I know that this isn’t your traditional Hip Tip, but this one is about keeping cookies fresh! I recently made cookies and had my mom over today. She tried a cookie and told me that my bread was doing its job. That’s when I realized that a lot of people do not know this tip —> if you put a slice of bread in with your stored cookies, they will stay soft. I have mine in Ziploc bags and I put a slice of bread in each bag. A week later, they are still as soft as the day I made them. The bread will get rock hard but your cookies stay soft and delicious. You can swap out the bread for a new slice when you feel like it is no longer doing its job. If your cookies have already started to get hard, this tip can bring some of the softness back as well.

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!
