We’re back with more exciting behind-the-scenes at Hip! 

We’re continuing our super fun off-the-clock Hip series and giving you all a sneak peek into our lives behind the scenes every month!

Each month, we share Hip deals our team has personally scored, something we’re doing, or something we’re currently reading! And as always, thanks for being here, Hipsters! ❤️

Here’s what our team has been up to in February:

Liz and her family chased the warm weather on their first Disney Cruise and already saved on their next one too.

Liz and her family just got back from their first cruise to the Bahamas after scoring a Hip deal for Buy 2, get 2 FREE Disney tickets! 😍 She said Disney’s Island Castaway Cay was beautiful and they really enjoyed the food, the shows, and her kids absolutely loved the kid’s clubs too! In fact, they had so much fun they already booked another trip for next year! 🤩

Going on a Disney Cruise soon? Here’s how Liz saved on her next family cruise!

Liz said before getting off the cruise you can book a placeholder! With a small deposit and you can save 10% OFF your next Disney cruise! She said this offer is only available while you are on the ship and you can get it by heading to guest services or by booking it directly through the onboard app! How cool!

Hip Tip: Keep an eye out for the latest Disney cruise deals by checking our rare Disney discount post!

Shane also chased warm weather and celebrated two special occasions.

Lucky for Shane, he also got away to soak up the sun. ☀️ Even better, he killed two birds with one stone by celebrating his sister’s 21st birthday and his fiance’s bachelorette party! 👏🏻 Looks like a fabulous time and they saved money by splitting their stay with a group of friends! Plus, we heard drinks are cheaper in Mexico too. 😏 Cheers to that! 🎉

I went skiing with my family and we saved money by staying with family and bringing our own groceries.

As for me and my family, we chased cold weather and went on one last snow trip before the end of winter! It was my daughter’s first time skiing and she really got the hang of it and lasted all day until sunset with us! 😱 Even more exciting, our oldest graduated to Black Diamond status which has me so impressed! 🤩 Luckily, my mom has a cabin close to the resort so we saved on an Airbnb. Plus, we saved time and money by bringing our own groceries and packing our food when we hit the slopes. Now, bring it on Spring! 😍

Melissa enjoyed a Mavericks basketball game with her family and saved money a couple different ways.

Melissa and her family had a blast getting out of the house and enjoying a Mavericks game this month! She said they saved money by pre-paying for parking and they ate before the game since stadium food is so expensive. How Hip! 🤩

Alli made a trip to Michigan to meet her newest niece.

There’s no savings or deal to share here – just a bunch of pure sweetness! 😍 How adorable are these three girls?! 😍 We’re so happy for Alli that she was able to make a trip to Michigan with her husband to meet the newest addition to their family. There’s nothing quite like those first few weeks of newborn bliss. 🥰 Congrats, Aunt Alli!

Here’s some super hot deals our team has scored this month:

Emily scored a great dupe for her home and already bought a second one.

Nathan James Argo Ceiling Light$73.28 (regularly $99.99)

Emily had her eye on this luxurious and super trendy light at Shades of Light, but would have never paid the cost! She stunned us all with this incredible knockoff she found on Amazon. While it wasn’t a Hip deal we can take credit for, we’re loving the $200 she saved and want one for our own homes! 😱 She loved the look so much, she already bought a second one! Can you even blame her?! 🤩

Lina grabbed some cozy, new pajamas during a Target sale we shared.

Since these pajamas have been a favorite of Collin’s for so long, Lina was quick to grab a new pair of pajamas when she saw the Target pajama sale we posted about! She says this set is so soft, comfy, and breathable. Even though the sale is over for now, it’s worth every penny at full price too. 🤩

Hip Tip: Speaking of Target, check out this Barefoot Dreams robe lookalike we love and it’ll save you $100!

Melinda said she heavily participated in Kohl’s 50% OFF clearance deals this month.

You likely saw the hot deals going on at Kohl’s if you’re a frequent Kohl’s shopper. In case you missed it though, our Hip sidekick, Rachel, shared tons of exciting Kohl’s clearance finds at her store that had many of us running to our stores (cough, couch, Melinda). 😅 Needless to say, Melinda loves her latest Kohl’s finds and is sporting her all-time favorite Kohl’s jacket deal she scored above to prove it. 👏🏻

Lucky for you, you can still snag plenty of clearance deals at Kohl’s like 50% OFF Easter decor and 70% OFF Christmas decor, or shop all the hot Kohl’s deals at once!

Alli grabbed a pair of our team’s favorite western boots while they were still available.

Ekk!! We love these boots and they were another incredible Kohl’s deal this month! You could have scored them for JUST $9.55 (regularly $44.99) 😱🔥 which was too irresistible NOT to scoop up so it’s not shocking Alli grabbed them while they were still in stock! 🤩 While the tan color is currently sold out, you can still grab them in brown (we heard they go perfectly with some flare jeans 😉). Or keep your eyes peeled on our post about these Western boots for the next in-stock notification!

Here’s a few books our team read this month:

Emily has been loving her latest Audible book and recommends it to anyone who loves intriguing facts.

Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell – $13.33+

Emily is always deep into a new audible so we love getting to share her recent recommendations! Lately, she’s been loving the Audible book Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell. Here’s what she had to say about it:

“After reading (and loving!) Blink by this same author, I purchased a few other books of his. While I’m only a short way in, Outliers is another favorite book recommended by my boyfriend. It dives into various studies that investigate (you guessed it) outliers in success stories. What’s fascinating is that nearly all the research yields results that make it clear that some people and situations were almost destined for success due to surrounding factors, making them now appear to not be outliers at all. If you’re a fan of intriguing facts and insightful storytelling, this is the book for you!” – Emily, Hip sidekick

Alli said she loves The Wife Upstairs because it was exciting and kept her engaged until the very end.

The Wife Upstairs by Rachel Hawkins$10.77+

You’re going to love this book if you’re a Jane Eyre fan. Here’s what Alli had to say about The Wife Upstairs book she finished this month:

“This is a modern retelling of Jane Eyre and it was SO GOOD! I’ve actually never read Jane Eyre, but I really want to now! The author did such a good job of keeping you engaged the whole time and on the edge of your seat as the events of the story unfolded. If you already know what happens in Jane Eyre, don’t worry, this book won’t bore you because it’s just different enough to keep you reading.” – Alli, Hip sidekick

Alli said this book was heartwrenching to read and long, but worth it.

What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty$9.99+ 

Grab this book if you love a book that plays on your emotions. While this is a longer read, Alli said it was totally worth it and she shared why:

“This one was a long one, but a good one! It tells the story of a woman who lost her memory and thinks it’s 10 years ago when she was pregnant and happily married – but in reality, she is anything but. It’s kind of frustrating and sad to see how her life got away from her, but it was so good to see her figure out how to be ‘Alice’ again!” – Alli, Hip sidekick

Alli also read this book recommendation from our other Hip sidekick, Kaitlyn, and it’s being made into a movie.

Our Hip sidekick Kaitlyn read this book a few months ago and highly recommends it! When Alli heard it was soon becoming a movie she knew she had to finish out The Hunger Games series first! Here’s what she had to say about it:

“This one was a super interesting read because he is not the same Coriolanus Snow that we know from the other books. The whole time I was asking myself, ‘Okay, when does he turn into this horrible, heartless human being?’ That’s what kept me going and I’m glad I did!” – Alli, Hip sidekick

Well, Hip2Savers, on that note, we’re going to get back to bringing you all the best deals.

We’ll bring back more exciting news to end this long winter next month! ❤️
