I lived the same when I was in the service. It is called zero based budgeting. The last month of the budget year was shopping time. I kept a "nice, to have list,"at the ready. When my boss would call to ask me to spend, I just submitted the list.
The other name for this kind of budgeting was called, "Use it, or lose it."
