Amazing Slow Cooker Cranberry Meatballs
Directions: In a small bowl, combine chili sauce, cranberry sauce, lemon juice, and brown sugar. Pour sauce over meatballs in a slow cooker. Cover & cook for 3-4 hours on high until meatballs are heated through, stirring occasionally. Keep meatballs warm in a slow cooker during your party and serve with toothpicks.

I turned these meatballs into a quick meal by serving them over brown rice and adding a veggie.  Meatball sandwiches would be a great option too!  Yum!

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!
