Grab some extra cash. Don't **** it off, or think you can spend more money because you have extra income. That will be a huge help. Huge.

The other thing to consider is that if you grab a second revenue source, that keeps you busy. If you have idle time, that's when you spend the most money. If you're working all the time, you can't **** off your money doing stupid shit.
Yep. $250/week for groceries and entertainment when you are wanting to get out of debt given your current net revenue means you have too much time on your hands.

That extra revenue will also cut down on your discretionary expenses because you won't have the time to spend it. It will allow you to a) pay down your debt faster, b) create some savings, and c) let you really examine what expenses are actually important to you; quality expenses are more important than quantity expenses.
