HOT! Getting Toasty! Lukewarm Starting To Melt Ice Ice Baby

Can I just take a moment to say that I love ALL my readers… seriously! I really appreciate each and every one of you. I love that everyone on my site is different. We come from different areas, different backgrounds, we’re different ages… we’ve got different interests, but we’re all here for the same reason–to save some money and hopefully have fun doing it. Right?

I know I’ve said this many times before, but I’m not perfect by any means… actually far from it! I think I make more mistakes then the average person (ask my hubby), but you know what, I’m totally fine with that. It’s me being me and I’m not willing to try and concor perfection at 28!;)

I also want to say that I find comments on my site hilarious! Last night I almost peed my pants (no joke) reading through the comments on the Coffee-Mate coupon post. I thought it was quite odd that I had 48 comments, so I started reading through all of them and I’m not kidding, there are some funny comments! This has got to be one of my favorite comments by far:

“I just printed 379 and I don’t even drink coffee!! I am going to buy up every bottle of this from here to the Mason Dixon line! Then I am going to take a bath in it! Wheeeee!! :-)”

The reason I love this comment. Well, first read through the comments before it and then remember this comment is totally sarcastic and there’s obviously no truth to it. The thing I love about this comment, though, the little smile face at the end. To me it says lighten up–which I think is a great thing to remember. Using coupons and snagging freebies doesn’t always go as planned… as I’m sure most of you are aware of. If we remember this and remember there’s always another deal around the corner, then I think we’ll all see that nothing is really that big of a deal.

I know there have been some negative comments on my site, but you know what? There are way more positive comments and there are also quite a few funny comments. These comments always make up for the 1 or 2 negative comments I receive on a regular basis.

Anyway, the point of this post… I’m not quite sure. Now I guess I’ll get back to our regularly scheduled programming and a new deal will be emerging soon……

    I love your site. Thanks for all of the hard work you do to save money and get great deals for all of us!

    I think you are really cool and brave for allowing anonymous comments. You know you’re going to get a lot of nastiness because some people are just mean when they can be, but also it probably helps you get more honest feedback.

    I think we should start a “addicted to Hip2save.com” group. To join you must be one of the people who admit to checking your site at least 10+ times a day. I would definately be in that group. Thanks for all your hard work. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think that it is great that you take time out to do this at all!

    Collin! We love you!

    I so wish you lived near me, when I watched your follow me videos I realized how alike we are, and how great we would get along! I love the connection I feel like I have with your readers… Us couponers need to stick together! Woot for you and the fabulous job you do! I am ALWAYS referring people to your website- ones in the store who ask me where I get all my coupons, friends, I even send family members links to your site to the deals I think they’d like!

    I’m rambling but just wanted to say THANK YOU and I wish we could be REAL life friends! lol ๐Ÿ˜€

    It’s so fun to see more of your personality on your Monday videos. I just think, “I would love to be friends with her!” I’m glad that we get to know you a little through your posts. Thanks for all your great finds and for saving us money. You’re amazing!

    I have not read any other comments but I think if you did not have any bad ones then this would not be a real site. I like to read the bad with good. I am a stay at home mom and this is my gossup area so you need both. I love this site more then you will ever know.

    We need you. Not as much as your family, of course, but you’re quite important! I think everyone should be very nice to you ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I got a laugh this week when I received my first $5 from the SC Johnson rebate. They must not have realized there was a personal response to a complaint on the form and they were sorry I wasn’t satisfied with my Drano purchase.

    Thanks and blessings,

    Collin, you’re the best. I check your site many, many times a day. We love what you do! And, I love that you can laugh at the handful of obnoxious people out there. Haha!

    You rock!

    I love your site and check it often, every day. I really look forward to it, it’s like a ‘pick-me-up’ and you are like that to us. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have noticed such a difference in my family’s savings due to my constant use and ‘continuing education’ that is the world of couponing. As far as people and their negative attitudes, usually that just means they are not very happy w/themselves or else think that everyone’s thoughts should be their thoughts and we all know that isn’t right! Just keep doing what you are doing. You will always have the overriding support of all of us!

    I have never commented on your site before, but I have to tell you, I have loved your blog! You have changed the way I coupon and saved me tons of money. Not everything is going to work out and sales associated don’t always get things right either. It’s just fun trying to get the best deal on things I already need and use. Thanks for your hard work, and thanks for NOT being perfect!

    I 2nd the addiction! I have serious issues and check your site numerous times a day. I’m sooo bad, but you’re sooo good! Thanks for your time and energy that I don’t have.
