I absolutely LOVE your website! And, I thought it might be helpful to remind all the Hip2Savers that you can find some really great deals at yard sales….and, in particular, community yard sales. There is so much more to choose from when there are a lot of sales in close proximity to one another. And, it’s much more efficient from a time and gas perspective!

Last weekend, I went to three community sales that were near my house. I couldn’t believe what I found……so many great brands including: Baby Gap, Gap, Justice, Mini Boden, Gymboree, Children’s Place, Old Navy, Carter’s, Nine & Co, Build-A-Bear and more! And, some of the items were brand new with tags!

Here is a picture of my haul……40 items in total…..and, my total cost was only $20!! I couldn’t believe it! There are quite a few items that would retail for over $20 EACH! I actually picked up a few items for people that I know who are on a limited budget and need clothes for their children! So, it is a very affordable way to help others and it is a fun adventure. You never know what you will find! Have fun!!


Do you have a funny, “Hip”, or unique photo to share?! Email us at happyfriday@hip2save(dot)com. Every Friday, I will post one photo, submitted by you and/or another Hip2Save reader, that gives us a glimpse into your frugal lifestyle or simply makes us smile. If your photo is published on Hip2Save, we’ll email you a $10 Amazon e-card!

What is the HIP List?

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 add 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, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, 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. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!


If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.


Now, just print your customized HIP list whenever you're ready to go shopping and snag some "Hip" deals!
