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 There’s something so awesome about taking an older, outdated house and turning it into a new, beautiful space that your family can enjoy for years to come.

Collin's kitchen remodel in progress

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! 

Over the past year, our team has been working hard behind the scenes to build a brand new website (our third! 🤩) that I am SO passionate about… Hip2BeHome.com, our NEW home website!

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.

We couldn’t be more excited to share it with you… so, come on over and check it out! 😍

    So excited for this!!!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yay! SO glad to hear that! Thanks for the kind comment!

  2. GisMom

    The site is wonderful! Thanks for taking on so much to help us save money through hip2save and decorate with the new site! Can’t wait for even more articles and decorating tips!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Aww, you are SO very welcome! Thanks a bunch for taking the time to comment! We sure appreciate YOU!

  3. AshleyBeth

    Congrats on your third website! So excited to check it out!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Awesome! Thanks SO much, AshleyBeth! ❤

  4. S

    Is there an app for hip2behome?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Not at the moment, however that may be available in the future!

  5. Lisa

    Great!! Will there be an app for this?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Lisa! Great question! That may be something available in the future!

  6. Whitney

    YES!! So excited for this. We just went from 1400 square feet to 3800 and I don’t want to break the bank while getting things for my new home. We have more wiggle room in our budget these days, but I still am frugal at heart! I’m 33 on Thursday and have been following you since becoming a stay at home mom at 23! I’ve gone to many sites to help save money but have always stuck with yours! It’s the best! And I miss you seeing you in videos, Ma! Love you guys and appreciate you so much!! Collin, you remind me of myself because I’m also goofy and crazy. Anyway, enough rambling! Just wanted to show my appreciation for a minute!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Aww, congrats on your new home, Whitney! Thanks a TON for the kind words and for being a longtime reader! It sure means a lot! 💕

  7. Jill W

    I am very excited and the timing is perfect for me!! We are moving into a new home in another state next week (our 3rd move in 12 years with 4 kids!) I have been a Hip2Save groupie since almost the beginning – I have followed other sites but lose interest- not Hip2Save because you keep it fresh- thanks 🙂

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Hi Jill!

      Good luck with your BIG move! And thank you so much for sticking with us through the years. ❤️

  8. CJJ

    LOVE IT!!!!

  9. ecroston

    The new site looks great – congrats! I’m hoping this is the year when I have the time & money to renovate my house. My question is – will deals be cross-posted between the two sites or will I need to start stalking both sites to make sure I don’t miss anything?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for the kind words about our new site – we are all super excited!

      Any awesome home deals will definitely be posted on Hip2Save.com (just like normal – nothing is changing there!). Our plan is to also post many of the same home deals on Hip2BeHome.com but with a twist – so we will call out the same sale on Hip2BeHome BUT we will find new items to highlight that may be specific to a certain design style, budget or just a new product that we think will be fun to call out.

      I hope this new site will be super helpful to you as you renovate your house this year!

  10. atank

    Congrats Collin and Team this is super exciting and I cannot wait to glean all of the awesomeness from the new site.

I am looking forward to seeing what is affordable,modern and fresh. If you’re interested in a place to start from scratch come on this way…CA.Thanks Hip2save.

  26. Coby

    This is perfect timing.. we are selling our house and moving to a new house too and feeling overwhelmed.. we are downsizing too from a 4br to a 3br so I would love to browse ideas.. I’ve always loved Hip2Save.. I’d love a hip2home app

  27. JenB

    Very cool! I could use some decorating tips, especially for a small space.

  28. Kelly

    I got the email last week about the new site and have been in LOVE with it !!! I’ve been sharing it with everyone!! I’m a HUGE Hip2save Fan and Hip2behome is just as amazing!!!!!!! Thank you so much for all you do to make these sites SOOOOOOOO fun to browse!!!! 🙂

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Awwww… so HAPPY to hear that! Thank you so much for sharing the site with others! 🤗

  29. Denise

    Hip2Save just gets better and better! We sure appreciate y’all!!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Thank you Denise!! BEST READERS EVER! 🥰

  30. Julie

    Very cool!
    BTW, I love the kitchen island in the 5th pic down, where is it from? I just bought an island, but like this one a little better…

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Hi Julie! I think you are referring to the kitchen island pictured in my small home in Boise. If so, that was purchased at IKEA years back, but I’m thinkin’ they probably still sell something similar. Hope that helps! 🙌

      • Julie

        Thank you! Yes, it was in the Boise house.

        I looked everywhere for my island…. finally bought one from a homeowner locally who was downsizing. Craigslist and FB Marketplace were good resources and saved money.

        So looking forward to perusing the new site! ~ Julie

  31. candym

    Wow, I am so excited to see this. We had recently downsized to small townhouse. I’m at loss for ideas since we came from a house! This is just amazing!!!!!! Thank You Collin!!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yay!! So happy to hear that! Thanks for taking the time to comment. 🤗

  32. Amy

    😍 I’m in love, it’s like Pinterest and hip2save had a baby lol, I can’t wait, I love to decorate but never have any money, just what I need in my life!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      WooHoo! 😍 🤗 🙌

    Congratulation on the new site.

    Please make sure to add post on eco friendly items on all sites. Plastics are really ruining the world. I know this is a coupon and deals site but the amount of “cheap” items that are plastic is crazy! That being said, congrats on the new site and finished home.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Thanks for the feedback and support! 🙂
