditors and help you establish a payment plan.
