i would think limiting myself to one reward a month for binge free behavior would lead me to a fukitol attitude. For instance on day 15 I find something I really really really want, so I buy it. There is my one reward... so now I have 15 days where I have to be good without a reward... screw that my mind would say... I say give yourself TWO rewards a month. One midway and one at the end. Why would a dog sit if there's no treat in it??
