I find personal money management software very good. If you can get your historical data and review your expenses that will be your first step towards saving. This will help you evaluate where you spend your money and identify the top 3 areas where you want to reduce the discretionary spending. After that it is your determination to stick to the plan.
Try to differentiate between your needs and wants. There is enough temptation out there to convert your wants into needs. Do you have an iPad 2? Do you actually need the New iPad? Perhaps not but you want it.
As LandmarkWealth mentioned 10% of your income is a great start too.
