Sent from reader, Meghan:

This past Friday I got home from work and was talking to my boyfriend as I was going through our mail. I was really excited because I got 3 months of the Whole Living Magazine I just signed up for using my Recyclebank points (I am in LOVE with getting all my magazines through Recyclebank!) Sticking out of the top was an advertisement with a special offer. The print and color was really cute so I pulled it out to see what type of product it was for. As I was looking at it I was like, “HEY, that’s me…a picture of me” and then thought “these photo companies are getting really high-tech” (assuming they sent me an ad to entice me to order by using an image on file from one of my previous coupon deals).

However, it wasn’t for a free photo deal, it was for a Free Husband! My super special guy figured out the perfect way to propose to this couponer! He even included coupon terms and a UPC code (the 08132006 portion is our anniversary). He works at a printing company, so a coworker helped him make this for me, which makes it super thoughtful, sweet, special and FREE!!! I feel like the internet and all these YouTube proposals put a lot of pressure on guys to do something grandiose and expensive, so I just wanted to show that something thoughtful and FREE could stack up just as well 🙂

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!
