Under the Automate button on the Campaign tab, there is a "Pause campaigns when...." option that you can choose. You can set up your conditions for pausing your campaign there.


I would caution you that this will not give precise results. Depending on how large a geographic territory you've selected for your campaign, it's likely that your ad serving is coming out of a number of different ad servers. While Google makes every attempt to stop and start activity promptly when requested, there's always a bit more data that hasn't yet been posted to the UI. You may go over your spend by a small amount--or, if your ads are clicked on more rarely, the system may "slow" your ad serving to try not to exceed your threshold and a small amount may be left unspent.
