Hi all,

I had a thought this morning as I was munching breakfast (2 Krispy Kreme doughnuts that I really didn't need). I've been trying to get back on track with LBMM. I'm a lapsed Fool because I couldn't justify the subscription. (Yes, I'm sure it cost me more over my absence than just paying, but that's another post for another day.)

Back to my thought. I was sitting there in a mall food court eating my doughnuts and frankly beating myself up for being too lazy/irresponsible/frivolous to eat breakfast at home. I have been trying to keep track of all of my expenses for the month as you all recommend, but it hasn't been working very well. So as I was updating my list with $2.01 for b-fast, I started wondering if I should be trying to plan my weekly expenses out in advance. I'll still be keeping track of my expenses but maybe this would be that extra impetus I need. That way it would be clear to me that I was making an impulse before I made it. Maybe it would help me to not waste money better spent on my e-fund.

So here's my questions for you all. Has anyone ever tried this? Did it work?

I'd appreciate any thoughts you care to give me.
