1. Attempt to do all (necessary) shopping one or two days a week (Tuesdays and/or Fridays because thats when we get paid.) instead of "going out because I need something" almost everyday.
2. Limit eating out to $25 a week (which is about 1 meal out a week and a lot better than we've been doing!)
3. Put at least $100 into savings by Jan 1.
4. Have at least 18 no spend days this month.
