You can use a small external HDD, which connects to the USB.

It will use the hard drive by default if you boot from a CD, but if you boot from a USB flash drive, you can choose to have the flash drive also serve as the persistent storage space.
I have a somewhat outdated guide to installing Knoppix to a flash drive, but it is much simpler to just use unetbootin now.

I like ubuntu and linux mint for how it looks, only used ubuntu. Soon to boot from a flash drive too.
I believe you can save changes. Unless I'm reading it wrong. （－＿－）ノ
