Give yourself a certain amount of cash each week, say $100
, and allow yourself no other ATM withdrawals or expenses until next week. If you spend all of your cash early, you have to tough it out the last few days -- if you save it 'til the weekend, you can have some fun.
PNC's (Stock Quote: PNC
) Virtual Wallet
service offers next generation online account management features such as the "Money Bar" -- it allows you to easily divide your funds into three distinct categories: money set aside for bills, money available for spending, and "reserved" funds that should not be used. (Money Bar is also included in the Virtual Wallet iPhone app.)
