Resist buying that "just got to have" item by making it hard to get to your credit card. Fill a quart freezer bag with water and put your credit card inside and put the bag in your freezer compartment. When it's frozen, put the quart sized, frozen credit card in a half gallon bag and fill it with
water and put in the very back of your freezer compartment. Having to go home and dig out the credit card and un-thawing it means you REALLY need the item - or you have no won't power at all!
I have a notebook in Evernote with a separate note for each restaurant I visit and what the best options are for my diet plan in each. I don't write down the "best options" that I wouldn't like either - just what I'd actually order. With my smart phone, I have that custom reference to keep me on track.
Having a plan is half the battle, having it HANDY is the other half.
