Happy Friday: Creative Zoo Gift in a Box

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Sent from reader, Tera:

When I asked my sister in law for gift suggestions for my nephew’s upcoming birthday, she suggested a visit to the zoo. I love giving experiences as gifts to my children and nephews, but let’s face it: when you’re 7, unwrapping a check with a promise for a visit to the zoo is no fun. So I decided to put together a zoo kit for him to open. It’s inexpensive, but I think he’ll have a lot of fun with it.

Included in the box:
–a brochure and map of the zoo he’ll be visiting (I emailed the zoo asking them to send me the map)
–“Zoo Cash” to buy a treat or souvenir
–a Zoo Passport with pictures of animals he’ll see, a spot to stamp that he saw it and room for any notes or observations about the animal, plus blank pages to draw pictures of other animals. I made my own based on the animals that I know are at this zoo, but you can download and print a generic zoo passport from http://www.education.com/worksheet/article/zoo-passport/
–a leopard-print pencil–for writing down those observations!
–zoo animal stickers
–animal crackers
–a pop-tab can with small plastic zoo animals, jungle fruit snacks, a pencil-top stamper (to stamp the passport), and a couple of zoo-themed trinkets I found at the party store. (go to http://happyhooligans.ca/cool-gift-wrapping-idea/ for how to make the pop-tab can)

HAPPY FRIDAY! :D

Happy Friday: Give Your Business a Jolt (Not!)

Sent from reader, Jeff:

I went for a morning run the other day down the road from my house and ran past this billboard that made me laugh. It was covered by a bunch of trees and you could only read it from a side angle up close. It read “Give your business a jolt.”

I would say I don’t think it’s a surprise that there’s no business that’s jumped at the chance to advertise here. I think the only jolt a business would want is to have a lightning bolt strike down those trees that are blocking the advertisement! ;)

Happy Friday: Not Just a Deal Site…

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Sent from reader, Alysia:

Earlier this month, the Van’s Natural Coupon was posted and I commented saying Thanks, because this was a high value coupon that was EXTREMELY useful to my family! My 2yr old (almost 3) son has severe food allergies to over six everyday items. He can actually eat Van’s Waffles and gets them very rarely because they are so expensive. Several readers asked for my address to send me theirs. So expecting maybe one or two if that, I checked my mail today and received not one or two but TEN Vans coupons. I literally cried – thank you to whomever for taking the time, money and love for one another to send them to me, and thank you Collin for posting and making the helping hands connection like this!

Hip2Save is so much more that just another “Deal site.” You all will make a little boy’s day tomorrow when he gets a waffle for breakfast!

HAPPY FRIDAY! :D

Happy Friday: Getting the Hubby Involved

Sent from reader, Yesenia:

I know everyone always submits photo of their children joining in on their couponing but my biggest achievement has been getting my husband involved. He’s been very into it lately, getting great deals on pop, cereal, soups and even on sports drinks. He averages a 50-60% savings which is not too shabby for a newbie – this is one proud wife! 😊

Happy Friday: Toy Drive All Year Long

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Sent from reader, Jennifer:

I love being able to donate toys at Christmas time, but sometimes I wait too long into the year and don’t have the extra money to do so. I came up with this plan where I have a budget of only $10 a month. Each month, I buy one toy and keep track of it on my sheet. At the end of the year, I will have purchased 12 toys and I won’t even miss the money that I’ve spent through the months. I don’t know why I didn’t think of this sooner!

Happy Friday: Be Kind to Cashiers

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Sent from reader, Kay:

I work as a cashier at Target. Yesterday, I had a guest who was purchasing various things with coupons along with these bottles of Lysol. Out of the blue she asked me if I use Lysol and I said I do. She then gave me 2 coupons for $1/1 Lysol cleaner. They were on clearance at my store for $1.14 (originally $2.29) so only 14 cents after the coupons!

She could’ve cleared the shelf and used the coupons herself but instead she left few bottles for other guests as well as for me. After my team member discount it came down to only 15 cents for two bottles! It was one of the most touching and sweetest things a guest has done for me. I want to say thank you for those who are nice to cashiers – we want everyone to get out happy and with no incidents and these gestures really mean a lot.

HAPPY FRIDAY! :D

Happy Friday: Amazing Egg Hunt

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Sent from reader, Tera:

I’m all set to go for Sunday’s AMAZING Egg Hunt, modeled after The Amazing Race. The hunt includes Detours, Road Blocks, and Route Info, just like on the show, with clues that reveal where the kids should go next and what to do when they get there.

Some of the Detours are placing a marshmallow Peep on your forehead and getting it to your mouth using only your facial muscles and flinging plastic Easter eggs into a basket using a towel as a catapult. Road Blocks include knocking a pencil that’s several feet away down by rolling marbles at it and making a tower out of plastic Easter eggs and TP tubes. Route Info instructs the kids to move from place to place on foot, on bike, jumping, army crawling, hopping like a bunny and walking backwards. It’s all just silly fun stuff with an Easter theme.

The kids have to unscramble letters that they’ve collected along the way to discover the location of the Pit Stop. At the Pit Stop, the kids will find a few little Easter gifts, like sidewalk chalk (on sale with a coupon at Target this week), matchbox cars (buy one, get one half off at Target this week), and of course, chocolate bunnies (that I got free using the Brach’s coupons)

Setting up the Amazing Egg Hunt was low cost and not very difficult–it just took a little bit of creativity and organization–and I love that my kids will be having fun together and making memories rather than doing a traditional egg hunt where it’s over in a matter of minutes and then the kids gorge themselves on candy.

HAPPY FRIDAY! :D

Happy Friday: Stretching the Savings

Sent from reader, Sunela:

From following your site and entering free codes onto the Huggies website, I won a year’s supply of Huggies diapers! I was able to stretch out the savings even more by pairing the free coupons I was sent with store deals (e.g. Buy a jumbo pack of Huggies, get $3 ECB). It was so much fun getting to use all those free product coupons!!

Happy Friday: I Love My Organizer Cart

Sent from reader, Patty:

I received and put together this Honey-Can-Do 12 Drawer Chrome Studio Organizer Cart that I bought through Amazon. This is so wonderful that I can hardly contain my excitement! Every night my husband goes to bed before I do, and I usually do my coupon stuff after. So I would have to grab all my containers, bags and baskets that I have my supplies in and bring them out EVERY night. This was becoming annoying! This cart is so perfect, everything I need is all in one place! I just roll it out to the living room and do my thing!
