Lets just say we were doing well not using our CC's....until this month. This week we went a bit CC crazy. CC's are getting frozen tonight, but I think we set ourselves back 2 or 3 months. And it looks like Chris is going on a different TDY and not the uber money making one.

....no.... We have a bad habit of eating out. It's our major weakness. MAJOR weakness.

Me too. I feel like I'm supposed to go every weekend. We've been trying to get it down to once a month.

we've been trying to stick to 30$ every two weeks... but it doesn't work out that way. At least not this month.

Eating out...I really don't enjoy it as much as I used to since I can't help thinking about the cost practically the whole time!

Cash only for eating out!!!

I want to eat out everytime I feel to lazy to cook. The trick is I don't have a credit card to put it on anymore ... so if I can't convince myself to use the cash (which I usually can't) then I'm out of luck. Cash is totally the way to go.

We DO pull cash... but then we used our CC's when the cash was gone. *Sigh* we are working on it, and we are getting better.

Ah yes, but my credit cards don't work anymore. There is no back up. That's what it took for me to get my butt in gear. Otherwise, I was always putting stuff on the card when my cash ran out. No more credit cards ... no more problem there. Now, if I could just get them paid off.

Lol, the CC's are now frozen in the freezer. Chris refuses to close these two cards (we closed two others though) so now they are in the freezer.
