Sent from reader, Meghan:

This past Friday I got home from work and was talking to my boyfriend as I was going through our mail. I was really excited because I got 3 months of the Whole Living Magazine I just signed up for using my Recyclebank points (I am in LOVE with getting all my magazines through Recyclebank!) Sticking out of the top was an advertisement with a special offer. The print and color was really cute so I pulled it out to see what type of product it was for. As I was looking at it I was like, “HEY, that’s me…a picture of me” and then thought “these photo companies are getting really high-tech” (assuming they sent me an ad to entice me to order by using an image on file from one of my previous coupon deals).

However, it wasn’t for a free photo deal, it was for a Free Husband! My super special guy figured out the perfect way to propose to this couponer! He even included coupon terms and a UPC code (the 08132006 portion is our anniversary). He works at a printing company, so a coworker helped him make this for me, which makes it super thoughtful, sweet, special and FREE!!! I feel like the internet and all these YouTube proposals put a lot of pressure on guys to do something grandiose and expensive, so I just wanted to show that something thoughtful and FREE could stack up just as well 🙂


Do you have a funny, “Hip”, or unique photo to share?! Email us at happyfriday@hip2save(dot)com. Every Friday, I will post one photo, submitted by you and/or another Hip2Save reader, that gives us a glimpse into your frugal lifestyle or simply makes us smile. If your photo is published on Hip2Save, we’ll email you a $10 Amazon e-card!

  • 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.
