Ways to log my spending! Help!

Hiya guys, i've decided enough is enough! I need to take control of my money. I have credit card debt that is mounting approx 5k and I need to take account of my spending and start paying more than the minimum amount.

Ok...A money diary is a good idea, Can anyone give me some advice. Is it as simple as a little book and noting everything down to see where cut backs should be made?

Does anyone have anything that they have done on excel that works that they can share?

I need to start, I Just don't know which is the best way.
