4. Avoid Streets That Give You Temptation
If walking (or driving) down a street laden with amazing restaurants and bars will make you throw your at-home dinner plans out the window, make sure to drive two blocks out of your way to skip that area. If walking past store display windows on your way to the office tempts you to pop in after work and buy that one skirt on the mannequin, change your route and don't pass by them. If picking up that one item you need from Target makes you leave with a sofa and box of binders in your cart at the end of it, just order it online and halt the temptation. Basically, don't test yourself and you'll end up with savings at the end of the month.
