I know that feeling of being scared to open the letters on the doormat and living in fear. I also know what it feels like to go shopping with the pennies from the boys money boxes.
In fact some months after my health scare the only ways we all got fed was my be going to the bank on MadDads payday and drawing out the cash for a months food. Since then I vowed to work on reducing our debt and I use the envelope method of paying for things.
There were some ace posts about managing your money on last weeks #FabulouslyFrugal link up that I really wanted to share with you all.

Each week we make sure we pin the post, feature some on our facebook pages and then we each have a round up on a Sunday. Let's all share that being frugal can be fabulous.
