Hip2Save This Holiday Guest Post Submitted By Reader Claire…

Just like all the other Hip2Save shoppers I buy stocking stuffers throughout the year. Every time I would get something for the stockings I would hide the bag in my closet. Plus all the samples and free things that I get in the mail would get thrown into a bag. The last few years I felt like I was digging through bags and bags of stuff trying to fill all the stockings on Christmas Eve. We have a family of 5, with one on the way, plus the stockings that we do at grandmas house, it was getting overwhelming.
This year I bought a box of gallon zip lock bags and labeled one for each person. I hide the bags in a diaper box in the garage, and trust me no one is looking in there. 😉 Now as soon as I get something for a stocking it goes directly into that persons bag. I can easily see how much stuff each person has and make sure all the kids have equal amounts. As soon as I find a deal on Christmas candy I will buy it and divide it between the bags. Now when it is time to fill stockings all I will have to do is empty the gallons bags into the stockings!

  • 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.
