Creative Kids Halloween Lunch

Make your little pumpkin a special lunch to get them even more excited about Halloween!

Bento box style lunches are super popular right now because you can use up whatever you have available in your fridge and get creative with your ingredients. Grab your Halloween themed cookie cutters and put together an easy and festive lunch with different shaped pieces of bread or tortillas, cheese, lunch meats, fruits, and veggies. Kids love being able to put together their own sandwich or wrap.

These string cheese fingers are super easy to make, and don’t they look real? Use a small pairing knife to carefully cut the “knuckle” marks in a piece of string cheese. Then cut a shallow “nail bed” on one end. Last, cut a small piece of red bell pepper in a nail shape and place it on top.

I’ve colored an orange with an edible food coloring pen to look like a pumpkin. Those can be purchased online or in most craft stores. Or instead – you could opt to “carve” out eyes, a nose, and a mouth on your orange.

My lunch box has some adhesive chalkboard vinyl inside for writing notes. That’s an easy and fun DIY project. You can write a note or funny joke for your child to enjoy…

Do you like creating unique lunches for your kids too? We’d love to hear your great ideas!

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!
