Homemade Sugar Scrub

Do you suffer from dry winter skin? A few of my family members have been raving about this wonderful homemade sugar scrub and I agree that it’s wonderful! I tried it recently after a sea salt manicure left me with itchy hives from the salon’s product.  It works just as well as those expensive fancy scrubs and it’s made with natural ingredients!

For this sugar scrub you’ll need equal parts:

– Granulated sugar
Coconut oil
– A few drops essential oil of your choice (I used Lemon Essential Oil and a Thieves Essential Oil blend of eucalyptus, clove, cinnamon, and rosemary)

Combine equal parts coconut oil and sugar. Coconut oil is extremely hydrating and feels dreamy. The sugar gently exfoliates your skin and combined they leave your skin feeling super soft after a bath.  For a stronger exfoliator, you can use less sugar and add in sea salt.

Use a quality essential oil or a blend of your favorite oils like I did here, or you can use a little lemon juice and rind as a natural scent. Your scrub may not keep as long however with fresh lemon.

Keep a little jar of this by your bathtub and enjoy! My pretty blue jar was just $1.49 at Cost Plus world Market.

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!
