Well, if you're serious about learning how to do magic and with starting from the rock-bottom then you don't start out by casting spells, you start out by learning how and why magic works.
You see, there is no such thing as an "easy" spell or a "beginner" spell. One either understands how magic works and has mastered the basics...in which case the magic will work..or you haven't done that sort of work..and no spell will work no matter how "easy" it seems.
Casting a successful spell involves much more than finding some spell on the internet or in a book, saying some words, lighting a candle, waving a wand of any of that sort of thing. In order for magic to work you need to understand how and why it works in the first place. Grounding and centering, visualization, focus and intent, energy manipulation, etc are all necessary first steps to even begin to have a chance at a spell actually working...and more importantly to prevent a spell from back-firing on you.
So, my advice for anyone who is truly serious is to start by reading a few books and practicing the exercises those books will give you. Once you have mastered the basics you won't need anyone to give you spells, you'll be able to create your own spells that will be far more effective than anything you find on the net. Here's the books I suggest:
"Before You Cast a Spell" by Carl McColman
"Spells and How They Work" by Janet and Stewart Farrar

First thing you need to do is learn all the basics of magick. This includes what the elements are, understanding what is used by correspondences, how to use the tools and why, casting a circle, setting up an altar, and so much more.
If you need some sites for learning these basics, let me know. I'd be happy to list you some reliable ones.
However, once you've gotten those down, which will take more than a day to really do, check out http://www.llewellyn.com/spell.php Its the Llewellyn's Spell a Day page where they post a new spell everyday and they are fairly easy spells that I know to be written by experienced witches. You can search through the spells posted in the past too.
