Dealzmodo: Google Tip Jar Offers Ways To Be Cheap

Apparently being a Google employee doesn't insulate you from the economy, which is why some of them set up a "Tip Jar" site in order to swap ways of being cheap.

There are some good (if old) tips like calling up your cable company to threaten to cancel your service, then reaping the retention bonuses they shoot your way. There are also some lousy, not useful ones like "stop smoking" and "don't eat at McDonald's." [TipJar via NYT]
