3. Try To Pay With Your Debit Card Or With Cash
I personally hate paying with cash because I feel like I end up with 50 dollars in change at the end of the month that I'll never cash back into the bank. If that's one of your hangups too, then try paying with your debit card for everything rather than your credit. If you see your balance draining closer and closer to that zero mark, you'll halt your spending for the month. 

But with a credit card you feel like you have an endless supply of funds for the next four weeks, and it's easy to overspend. Use your debit card to make you more aware how much cash you're burning through.
