Can you believe that the 2014-2015 school year is nearing an end and Summer break is right around the corner!?! As you may already know, during the week of May 4th-8th, 2015 many schools will be honoring their teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week.
If you’re looking for creative but frugal gifts to show your appreciation, consider making an Easy Pencil Vase or personalized and fun gift card holders for all your favorite teachers. Then just insert flowers (store-bought or freshly picked from your garden) or attach a gift card…an easy and much appreciated way to say thanks to all the wonderful teachers in your life! :)
To get ya thinkin’, you may want to start off by printing these cute Thank You Notes and personalize them for each of your kiddos teachers. If you have any other creative, affordable, or meaningful teacher gift ideas, be sure to share them in the comment section below! And, if you’re a teacher, what gifts do YOU personally enjoy receiving?
To all of you teachers out there…THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! You are so valued and appreciated! :)

With Valentine’s Day upon us, I thought it might be fun once again to create a place for all of you to share your small and/or home-based businesses (i.e. Etsy, Avon, Scentsy, etc.) with other readers and/or to offer Hip2Save readers a special discount on products that you sell. I have posted this quite a few times now on Hip2Save and it has always been quite a hit!

If you regularly fill prescriptions and are wondering what store offers the best price to get it filled, check out this email and helpful tip I received from reader, Joe….
To compare pharmacy prices nearest you, just head over here, enter the prescription drug name that you or your family needs and your location, and then click “Find the Lowest Price”. You will then be directed to a page that will inform you on where you can purchase this specific drug at the cheapest price nearest you! You’ll also be able to find pharmacy coupons, manufacturer discounts, generics, comparable drug choices, and savings tips! Awesome!
You can also download the GoodRx App on your iPhone, iPad, or Android smartphone to get prices and coupons while you’re on-the-go. Plus, get a GoodRx discount card for FREE that can be used for discounts of up to 80% on most prescription drugs at most U.S. pharmacies. You can use it for every member of your family (even pets!) and there are no quantity limits or hidden fees!
Do you have any other tips related to saving on prescription drugs? If so, please share in the comments below!

Then just add some ribbon and a personalized note and you have a super cute and frugal gift idea! :)
