It takes just three supplies and ten minutes to do this project and the results are SO CUTE & SPOOKY!


Tomato Cage Ghosts

Supplies Needed:

Tomato Cage
Mini Christmas Lights
White Sheet
Black Permanent Marker


Place the cage upside down so the round part is on the ground. Wrap Christmas lights around the tomato cage and cover it with a white sheet. Draw on a ghost face with black marker. Plug in lights and enjoy your spooky Halloween ghost! That’s it!


I’m super excited this project as it was easy and turned out so cute! Plus, I had all the supplies on hand to make a couple, so it was FREE for me. Hooray!

My kids LOVE this and can’t wait for Trick or Treaters to show up for Halloween! I placed them right outside our front door and you can see it from the street! So fun!

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!
