I Hope You All Have a Very Merry Christmas…

Can you believe that Christmas is HERE?! 🎄

I can’t! This Christmas season has gone by SO fast… is it me or does it just get faster and faster every year? And to be quite honest, with all of the hustle and bustle, I often forget to stop and reflect on what the holiday season is all about – sharing peace, joy and love with others. ❤️

However, despite the busyness of the holiday season, I’m constantly reminded that I have so much to be thankful for. In fact, I recently watched this CUTE video (below) and it is such a great reminder that we have so much to be thankful for every, single day – not only at Thanksgiving or Christmas!

This video also makes me stop and think about how there are people around us who may be going through a difficult time right now and could use a little love to brighten their day. ☀️

“A random act of kindness is a selfless act performed by a person or people wishing to either assist or cheer up an individual person or people.”

Need some inspiration? I created the following video about paying it forward back in 2013. If you’re having a hard time viewing the video, you can watch here.

If you’re looking for ways to give back this holiday season, consider creating “Blessing Bags” for the homeless. Also, check out these Random Act of Christmas Kindness ideas and free printables! More giving back ideas this way.

This will be our final post until Tuesday, 12/26, as my team and I are officially unplugging ourselves from the computer to spend 100% quality time with loved ones. ❤️

Before disconnecting, I just want to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for being such AMAZING readers! We are so blessed here at Hip2Save to have such a large community of readers who are generous, kind, supportive and so very inspiring. Thank you.

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas! 🎄

    Merry Christmas Hip2Save team! I spend every day with you and can truly say that you feel like family 🙂 I have followed you religiously all year and you made it possible that my family and our adopted Christmas angles had a fulfilled holiday season. Thank you for all you do not just the hard work in finding the best deal for us but more importantly the compassion you have shown towards the less fortunate. Your encourage post have made me a better more sharing and carrying person. I can’t put into words how much you accomplish with your platform. It goes way beyond saving money. May you all be blessed with health and inspiration for the coming years. Enjoy a great time with family and fiends and know that you will be missed 🙂

    I want to Thank you very much for all you do.
    Love your post reminding all of us that we really don’t know what the person standing next to us might be going through.
    I myself have been going through tough times that not many people know, in fact I was telling a co worker and she was shocked to hear the things I shared with her and she said I would’ve never known. She said you come to work happy, work hard and continue on with your day. .

    So please keep in mind you never know what’s going on in others life’s.

    God Bless & Merry Christmas to all!!
