Hip2Save This Holiday Guest Post Submitted By Reader Salina…

Here’s an easy Christmas gift for people who have everything, or for family flying back home! My grandmother came up with “money bags” a few years ago since most of my family flies in for the holidays and can’t take big items home on the plane. Instead of just putting money in a card, she places rolled bills tied with festive ribbons in a ziploc bag adorned with some sort of Christmas cut-out. The notes on top vary, which is fun because you can be as creative as you want. The one pictured above was for my little cousin Sam and reads:

Gingerbread men with yummy icing, are oh so good and extremely enticing.
I set out to make you a dozen or two, but time ran out so now what to do?
SO instead of cookies I tied with a bow, your own personal serving of holiday dough!

It’s a super cheap, super easy idea and brings a smile to everyone’s face… plus, who doesn’t love money?

  • 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.
