Do you have any bad habits that are bad for the budget?  if yes what are they and how do you work or don't work them in?

I give in to my kids too easily while we're shopping.  so, I plan on an extra $10/week if they're going shopping with me.

Pedicures. They are not necessary but I feel crappy doing it on my own. Not sticking to meal plan/not taking meat out for dinner and the having to pick up something. Buying clearance stuff that's not in the budget.

Stress shopping...i find amazing deals and always have a purpose for the item, like xmas, bday etc, but ido tend to shop more when im stressed out...its bad bc usually im stressed re money so the credit card takes the hit...i really need to hide it.

I try to stick with only things we need. Even if it's only a couple bucks, if we won't get much use out of it I won't buy it. So I do have some rules! Lol
