Looking for a creative way to write out reasons your family is thankful on Thanksgiving? 🖋️

Have your family and dinner guests write on real or faux craft pumpkins to express their feelings of gratitude. It makes for both a fun meaningful activity and cute table decoration you can use for years to come!

For this chalkboard Pumpkin idea, all I did was paint craft pumpkins using black chalkboard paint. Once dry, you can write on your pumpkin using chalk or liquid chalk markers.

On this example, I simply used a liquid chalk marker to write on a cream colored craft pumpkin. You can do the same on real pumpkins as well!

 These turned out so sweet!

I love the tradition of writing out what we are thankful for on Thanksgiving with my kids! This is a fun alternative to the “I’m Thankful Jar” activity we usually do!

  • 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.
