Save Spotlight Searches in the Finder Sidebar

This is a bit of a quickie Finder and Spotlight tip inspired by a comment I made over on the Cultofmac blog.

As you know you can use Spotlight from a Finder window to search for files. Here for example, I’m searching for all the Indie MP3s in my music collection.

So here is the cool part. If you click the Save button you are given the option to put the search into the Sidebar. Once you do this then anytime you need to run a search you can just click the icon in the side bar. Sweet.
