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! 😱
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
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 🤣
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.
4. Hip2Save’s most HEARTFELT video ❤
Couponing isn’t just about saving money and scoring deals. In this heartfelt video from 2013, I shared a collection of moments where Hip2Save has given back over the years — big and small. ❤
5. Hip2Save’s most clever video
In 2012, I had just moved to Boise, ID and was forced to find creative ways to decorate a small 1,200 square foot house for our family of five! In this video, I shared several frugal tips on how to make the most of your space in a small home.
6. Hip2Save’s tribute to a very special person
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
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
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 😆
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! 😳
10. The funniest video featuring my favorite people
This Target coupon shopping video from 2014 was so fun! My dad and Ma came along with me to score some awesome coupon deals, and my dad even dished on a sweet Playtex tampons deal! 🤣
Be sure to watch Part 2 of our shopping adventures in Target with my dad and Ma!
