Want to make your home smell like Fall naturally? 🍂🍎

If you’re a fan of delicious smells like cinnamon, apple, and pumpkin spice, here’s an easy way to fill your home with those scents on the stove or in a slow cooker. Simmering scents are a natural way to get your home smelling fresh.

All you have to do is combine ingredients in a small saucepan or slow cooker and simmer! I usually use the stove top method, bring contents to a slight boil, then reduce heat and let simmer. I like that this idea can definitely be improvised to include additional ingredients you may have on hand such as fresh ginger, orange peels etc.

Cinnamon Apple Simmering Scent

Pumpkin Spice Simmering Scent


  • I found whole spices in the grocery store section with the Hispanic spices to be less expensive then the options in the packaged jars on the spice isle.
  • You can easily make your own pumpkin pie spice by combining 1/4 cup ground cinnamon, 4 teaspoons ground ginger, 4 teaspoons ground nutmeg, and 1 tablespoon ground allspice. 
  • I found the stove top method to be a little stronger scent than using the slow cooker – it’s my preferred method. Just make sure to check the water or liquid level and add more if it gets low.

  • 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.
