HOME [noun]
A place where you are always welcome and surrounded by those who love you.

Home Sweet Home!

As many of you know, I am in the middle of renovating our 1950’s home here in Reno, NV – and, while inconvenient and messy at times, I just love the process! There’s something so awesome about taking an older, outdated house and turning it into a new, beautiful space that your family can enjoy for years to come.

If you’ve been following Hip2Save for a while, you likely know how much my husband and I love a good renovation project.

You may remember that when we moved to Boise back in 2012, we bought a tiny house for our family of five. We learned quickly that coming up with space-saving ideas was highly important. Thankfully, my house-flippin’ sister (at the time) helped us to design functional rooms with the limited space we had. I actually shared a video back in 2012 giving you a peek into our home with some tips on how we made the small space work.

Here are a few pics of our first home that we purchased in Boise. Lots of the furniture and shelving pieces were purchased from IKEA! They have so many affordable options that work well in small spaces.

On a side note, a few years later we sold our tiny house, and then moved into a much larger home (I also shared a couple of house tour videos – part 1 and part 2).

OK, enough home rambling as I am sure you’re wondering what the point of all of this is.

You see, it‘s not just about renovating a house on a budget or refreshing the décor with the latest bargains… it’s about creating a space that we can call home. Because there truly is no place like home. ❤️

With that said, I am so excited to finally share some exciting news with you! Eeek!

Our mission is to provide you with all the best home deals, home décor tips and tricks, styling advice, DIY projects, budget-friendly product recommendations, and much more – so you can truly love the space you’re in.

    This is such a great idea! Also, I wanted to do the house tour you have linked but it says it’s protected?

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Hi Kelli,

      Thanks for taking the time to comment! 🙂 Which house tour is giving you that error?

    • Kelli

      Hi Collin, The video that doesn’t work is under the bigger house tour video – Part 1. Part 2 works great but Part 1 says “Protected Blog – Log in”
      Thanks so much!

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

        Thanks for the heads up on that, Kelli! That link has been updated if you wanted to click back through!

  12. Jes

    Perfect timing, our new home will be complete in the next 8 weeks or so. We purged so much to move into a small rental while building. Also, we have expanded not only in house size, but in number of family members. I have a lot more room to decorate, but don’t want to break the bank in doing so! Especially with a toddler starting school in the fall and new baby!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Aww, How exciting! Congratulations on your new home and the new baby! ❤

  13. hipsaver2

    Awesome! Great addition.
