We've collected some great 'money hacks,' clever ways to solve everyday problems or make life a little simpler. These tricks can save you anywhere from a few cents to a few hundred dollars. Lots of us long for shortcuts through the complexity of our lives. In previous generations, newspaper columns like "Hints from Heloise" helped homemakers find those shortcuts; as technology blossomed, people started talking about "hacks" or "life hacks" as ways to make our computers -- and ourselves -- more productive. The phrase "money hack" is relatively new, but essentially means a shortcut or a clever way to solve an everyday money problem. Money hacks can also be ways to wring more out of common financial transactions. I've included below some of my favorites, some of which I've used for years and others I've picked up more recently. If you've got some to share that I missed, you can post on the Your Money message board. http://moneycentral.msn.com/community/message/thread.asp?board=YourMoney&ThreadID=150055&BoardName=Hide&header=SearchOnly&Footer=Show&LinkTarget=_parent&pagestyle=money1 More of Article: http://articles.moneycentral.msn.com/SavingandDebt/ConsumerActionGuide/12CoolMoneyTricks.aspx
