Hip2Save is a nationally-recognized coupon and savings blog. Collin Morgan, mother of three and proud wife to a former Marine, began the blog in the summer of 2008 as a way to help herself, family, and friends save money. Little did she know that her hobby would turn into a full-time endeavor.
My frugal journey started after the birth of my first child. My husband was an active duty Marine. We were young (still are! ;) ) and were not prepared for the many responsibilities that come with adulthood and parenting.
In all honesty, our focus was way more on materialistic things – making sure that the kiddos looked adorable and that we did too. Going out to buy new clothes and driving flashy cars were at the top of our list. We worked hard to make it look, at least on the outside, that our lives were perfect. The sad truth was that we had started digging a big financial hole – one that was going to be very difficult to get out of. I was depressed on the inside, but I just ignored that feeling and pushed it to the side by purchasing more and pretending. Soon enough, our credit card debt was out of control, and a vicious cycle had begun. The more depressed I became, the more I spent.
In addition to dealing with massive credit card debt, I was also suffering from Bulimia. If you’re interested in hearing more about my story regarding addiction, depression, and how those little things called coupons have done so much more than save me money, please watch the video here.
I began blogging, under the name of Hip2Save, as a way to chart a new path for myself and to get my spending habits under control. My family and friends were my readers and my support base. Blogging gave me the courage to try out new behaviors, use my imagination, and explore new possibilities. At the same time, it helped me shift my priorities: Family and the simple pleasures in life came to the forefront, and material things took a back seat.
Fast forward ahead: My life has changed in so many positive ways. I have discovered that it really is HIP to save and a whole lot more fun and rewarding than overspending and dealing with debt. I have climbed out of a very deep hole and am learning to be accountable to myself, my family, and now to you too.
Who knows what’s around the corner, but, with all you amazing Hip2Savers in my life, I definitely look forward to the journey ahead.
