  12. 12. Problems During Intervention Not always enough time to go grocery shopping Ineffective contingency  $2 penalty was not large enough
  13. 13. Recycle The $2 penalty contingency was ineffective Increased penalty to match the cost of the meal  If meal was $6, penalty was to pay performance manager $6 (Including performance management)
  14. 14. My Results I found the recycle phase to be more effective Paying my performance manager the amount that matches the price of the meal was more aversive than the simple $2
  15. 15. My Comments Between you and me, I will not continue this project any longer. It was nice being able to save money by limiting myself to one restaurant-meal a week. BUT, it was so annoying. Especially when I would not finish homework until later in the evening and was too tired to cook.
