Allow Yourself Small Treats
You will be more prone to stray off your budget if you cut all frivolous spending. I'm not suggesting you go on a shopping spree, but allow yourself small treats throughout the month to keep the spending withdrawals at bay. Let yourself get a croissant while working at a cafe, buy the scarf that's 80% off, or take the Uber home at 2 AM instead of taking the bus.

The nice thing about these allowances is that you only splurge on things you really, really want. Instead of blowing money on whatever urge strikes.
