Top 10 YouTube Videos Hip2Save

If you’ve been a Hip2Save reader for a while, you’ve likely seen our YouTube channel and the over 250 videos we’ve shared through the years. Since we’re celebrating Hip2Save’s 10th birthday, we thought it’d be fun to do a little reminiscing and share our TOP 10 most popular videos (as well as a few of our favorites)!

SO, grab some popcorn 🍿… and enjoy!

1. Hip2Save’s first video EVER! 😱

Walmart Couponing “Follow Me Monday”

This was my first ever YouTube video from 2009 where I ventured into Walmart to show you how to use those coupons to score great deals… as well as show off my math skills. 😉 Also, does anyone remember that red purse from Target that held my huge coupon binder?! Oh how I miss that bag. 😢

2. Hip2Save’s most VIEWED video

top 10 youtube videos – Ways to wear scarf Hip2Save

Can you believe this video from 2014 is currently the most viewed Hip2Save video with OVER one million views?! 😱 In this video, I shared five easy ways to wear a scarf – including The European Loop, The Pretzel, The DIY Infinity, and more!

3. The most FUN Hip2Save video to make 🤣

Target Big Red Ball Video

BIG Red Ball (Miley Cyrus – Wrecking Ball Parody)

If you’ve followed us over the years, you know that we LOVE April Fools Day… and Target! Which is why we had way too much fun making this “Big Red Ball” Music Video as part of the fun. 😂

“Ever since I was a little girl, I have dreamed of becoming a recording artist just like Cyndi Lauper. And today, my lifelong dream has come true (I am so emotional and am literally crying as I type this post). Over the last few months, I have been working around the clock to record my first album which is set to release on May 1st, 2016 – so be sure to mark your calendars!


Since I am never one to keep a surprise for long, I asked begged my talent manager/record label to let me release my very first single today for all you Hip2Save readers! So without further adieu, I would like to introduce my first single entitled “BIG Red Ball.” Hope you all enjoy it! Watch here.

6. Hip2Save’s tribute to a very special person


A Beautiful Life

In this video from 2015, I share special memories of my favorite person, Ma. ❤ She taught me to live life to the fullest, to laugh often, to dance whenever and wherever possible, and to never take any days for granted. Many of you have felt a connection to Ma from her presence here on Hip2Save.

She absolutely loved being a part of Hip2Save and raved about the Hip2Save community — you all brought her so much joy throughout the years with your kind and uplifting comments, emails, and messages. You can read more about her beautiful life here.

7. The most personal video for me to release

How Coupons Saved My Life…

How Coupons Saved My Life

Back in 2015, I shared a very personal video with you all. Truthfully, this was a video I actually filmed back in 2012. It’s my story about addiction, depression, and how those little things called coupons have done so much more than save me money.

8. Keeping it real with bloopers

Hip2Save bloopers

Coupons & Bloopers “Coffee with Collin”

Anyone remember the “Coffee with Collin” series? While I love chatting about coupons, I also cherish the funny times or bloopers that seem to happen so often when filming videos. Enjoy a few silly moments with my sister Bryn, my mom, my husband, my dad, and even Hip2Save readers! 😂

9. My attempt at a DIY video 😆

4 Quick & Easy Christmas Crafts!

In this video from 2013, I shared a few simple, quick, and easy Christmas craft ideas for the holidays. I must say that I’m so thankful we have Lina on board now, as I am sure not talented in this department! 😳

      Thanks a bunch for the sweet comment! It sure means a lot! 😉

  2. mckeeversmom

    Love the Tribute to Ma. I’ve got it saved in my Hip List and watch it frequently. I’m ever so grateful you shared her with all of us. She’s an inspiration. I hope when I grow up I can be like her!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Awww… your comment means so much. Thank you. ❤️

    The posts with “Ma” were always my favorites, she was such a wonderful part of this site. Thank you for sharing your wonderful grandma with us! <3

  4. Vickie Burns

    Collin, I hadn’t seen your very personal video before. Was having a rough day. Even though it made me cry some more, I appreciate so much that you shared.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      I sure appreciate the comment. ❤️

      • joy4lly

        Telling your story: I never even imagined this about your past Collin. If someone had asked me, you would have been the last person I would have thought of having this past. You seem so put together and outgoing and silly (my favorite part). Thanks so much for sharing this. All these years I’ve followed you and never seen this video. You don’t realize how much you have inspired people like myself that deal with depression on a daily basis and live vicariously through you. I always say, ” I wish I looked as great as Collin”, “Collin just has it all going her way”. I can’t relate to the addictions. But just watching you tell your story and how you have overcome so many things it makes me connect to you even more than just deals and coupons. You are a wonderful; very loved; smart; beautiful inside and out woman. Thanks!!!

  5. Pumpkin1

    I loved the videos so much I’ve been a YouTube sub of them since the beginning and always hope to one day see a new video up! You have such a positive and inspiring energy.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Aww, Thank you! 😉 Your kind words are truly appreciated!

  6. Angelica

  7. Suzi

    Thank you for re-sharing all of these wonderful videos. Over the years, I have loved them all, especially the ones with ‘Ma’. Thank you for all you do for the world of couponing, savings and, of course freebies.

      You are so very welcome. Thanks so much for the kind words.

  8. runnergirl838

    Bring back the videos – I love them! Enjoyed this trip down memory lane. 🙂 Ma was an absolute hoot!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      She was the best!! 🙌💃

  9. Tina

    I’ve been following your site for a few years now, but had not seen your personal video. I think you are so brave and honest to share your struggles.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Thank you SO much. That sure means a lot. 😘

    Hi, Collin!
    Thanks for including my “Walk the Aisles” video as one of your faves. What you may not know is winning your contest and the iMac gave me the motivation and resource to launch my own website ( which then led to TV savings segments, which then led to a career as a corporate trainer where I teach communications skills to executives. Thank you for all your hard work sharing great deals. Congrats on 10 years of awesomeness!!!

    • Christina

      This is amazing! Thank you for sharing your inspirational story.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Oh my… WOW!! Your comment means so very much to me. ❤️ That’s so awesome to hear, and so neat that you are now a corporate trainer. I am so blessed to have readers like you in my life. THANK YOU for sticking with us through the years, and for making such an AWESOME video! It puts a smile on my face every single time I watch it. 💃

  11. Christina

    Collin, it is amazing to see you fulfill your destiny. You will never realize how many lives you have impacted.

    If you had said to yourself, “I can’t start a blog. I’m not smart enough to blog. No one will read it, I am too busy with my three kids…” and all the other excuses we women give for not fulfilling our destiny, there would be hundreds of thousands of families who didn’t get the help they needed. Thank you so much for obeying your Call.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      THIS comment… thank you. ❤️ I am so incredibly blessed to have sooooo many amazing, supportive, and kind readers like you. Our community ROCKS, and your comment is so very appreciated.

    Colin, your video on How Coupons Saved Your Life was profound and inspirational. Thank you for your courage in being real and putting your true self out on social media, given all the potential for scrutiny and judgement. I admire the way in which you were able to transform your life and, in turn, make a difference for others. This is one more reason why I value this site and the women who manage it. Thank you again.
