If you like to use Febreze spray to freshen up the smell of your home, consider making your own by simply dissolving laundry scent booster in an empty water bottle!

Just use the brand and scent booster you prefer, and then there will be no need to buy a separate Febreze product. I like that you can customize the scent and make it stronger or less strong as desired by adjusting the amount of crystals used.


DIY Febreze Spray

Supplies Needed: 
  • Mix a cup or two of warm water with about a 1/4 cup scent booster crystals until dissolved. Pour mixture into water bottle. Add more water to fill spray bottle.
  • Spray curtains, carpet, sofa, sheets, etc. as desired to freshen smell.


Between the kids and dog, my house can use all the scent boosting possible! LOL! I really enjoy this fresh Downy Unstopables scent on laundry and also throughout the house!

Check out another smart tip reader, Julie C., shared:

“I don’t use these (Downy Unstopables) for my laundry but I thought I should share this tip. If anyone has kids who play sports, especially soccer and hockey, you have equipment bags and shoes that stink! Buy some little organza drawstring bags – check Michaels, Jo-Ann stores or even Dollar Tree. Fill them with Downy Unstoppables, then toss in their gym bags.  Makes a HUGE improvement.”

  • 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.
