Hi Collin! I’ve been reading your site pretty much since you were just a tiny blog. Over the years, you’ve taught me to always keep a watchful eye out for good deals on everything.

While at Goodwill, I found this Columbia kid’s jacket. I grabbed it thinking there must be something wrong (stains or broken zipper). To my surprise, it’s in perfect condition. It even smells clean like Tide. I checked the Columbia site and the cheapest kid’s jacket is $50. I paid a whopping $5!! That’s a steal of a deal!

Thank you for all your hard work and inspiration over the years. This just summarizes a year of us chasing the good deals you posted and stretching our dollars to be able to afford to buy lots of useful and cute stuff for our angels.


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!

And speaking of Goodwill, did you ever get a chance to watch my video (filmed in May of 2012!) where I take you shopping with me at a local Goodwill Store here in Boise, Idaho?! If not, click the play button below or head over here to watch the video and find out what goodies I snag! 🙂

  • 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.
