Check out this email I received from Hip2Save reader Melissa –

It’s that time of the year again when we have to start thinking about Christmas gifts for children’s teachers. I have a 4 year old who goes to preschool and I really want to give Christmas gifts to all his teachers. He has 5 teachers in his classroom. I am in a dilemma…what is an appropriate budget?

With that being said, if you’re looking for an affordable gift idea for teachers, neighbors, friends, and more, consider making “We Wash You a Merry Christmas!” hand soaps using this printable template and Bath & Body Works hand soaps (currently on sale 5/$18 or 7/$24) or whatever hand soaps you like! Then just add some ribbon and a personalized note and you have a super cute and frugal gift idea! 🙂

If you’re planning to shop online, you may want to use the promo code FA143271 to score $10 off a $30 or more purchase + Free Shipping on a $50 order (expires 12/7). Or the promo code WILDVANILLA to score 20% off your entire order (expires 12/31). Or you may want to use the code DOLLARLOVE to score $1 shipping when you place a $25 order.

Now it’s your turn…what are your frugal but thoughtful teacher gift ideas? And, if you’re a teacher, we’d love to hear what gifts you appreciate most! 🙂

(Thanks, Melissa!)

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!
