It seems everyone’s looking for ways to save these days. Google’s new application “Tip Jar” might help us do just that.

The purpose of Tip Jar is to help people share ideas on how to save money.

You can contribute your own money-saving tips and vote on the merit of others, and the most useful tips rise to the top of the list.

The motto behind Google’s new Tip Jar is “take a tip, share a tip.”

Tips are divided into eight categories: home, work, finance, kids and family, shopping, food, cars and transit, and travel.

Some of the top ranked ideas…
“Go to the grocery store with your belly full, you won’t buy too many things because you just ain’t hungry.”
“Take advantage of free entertainment in your community- parks, museums, exhibits.”
“Buy a water filter and take your own water to the gym. Bottled water is expensive, unnecessary and bad for the environment.”

The tip jar is only four days old, and nearly 3,000 tips have already been submitted and 42,000 votes have been tallied.
