If you have good money-management advice for others, Google wants you to share it. Inspired by the credit crunch and the wealth of ideas circulating the web on how, where and when to save, they rolled out the Google Tip Jar.

It’s a social way to share your best tips on pinching pennies on everything from traveling (how to pack, where to stay, when to travel, what to eat) to tidbits to make every day a little easier (at home, at work, finance, kids & family, shopping, food, cars & transit).

"Tip Jar is a collection of money saving tips submitted and ranked by the web community," Google explained.

At time of posting, 4,302 people have submitted 3,283 tips and cast 46,987 votes.

An example:

"Bring your backpacks to the grocery & shop using 1 handbasket/person. Not only limits you to buying what you need most, but also avoids plastic/paper bagging. The backpack encourages you to walk easily (and often) to your nearest grocery, hands-free."

"Many airlines now charge you for checking luggage. Save time & money by only bringing carry-on. While its still cold, pack your normal carry-on items in your winter coat (since it doesnt count as a bag). You may look silly but you are saving money!"
