**Remember that Staples Easy Rebates are just that, easy! Go on over here to read more about them. Basically you’ll be able to submit all your info online. You won’t even have to mail anything in– the best part in my opinion! You’ll receive your rebates within 4-6 weeks after submitting them!

Do you have a HUGE stockpile of Back to School items?! If so, you may want to consider donating some of these items! Through September 18th, you can donate school supplies to Do Something 101 via collection bins at all Staples store across the country.

Do you have any creative uses for Back to School items?! Check out this email from reader, Lisa, to learn how she puts her back to school supplies to use…

I buy as many of the plastic slider pencil cases that so many places have for either free of 25¢.  They fit 5 matchbox cars into them almost perfectly.  I then throw the box into my diaper bag or purse and always have a small toy to distract my kids at the doctor’s office or while waiting elsewhere. I also buy the slider index card boxes to keep flashcards or other card games in.  The cardboard boxes that these games usually come in don’t last too long, so I put them in the plastic cases for better wear and tear.

Do you have any unique or clever ideas that you would like to share?! Let us know!

  • HIP List
  • Print

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 move 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, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, 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. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
