Valentine's Day Lunch & Printable Jokes Hip2Save

Can you believe Valentine’s Day is this Friday? Here are some cute ideas for packing festive lunches this week to get your kiddos even more excited. Find some heart shaped cookie cutters (check out these here and here) and get creative with whatever is in your fridge and pantry. Heart shaped fruit, veggies, cheeses, sandwiches etc. are always easy and fun.

 And, I’ve created four different lunchbox jokes for you to print and include. If your kids are like mine, they will love these silly jokes.

To make heart shaped snack sized tomatoes, cut them diagonally and secure with a heart toothpick or use a cupcake toppers (I found the ones pictured at my local Dollar Tree). To cut heart shaped carrots, first cut a triangle at the top lengthwise, and diagonal on the sides. Then chop slices.

The cucumbers are simply sliced and then I used a small heart cookie cutter. They are so easy and fun. To make little heart shaped peanut butter sandwiches, use a cookie cutter then press down with the end of a fork to seal.

Finish your lunch with a special note and one or more of the free printable jokes! The lunch box pictured has the inside top lined with chalkboard vinyl from the craft store so that I can use chalkboard markers to write special messages to my kids. I hope you can use these simple and adorable lunch box ideas for your little ones this week!

  • 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.
