I am not sure if this will help you or not but it works for me.

I have a spreadsheet that I fill in every evening. In it, I put every single thing I bought, even if it was a candy bar out of the machine at work. It has gotten me to the point that I don't want to fill it out, so I tend not to spend.

I know this sounds kind of odd, but it has saved me from spending money.
