    get rid of the debt

    I have to pay off $5,000 to Mr. "B' by next month. I don't know how to get rid of it.

    Can I use the phrase "get rid of something" in this context to mean "I don't know any way which can help me to stop paying the debt"

    Re: get rid of the debt

    I wouldn't use it. How about 'get out of it'?
