Sent from reader, Sherry:

I moved from Australia to the United States in 2014 to be with my husband who was still in graduate school back then. I couldn’t work because of my visa status but I wanted to contribute somehow financially, so my husband introduced me to your wonderful site. That’s how I started couponing!

Since then, I was able to cut our spending on daily essentials (paper products, personally care items, grocery etc.) to a third of what we would normally pay. On top of that, I was also able to have a stock pile of paper products and personal care items, and a fully stocked gift closet by following the deal scenarios you post.

In 2014 on Black Friday, you posted an Amazon deal where they had select Fisher-Price toys BOGO, plus you got a Gund bear for free. I didn’t have a baby back then, but I knew these toys would be perfect when I had kids. So I went ahead and bought a Fun with Friends Music Table and a Stride to Ride Puppy. This March, my husband and I welcomed our son Bradley into the world. He is now 6-months old. And the toys I bought for him 2 years ago bring him so much fun! Oh, the joy I feel when I watch him play!

Thank you so much for all the hard work you guys put into the site and deals you post! You are helping my family in so many wonderful ways and we absolutely appreciate it! Keep up the great work!

  • 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.
