(ME on Cyber Saturday keepin’ it real! )
So… well, to be very honest – I have quite the love/hate relationship with Cyber Monday and Black Friday. Although I absolutely love to snag a great deal, I don’t particularly like the craziness/hype that surrounds these 2 retail holidays. I mean these holidays are called Black FRIDAY and Cyber MONDAY for a reason, right?! They are not called Black THURSDAY or Cyber SUNDAY! So why oh why do all the retailers have to release their deals days/hours in advance of these specially-named holidays. So yes, that was most definitely my low… trying to have a somewhat sane and relaxed Thanksgiving holiday while at the same time posting all the great deals that seemed to pop up constantly (and caring for 3 kids with the flu!). If stores continue to release deals earlier and earlier every year, we’ll be Black Friday shoppin’ in October!
As for my high this week, it is most definitely the beautiful Christmas tree that we just snagged yesterday. And of course, the special memories that we are creating while decorating the tree.

Yep – this is what I look like on the Saturday after Black Friday. Yes – I did brush my teeth, however, I don’t recall brushing my hair… can ya tell? Thanks for waiting patiently for the store deals to be posted. My sidekicks and I got pretty behind due to all the *HOT* deals that have been available lately. I’m totally not complaining – just giving you my excuse for the store deals being posted late. Oh and not to mention that all 3 of my kiddos had the stomach flu. Poor things.
…And I want to thank each of you for taking the time to check out Hip2Save on a regular basis! Your sweet emails and comments mean so much to me. I really do feel that I have the most amazing readers!

READER TIP: About once a year my family gets Strep. About 2 more times a year we *think* we have Strep. I just found on Amazon where you can order Rapid Strep Tests to test at home. They are $35 for 25 tests, and have quite positive reviews. Just this morning I took my son to the doctor with all Strep symptoms present, only to find out he has a cold. My copay was more than 25 strep tests. Buying this kit one time pays for itself. Thanks Collin and Happy Thanksgiving!
Have any of you purchased this before? Thoughts?

I’m a huge fan of thrift stores and repurposing my finds. You can score some awesome things without spending a ton of money and it can be a really fun “sport”. One item you always see lots of are these storage “trees” intended for storing coffee mugs. Here are two other ways to utilize them in your home.
They are great for organizing bracelets and necklaces. Above is a general example of the before and after effect of taking a dark wood color mug tree and spraying it white (and yes, the before mug tree is not identical to the after mug tree as I forgot to grab my camera and get the before shots – woops!). So for just a few dollars (the cost of the used mug tree and paint), I have a fun way to organize jewelry!
Here is the one in my craft area that holds some ribbon, twine, and tape.
Do you like to repurpose thrift store items too? What would you organize with a mug tree?

Sorry for just now getting this up – better late than never, right? – And I apologize for not posting a high and low last week… I guess life got the best of me!
This past week has been full of lots of highs for the Morgan family! First, my daughter, Piper, turns seven years old tomorrow (my baby is sure growing up!). We celebrated her birthday on Saturday with family and her entire first grade class. In order to keep all the kiddos entertained, we invited an awesome clown (well worth the investment in my opinion) who entertained the kiddos with lots of fun tricks and silly jokes.
I was also blessed to have both my aunt and cousin visiting from Texas at the birthday celebration. I only get to see them about once a year so it was really special to have them there for Piper’s party as well.
Luckily, we had time to take an all-girls picture which included my sister, Bryn, my mom, my cousin, and 2 aunts, my nieces, and myself and Piper.
My low is most definitely the fact that my Gluten-Free Birthday Cake was an almost complete flop! Thankfully, it tasted much better than it looked! And I was also grateful that we took the time to make another homemade (and very edible!) birthday cake for Piper and all her friends (as pictured at the very top).
