Lowe’s & Home Depot: Save on Soil, Mulch, Fertilizer, and More (With This Helpful Reader Tip!)

With Spring getting closer, I want to share this very helpful email I received from Hip2Save reader, Nina, on how to save on soil, fertilizer, and more at Lowe’s and Home Depot! Check it out…

I discovered a way to save lots on gardening supplies such as soil, fertilizer & mulch at my local Lowe’s! Last summer I overheard another shopper in the outdoor garden supply area ask about repackaged bags of potting soil. It seems when the bags become ripped from handling the salesperson will put the entire bag into another clear plastic bag and the item is then half price. Some bags may have spilled and have only 1/2 or 3/4 left of the contents but many are full, they just have a hole or tear in them. I’ve purchased top soil, potting soil, fertilizer, mulch and gravel stones all for 50% off! Now each time I’m at my local Lowe’s I swing by the outdoor gardening section to see what bargains I can find. I may not need it at that moment but sooner or later I will (and there’s no expiration date)!

I’d love to hear your tips on how to save money on outdoor projects as well!

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 Hip2Save.com 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 Hip2Save.com in classic view.

If you prefer to view Hip2Save.com 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.
