Please share any tips you have below and let’s help Molly and other readers who are trying to save on home costs!
Did you see these frugal home tips?!

Body Shop Settlement
c/o Dahl Administration
PO Box 3614
Minneapolis, MN 55403-0614
Are you wondering what this settlement is about? The Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA) requires that all but the last five digits of a consumer’s credit or debit card numbers be deleted from credit or debit card receipts presented to customers at the point of sale. The Body Shop is accused of providing its customers with credit or debit card receipts displaying more than the last five digits of the card number. For more information, go here.

Note from Collin:
Do you have a product you love? We definitely have many favorite products here on the Hip2Save Team, and thought it would be FUN to share some of them with you! I personally love product recommendations and I’ve also had a few requests from readers, so I have asked each member of the team to think of products they love (cosmetics, kitchen gadgets etc.) and to write up a post that will be shared here every Tuesday.
Hey all, it’s Collin here!
Like coconut and peanut butter? (I DO!)
This is seriously my absolute FAV peanut butter! It’s my go to snack ~ one spoonful at a time. 😍 You can find this Earth Balance Coconut and Peanut Creamy Spread on Amazon, at various health food stores (I’ve purchased from Whole Foods before), and possibly even at your local grocery store.
Also, if you’re eating a Ketogenic and/or low carb diet, this peanut butter is a great snacking option! 😋 It’s got 7 grams of carbs, 2 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein, and a whopping 16 grams of fat per serving. I personally thrive on fat! WooHoo! 💃
Have a favorite peanut butter?! PLEASE SHARE!
By the way, have you tried these Homemade Banana Peanut Butter Cups?! YUM, and I bet they’d be even better with this coconut and peanut butter spread!
Did you see our other Try THIS Tuesday posts?

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 Hip2Save.com 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!
