Note from Collin:
Do you have a product you love? We definitely have many favorite products here on the Hip2Save Team, and thought it would be FUN to share some of them with you! I personally love product recommendations and I’ve also had a few requests from readers, so I have asked each member of the team to think of products they love (cosmetics, kitchen gadgets etc.) and to write up a post that will be shared here every Tuesday. Michelle, my sidekick, is sharing one of her favorites…

Hi there! It’s Michelle, one of the Hip2Save sidekicks! 

It’s been about a year since I received this Heidi Swapp Lightbox as a gift and in that year it’s become such a fun part of my home. I smile every time I walk by and see the message I’ve left for my family, and I love when one of my kids has surprised me by changing the message.

This Lightbox has three sections that the letters slide in and out of. The original kit comes with the Lightbox and you can buy letters in different fonts, numbers, phrases, and even icons and emojis to customize your message.

I leave little inspirational messages for my kids, and I turn the light on at night as a nightlight in our downstairs hall.

I use it for parties and holiday decor too, and I always get lots of compliments on it.

We have a tradition in our home that on the last day of school I serve my kids a ridiculous breakfast full of sugary items that I would never allow on a normal day. Last year I gave them each a plate of cookies and I lit up my Lightbox with this fun message. 😃

You can grab one of these Lightboxes at Michaels , plus you can save even more by using a Michaels store coupon (they often have 30% off up to 50% off regular-price item coupons available)! There is a mini version available too, but I like the bigger 13 x 10 version. The extra letters and icons vary in price from $3.99 – $4.99 (just make sure you purchase the size of letters that fits your size of Lightbox!)

I promise you’ll find all sorts of reasons to use it!

Note from Michelle: This is just an honest post that was not sponsored by the manufacturer. I just really love my Lightbox & wanted to share it with you. Enjoy!

  • 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.
