(My Freezer. My Pride and Joy! πŸ˜€ )

First, let me say that I didn’t do a “Follow Me Monday” video yesterday… as you may have noticed. Instead, I have been working hard getting prepared for this upcoming “Follow Me Monday”: Holiday Challenge! For the next 30 days, starting Monday, 10/18, and running thru the week of 11/8, I will be hosting a weekly Holiday Challenge! The challenges will be focused on getting prepared for the upcoming holidays and will include everything from freezer cooking to creating homemade gifts to snagging inexpensive toys that can be donated to a child in need. And here’s the important part… you MUST enter now in order to be considered for the upcoming giveaway prizes (and let me tell you, the prizes are AWESOME)!

Wondering what exactly you are being asked to sign up for? Here are all the details…

* By signing up below (i.e. clicking on the “enter this giveaway” button), you are confirming your participation in the upcoming weekly challenges/giveaways. For instance, if I announce that I will be focusing on freezer cooking next week, I will post the ingredients that you will need to purchase in order to participate. You will then need to purchase the ingredients and make the dish along with me to be considered for a giveaway prize. Of course, you’re welcome to alter the recipes with ingredients you have on hand.

* To confirm that you are truly participating each week, I will ask that you take a photograph of yourself and/or your kiddos (optional) with the finished dish or task at hand. If you are selected as a giveaway winner for one of the weeks (and there will be LOTS of giveaways!), I will ask that you email me this picture.

* Each week, participating Hip2Save readers will be entered to win awesome prizes related to the challenge for that week.

* During the final week, Hip2Save will be giving away something that will enable you to store the meals that we will have prepared together (any ideas on what this might be? It’s cold and rather large! πŸ˜‰ )

* So what are you waiting for? Click below to confirm your participation. Not only will you be entered to win some amazing prizes each week but you will also have a freezer of delicious meals, some homemade gifts, and more by mid-November… perfect for the upcoming holidays!

Here’s to putting more balance in your life as this crazy holiday season gets underway! πŸ˜€

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
