Here are my fave Target, Walgreens, & Etsy shopping deals, coupons, & freebies on candy, makeup, boots, & more for the week of 10/17/2018

Can you believe that it has been over a year since I’ve published a YouTube video? ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Crazy how time flies! The busyness of kids home this past summer and the big move to Reno definitely made me slow down quite a bit. With that said, I’m definitely happy to be back in action and can’t wait to start regularly sharing some of my favorite weekly deals with you all! ๐Ÿ™Œ

This week I’m sharing SEVEN of my fave deals on Halloween candy, cosmetics, boots, and more! I’m also keeping it real as you’ll notice I’ve got some clutter going on in the background (our renovation is getting underway here very soon!)…


Watch the video, and then check out the details on my favorite deals below… Enjoy!ย

    Dear the most energetic, honest, cute, and overall fab host ever! I have been a Hipster for 4 1/2 years, maybe more. Collin, your store escapades with your Starbucks first were my LIFE! In fact, I have lost my mojo for couponing now. I do still check Hip2Save every day for surprise bargains for house and electronics, photo, etc. Before I even look for something on sale at stores, I put it into the search and usually there is a deal post about that item. If it’s expired, it doesn’t matter to me. It matters that the staff has done the legwork for all of us. And I DO NOT even look in my coupon bag until after searching coupons. It’s almost Black Friday again, and that’s when Hip2Save is on refresh! I appreciated Collin’s share of her health and addiction issues. 10 years ago talking about addiction meant shaming, that was only for celebrities and low lives. But addiction is really a human problem. I am addicted to food. So let’s stop shaming and looking down our noses at each other and educated ourselves. Extend the hand of love without judgment. Again, we all have our personal issues. Be the person your dog thinks you are! <3

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      BIG hugs! Thanks for taking the time to comment, I sure appreciate your openness.

  19. Simian35

    Hello and welcome back and Welcome to Reno. I live here as well. ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Mel

    So so glad to see you back Collin!! My family has had a lot going on lately and I completely missed the Reno post. I donโ€™t know how you juggle everything (figuratively and literally!), but we sure are lucky to have you here! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Aww, thanks a ton for the super sweet comment, Mel! We sure are lucky to have YOU as a reader! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  21. Brindha

    Awesome to see you again Collin! U inspired me to go to Target yesterday…my store is renovated recently looks awesome, and i notice a lot of items everyday prices have come down…for example butter was 2.59 before cartwheel of 5% whereas sale price in other stores were 3$. i was disappointed my store didn’t have the dove deal u mentioned but found the covergirl mascara to be 4.59…Thanks to your team i checked whether it was included in the online list and checked out. got the gc but strangely the coupon took off only 19 cents instead of 2$ but the cashier overrode it and gave me the discount manually. so i ended up with mascara for 9 cents each.. was super excited ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks to You and Your Crew…Love u all!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yay! Thanks a bunch for the sweet comment and for sharing your shopping trip with us! You are SO very welcome! Happy you were able to grab the savings in your store!
