New Video: Hip2Save Behind the Scenes

So today’s video is different than most as it’s not about deals (sorry!). Instead, I give you a behind the scenes look at what life is like as a mom, wife, and blogger. Watch the video to see what I’m up to during the day and on the weekends. I even show you what I truly look like on a busy blogging day – still in my pajamas with un-brushed hair and a make-up free face. Pretty scary! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    So funny you posted this today. I was going to email and ask how you stay looking so amazing!!! I like your clothing style too… there possibly another blog in the future geared toward healthy lifestyle??? I’d LOVE that!!

    Collin, I appreciate all the hard work that you put into this blog and your assistants too. Another thing is you are classy and don’t get into those questionable deals. You offer deals that are reliable and of good value. Your honesty, cheerfulness, and hardworking ways is greatly appreciated.

    I so enjoyed your video (and others from the past). It creates a deeper connection seeing you and your cohorts in action. You are not just an app/facebook page/website for those of us trying to make our money go further, you are a generous group of people providing assistance to those in need. The education you have provided will no doubt see us through these difficult times, but will continue to be a part of our lives when the clouds have parted. Thank you for your guidance and entertainment. Thank you for always remaining ethical and moral throughout.
    Bless you, your family, your coworkers,

    also…when you started, did you envision this site growing and how did you know when to bring people in? I am a network marketer for a very successful workout line….I’d love if you posted (possibly for a premium) how to develop and grow your brand/site. Another income stream for you and very valuable information to share.

    I am so glad I watched this… you are such a real person in all your videos! I appreciate everything you and your staff do to give us all these great ways to save money! What an inspiration you are…. Can’t wait to see what the future has in store for you!

    Thanks Collin . For keeping it real and show a little of your life. We as women should do more of that because we know that all behind the scenes everybody’s life is chaotic. Be more forgiven to one another and proud because women we rock.

    Hi Colin,
    Thanks so much for the video! I absolutely love your site and have become addicted to it for the past year. If I miss just one day, I feel as though I’m not equipped to face that day. You and your crew do a magnificent job! Even after seeing the video I still don’t see how you manage; it all seems quite overwhelming to me. Again, Thanks for all you do!

    Thank you to you and the team for all of your hard work. I can’t tell you how many times over the years I have told people about your site. By far this is my favorite deal site out there!!!!

  15. nicoleabradley

    Thanks, Collin and team, for your hard work to help bring us the best deals! You are my go-to deal site and one of the reasons is because you make this type of personal connection (like this video) with your readers. Keep up the great work! You guys deserve all the hard-earned success you’ve had! THANK YOU!!

    Colin this year I am so thankful for you and your staff at Hip2save…I will be couponing 1 year in January and only began after watching one of your videos. You made it look so fun and easy that I took the plunge!!! My younger sister started a few months ago as well and I sent over to your video series to get started!!! I have saved soooo much money this year thanks to you…I appreciate ALL you do to make my life easier!!! Again Thank You so much and have a great Thanksgiving!!

    Been a loyal reader since 2008! I had no idea that your blog was brand new then. I was brand new to couponing, but out of the thousands of couponing blogs I began to peruse, I stumbled upon yours, and could tell yours was different. It’s the only one I use and refer people to now. Even after watching the video, I still don’t know how you do it all!

  19. Mel

    Thanks for keepin’ it real Collin!! I’m bookmarking this video so I can watch it on my “off days”…or when I’ve locked my in the bathroom…ha ha ๐Ÿ™‚ You are such an inspiration!!

  20. Sarah R

    You’ve always been my favorite deal site. I have followed you pretty early on (I think sometime in 2009) and I always thought you were the real deal (pun intended ๐Ÿ™‚ ). I like that you are relatable and I love seeing how much your site has grown. I appreciate how much time and effort you put into this business. It really shows. Thanks so much to you and your team! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hello Collin!

    I’ve been following your blog since almost the beginning and feel so fortunate to have found you! Hip2Save is head and shoulders above the other savings sites….your attention to detail, the fact that you follow up on all deals to make sure they are legitimate, no typos (a big pet peeve of mine!), along with devoted readers who are more than willing to help each other makes Hip2Save so very very special! Wishing you and your adorable family a lovely Thanksgiving holiday!

    Collin where did you buy your white living room furniture couch I want one like yours??


    Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you
    a quick heads up! Other then that, awesome blog!
