Goals and parameters are key to success.  

Why are you even doing no spend September???
Saving for a trip, adoption, get out of debt.  You need a reason that motivates you when you are tempted to run through drive through or buy that shirt online.

Parameters- go through each months expenses and as the following questions:
1. Is there anyway I can reduce or eliminate this expense?
2.  What is my action step to do this (aka parameter or rule you need to follow)?
3.  How much do I think I will save?
