(My dorky self, Collin Morgan!)

My name is Collin Morgan, and I am a wife of a US Marine & mother of three. I began Hip2Save, a nationally-recognized coupon and savings blog, in the summer of 2008 as a way to help myself, family, and friends save money. Hip2Save allowed me to chart a new path for myself (after getting buried in credit card debt) and to get my spending habits under control.

My family and friends were my readers and my support base; and blogging gave me the courage to try out new behaviors 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 learned that it IS Hip to Save and a whole lot more fun and rewarding than overspending and dealing with debt. I have also been blessed to have an amazing community of readers (or Hip2Savers, as we like to say!). These readers are what truly makes Hip2Save unique as they offer support, humor, and a virtual friendship to me and to one another. For more about my story, click here.

  4. Lisa Mcdonald

    I think I have been with you since close to the beginning, I ordered a coupon binder off ebay and your hip2save blog site was listed in there, and from that I have learned so much, I to am from N.C. and have taught other people the basics of couponing just from what I have learned from you. I also teach people to donate thats the most important part of couponing to pass it on and help others.

    • Collin

      Hi Lisa!!

      Thanks so much for being such a loyal reader! I sure appreciate you sticking around! πŸ™‚

  5. Michelle

    CONGRAT COLLIN, That is so AWESOME, and THANK YOU for all you do!

  6. Lydia R.

    Congratulations, Collin! Over the years you have saved me and my family so much money and time. You are a blessing and are so deserving of this recognition πŸ™‚

  7. Melissa

    I want that dress! What store did you find that at?

    • Collin

      I think I bought it at Marshall’s or TJ Maxx… love those stores! πŸ™‚

      • Melissa

        No Marshalls in my area, but I do have TJ Maxx and love it. Thanks!

  8. Megan

    Awww, Colin, I always knew you’d make it big. Congratulations!

  9. KatWoman

    I, too, would like to welcome all of those new to Hip2Save. I have been an avid couponer/bargain seeker for almost 4 years now, and I have tried out many different sites similar to Hip2Save. I assure you that Collin’s site is handled with the utmost honesty and integrity, something to be truly admired with so many sites out there shamelessly promoting things just to get a bigger fan base. I love Hip2Save, and if anyone deserves accolades it is Collin. The TODAY show picked the RIGHT site to associate with their show.

    • Collin

      Reading your comment brought a HUGE smile to my face! I truly have the most amazing readers! πŸ™‚

      • Jenny

        Yea Colin! You are so awesome, totally deserved. Congrats!

  10. Fernanda

    Collin…I can’t believe that you have over 125,000 people on your blog!!!! AMAZING!!!! When I first joined, about 2 years ago, it was about 25,000!!!!!!
    Congratulations!!!! You deserve all the success!! You made our lives easier and so much more fun! Thank you for doing this for us. May God continue to bless the work of your hands!!! HIP2SAVE FOREVER!!!!! <3

    • Collin

      Thanks so much for your supportive comments, Fernanda! I sure appreciate it! πŸ™‚

  11. Ann-Marie

    Congrats, Collin! I am really impressed with the Hip2Help video and event you put together. Saving money is great, but what’s even better is when you use your resources and skills to give back to the community. Be proud of what you’ve accomplished and what lies ahead!

  12. Judy

    You’re awesome collin!!!! Thanks for sharing..

  13. melony

    I see that you are on the main page of!!! That is so awesome!! Congrats to you and your family…

  14. Stephanie

    Great video on Walmart πŸ™‚ I’m guessing yours is friendly. Ours is nothing but RUDE! I mean rude! They argue about every little thing. They tell customers they can only use one coupon per transaction. I told the cashier the other day it’s one per item and she argued with me. I teach classes and run a blog where I live and explained to her that its my job to know that type of stuff. She says very rude to me “ITS MY JOB TOO AND I KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT”. Boy did she look stupid when the manager came over and told her I was right πŸ™‚ I wish we had nice Walmarts here, but that’s just not the case. They are rude and a little on the trashy side. They walk around saying “F” this and “F” that….not a place for children. I will waste my time going to all those stores just to avoid them as much as I can. I got there for freebies or overage.

  15. Jessica

    I have been following your blog since the fall of 2008 and have saved thousands thanks to you. I am so proud of you and you deserve all of the greatness in world!!!!

    • Betty

      Thank you! Thank you!! Thank youuu!!!!!

    • Collin

      Thanks, Jessica! So glad to hear you’ve stuck around through the years! πŸ™‚

  16. Rei

    Congrats Collin…those photos of you are great!

    PS – I miss your videos…when will you post new ones?

    • Collin

      New videos are coming soon. I took a break during the summer, but will be back in action shortly! πŸ™‚

  17. Noreen

    Wow Collin!! I’ve been with you since Oct 2008, its amazing how huge your site has become. You do a wonderful job and I’m so happy I found your site because no other could compare with yours, so I don’t even waste my time looking at any others. You are the BEST!!! Thanks for all the money you have saved my family πŸ™‚

  18. Sulo "Go Get Your 'Coup' On

    We love you Collin! Your site is so fun, uplifting, and informative. It has been such a pleasure to be a Hip2Saver. I’ve been following you since the beginning of 2009 and have enjoyed every great deal, freebie find, and silly comment. CONGRATS πŸ™‚ (y)

  19. Erin

    So excited for you, Collin! You have helped so many and you save me time and money. I really appreciate the fact that you are down-to-earth and that you are honest. That means a lot! Can I also add something I LOVE about your blog? I love the fact that when a deal is over you label the post as “expired.” That saves me so much time. I have looked at other deal sites/blogs that have lots of deals but when you click on them the deal is over. It really is a waste of time so I greatly appreciate you (and your team) taking the time to let us know that the deal is gone. LOVE that! Wishing you great success in the future! God bless you!

  20. Christie

    Hope you’re able to post video from the Today Show on the site. No access to a tv right now and would love to see it. πŸ™‚ Thanks for all you do. I’ve checked out other couponing sites but yours is the only one I follow. It’s so easy to navigate and streamlined so well.

    • TODAY

      Hi Christie! We’ll post TODAY video on Hip2Save in a few minutes. Thanks for being a fan.

  21. steph

    Congrats Collin! that is awesome! you have amazing Drugstore matchups ( I am in NJ, so I have different grocery stores…) Thanks for doing such an awesome job and being such a great example for us newbie bloggers.

  22. Yvonne

    Next segment is called “Steal and Deals” coming up after this commercial break!

  23. Shonda

    Hi Collin!

    I started following you in March 2010 (right during a HUGE financial downturn in our family). You’re knowledge about saving, passion for giving, down-to-earth personality (and lets not forget HUMOR…you crack me up and make me smile) are the reasons I keep coming back for more. Congratulations on your partnership with (my FAVORITE morning show). And welcome to all the new Hip2Savers…you’re going to love it. I actually have a lump in my throat because I’m so proud of you Collin! (((hugs)))

  24. Shannon M

    WOW Collin!!! You deserve this so much. I want to thank you for teaching me in so MANY ways to save money. I have only been with you for 2 years and can’t imagine how much $ I have saved by simply visiting a website each day! The TODAY show could not have picked someone ant better. You are so honest and teach people how to be “honest” couponers and that is why I follow you as opposed to other sites or people. P.S. On a side note I just wanted to tell you how funny it is that my friends and I that visit the site talk about you on a first name basis to our husbands and even they know who you are. Like you’re family. LOL THanks again!!

  25. Toni

    Woot woot Collin! Just heard hip2save on the Today show!! It is like watching my child’s first day of school πŸ˜‰ Thanks for all the savings over the last year! You’ve changed hpow my family shops & all the savings allow me to stay home with my 9 month old!

    Welcome all new Hip2savers….you’re gonna LOVE Collin & all the helpful couponers πŸ˜‰

  26. Karin

    Wow, Congrats Collin!! I just turned on TV now, so I guess I missed b/c around this time is pretty busy for me to send my kiddos to school.
    I’m a SAHM & following you since last spring, and we are still in credit card debt, but me & my hubby aggressively trying to get rid of it together by learning coupons & saving some money. We will be debt-free in near future for sure!
    Welcome to new Hip2Save readers from Today show and you are come to the right place to save money & having fun!! πŸ™‚

  27. Carlita

    Collin…thanks for everything you do for us all. Sometimes really bad situations turn into positive ones if we allow it….Congrats again!

  28. Lisa

    Collin I’m so excited for all the new readers that will be finding you today!! I’ve been couponing for about 2 years and following your blog for about a year. Your blog is by far the BEST one out there. I absolutely love how you break down your coupon matchups for all the stores, makes it SO easy to figure out how to make my list and gather my coupons. I really hope you stick around for years and years to come and that your site only continues to grow. πŸ™‚ Thanks for all the hard work you put into this website, it really shows!

  29. Lola

    Darn I missed it….

  30. Kelley

    Yeah Collin! I am so super excited for you, what an amazing opportunity. Congratulations! Your time and dedication to Hip2Save is so greatly appreciated you have helped me and many friends and family save tons of money as well as enabled us to cash in on some great deals. I found your site years ago and is one that I check faithfully each day, can’t miss my daily does of “Hip”. From the bottom of my heart thank you for all you do and congratulations – you ROCK!

  31. Jennifer

    Congrats! Let’s show those ‘Extreme’ Couponers how to be Hip Couponers! I have been following your site for about a year now and I absolutely love it! A lady in the grocery store saw me trying to match a coupon from my messy little envelope with some hot dogs and gave me your site (and a high value coupon for those hot dogs too).

    Your site same to me when I had hit rock bottom in my life and, as a newly single mom of two little guys, I was struggling. I learned the art of couponing and I have been able to afford to support myself ever since. I can honestly say that what I learned from your site has kept me off of public assistance, something I was trying desperately to avoid.

    The Today Show is lucky to have you, here’s hoping that there are other single mommies out there who find out about your site! They will learn (along with your wonderful sense of humor and personality) that bargain hunting can be fun and you can still be Hip when you have so little. =-)

  32. A.Marie

    YAY for you, Collin!! I’ve been with you since I started blogging (around 2009) and it’s been one heck of a ride!! Remember the lemons??!! I never look at them without thinking of you and laughing!!! I really wanted one of those shirts…..any chance you’ll bring back that giveaway?? πŸ™‚

  33. Monica

    Congrats Collin! I am so excited for you! I have to say this is the BEST coupon website around. I don’t know how you do it Collin, but I am truly grateful for you! I have been following this website for over a year now and I just love your personality and how it shines through your posts. I feel like I know you personally! Today show could not have picked a better person! I visit this website SEVERAL times a day and I get so excited to see the new deals that you update regularly! Me and my husband love you! You are awesome!

  34. Shelly T.

    A big CONGRATS to you! I am another reader that has been here since 2008. I am so thankful to have found your blog and have loved all the savings for my family by following your deal posts. Keep up the good work and best of luck with the new partnership. Thanks for all you do!

  35. Roselyn Robertson

    Collin, A big Thanks for all that you do!!! Thanks for the video of Birmingham and being an instrument of good will to them, God bless you!

  36. Christie5264


    I am soooo proud of you! Congrats for truly making a difference in so many lives. The Today show…wow….impressive! I didn’t realize when I started following you in Nov 08 that you had just starting blogging. Your site was professional…I would have never thought you had just begun. You have the best blog by far and your kind warm heart always shines through and….lets not forget the laughs! Thank you for being real and genuine! I know your momma is proud! πŸ™‚

  37. Mary Pat

    Congratulations, Collin! We’re so thrilled for you! When we teach our Coupon Classes in south Florida, we share your site with our students as one of the best places to see all of the deals that are available. Thank you for your great work and best of luck as you move forward! πŸ™‚

    I tried to place an order for my wife today from the link for “steals and deals” on the Today Show page. The link tried to send me to the admin login page for hip2save which of course wouldn’t work so I typed in the URL. I got to the Hip2Save site and clicked on “steals and deals” there. When I got to the Best Bra site I placed the order and when I try to check out it goes to a page that says “internal server error”. I sent an email to the address given on the “internal server error” page and it came back to me as undeliverable. I went to the contact page for the website and it shows this email and an phone number. When I dial the phone number nothing happens. It doesn’t ring or anything. I sent an email to which I have not received a reply. I next went to the “contact page” on Hip2save, the only option I had that came close to offering hope of letting someone know the problems with the offered product was the option to make a suggestion. (one suggestion would be for the folks on Hip2save to check out the deals they offer to make sure they are legit.) I’m having serious doubts about ordering now. I just thought posting this as comment might help bring it to the attention of someone who could rectify the problem(s).

  39. Kim McLaughlin

    Regarding Jill’s steals and deals…..where is the code located?

  40. cheapomom

    Just wondering why you didn’t put ***WARNING..this website is HIGHLY addictive**** I check at least four times a day..My kids LOVE the freebies cause we play a game of “guess what’sin the Box”..the TAylor Swift Perfume samplewas the one that made my six year old SQUEAL!!! πŸ™‚ THanks Collin!

  41. Teri Beck

    I bought the Jill’s Deals & Steals Mon-Ami bracelets for myself and I (I got 5), after Jill saying they were a $120 retail value. They were listed as such on their website the day of the deal, turns out the “deal” price was their regular price. I bought them thinking I was getting a deal, now I feel cheated.
