Lots of Americans are trying to find ways to save money these days.  While I'm the first to admit I'm not a financial planner, I've found an easy and painless way to save some money.

Perhaps you're not good about stocking away money from every paycheck.  Give this a try to save some money.  Every time you get some change, even it's it simply a penny, put it in a jar or a piggy bank.  Don't count it right away, just get in the habit of putting your change all in one place.  You would be amazed how quickly change adds up.  I'm not promising it'll be enough to quit your job but it might be enough to  help buy that new appliance you need or pay for this weeks groceries.  Over the past six months, I've been saving my change.  I finally counted it this past weekend and guess how much money I saved?  $265!  This isn't the first time I've saved money this way.  One time I saved my change for an entire year and ended up with $750.  The best part is it's so easy and painless to do it.  So start saving your spare change and see what you save.  It might surprise you.
