We hope you’ll join Hip2Save on Instagram if you haven’t already!

Follow Hip2Save on Instagram for good vibes and good deals. ❤️

We love that Instagram makes it easy for our team to hop on stories and share unedited videos, whether it be a HOT deal, a product we’re loving or NOT loving, a lookalike, a money-saving tip, or maybe something more personal. We’re able to share so much video content there that we’re not able to on the site, so come join us! 🤗


Collin went all out this past month for our monthly giveaway boxes and upped it to FOUR winners.  

Every month, Collin historically gives away two HUGE boxes filled with stuff she loves, but to make things even more interesting, she gave away FOUR boxes! Winners from this past month’s haul scored an original Bogg Bag, canvas totes from Minted with real leather straps, limited edition Stanley mugs, Life in Lilac candles, the viral mini Kobalt toolboxes, mini Dash appliances, and other random surprises. 😱

You’ll definitely want to follow along ASAP to find out what she has up her sleeve for next month’s giveaway!

And speaking of giveaways, you may have heard Collin raving about her menstrual cup before. It’s something our whole team has been converting to and we may have got word about a giveaway coming soon. 😉 And there may or may not be a rap song that will go with it… 😆🤭


We have a Mystery Box highlight tab where our team sends Collin surprise packages to open.

Our team started a weekly tradition where we send Collin a totally random product and she opens and tests it live on Instagram! It’s fun to watch her reaction to these unexpected surprises and it’s such an authentic way to get her initial reaction to something that may be trending so we know if it’s really worth the money or not.

Let’s just say many of the products so far have been fails. 🤭

You can see past products by clicking our Mystery Box highlight tab or you can try viewing them at this link.


Collin reviews legit products you want to hear about too.

One thing about our Hip team is that we don’t sugarcoat anything and you can guarantee we never promote a product review on something we don’t truly love. You can find tons of product reviews over on our Instagram highlight tab called “Reviews”.

Recently, Collin shared her thoughts on a “detox and debloat” wellness product she’s seen multiple influencers rave about. She was honest to say she was pretty skeptical, so to give it the real test, she ate a sugar-free candy that notoriously gave her enough gas to fly. 😆 Needless to say, I think anyone dealing with bloating will be giving this product a try soon thanks to Collin’s honest review.

Head over to our Reviews highlight tab to watch and learn more!


Our team shares on-trend and budget-friendly wardrobe and home finds.

We LOVE a great find whether for our wardrobes or homes. Our team is always sharing their absolute favorites like the unique ice cube trays for your Stanley, our team’s favorite buys from Amazon, or even trendy $9 lamps!

You’ll want to follow us on Instagram if you plan to stock up your wardrobe with some tried and true staple pieces suitable for any budget. Plus, be sure to watch our “Outfits” highlight tab for tons more fashion inspiration.

Above is an adorable tank Collin scooped up on Amazon and it’s currently 20% OFF! Watch the video above or click this link to check it out!


Collin filled a generous Starbucks gift card for Mother’s Day, but it was unfortunately taken advantage of.

For a special Mother’s Day treat, Collin offered our readers on Instagram a code for a FREE Starbucks drink or treat. She put a cap on it, but it was a VERY generous amount so that lots of people could get a free treat.

This is something Collin actually does multiple times a year over on the Hip2Save Instagram, but as you can see, someone in Brooklyn took advantage by purchasing $172.05 worth of drinks, products, and gift cards all in one transaction. 😟 We were sad for those who missed out on the freebie because someone else decided to take a HUGE chunk of it, but we hope to continue on with this fun tradition if it feels good for her in the future.


Don’t miss our secret word every week as you’ll have a chance to win a FREE $50 Amazon gift card!

Every week, we host a weekly word giveaway! On Mondays, we’ll post what the secret word is and at the end of each week (typically on Thursdays or Fridays), you’ll have a chance to win a FREE $50 Amazon gift card! We give away TWO weekly! 🤩


We post content that may give you a laugh or two. 

If there’s one thing our whole team excels at, it’s keeping it honest and real with our followers. Plus, we love to post and share relatable content that makes all of us laugh and know we’re not alone. This video of Collin pranking her husband with fart spray was by far our favorite yet for 2024. 🤣 The funny tribute to her Mom on Mother’s Day was a close runner-up too. 😉

And, um, who looks this good too when getting the mail? 😆🙋🏼‍♀️


While we think you have so much to gain by following Hip2Save on Instagram, we ultimately just want to bring a smile to your face and make you laugh every day while bringing you all of the hottest deals, frugal tips, hacks, recipes, and much more!

We appreciate you all so much! ❤️

      SO glad to hear that! Thanks a bunch for the sweet comment!

  6. Em

    How do we know if the HipTeam is hiring? This would be my dream job!! 😁

  7. Kris10

    Is there any other way maybe Facebook! I am trying to limit my social media sites; time and focus on life😒😒😒. Do you do the same on your stories on facebook?

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yes, we do auto-share our stories to Facebook, so you can watch them there instead. 🤗 I just find that sometimes there are more glitches on FB stories.

    • AMFC4292

      I totally understand Kris. I have instagram and Facebook… sadly though on facebook you can’t answer their polls and see the results… so then I usually switch over to instagram so I can vote! 😉

  8. everest716

    Just got instagram for Hip2save

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yay! So happy you’re joining us on Instagram! Thank you. 🥰

  9. Jlinsey

    I wish I was better at Instagram 🤣. I go on it but don’t know what I’m doing. I give myself an A for effort but in reality it’s F.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Aww! I felt the same way at first too, Jlinsey. ❤️ I found a few accounts that I like to follow (like Hip2Save 😉) and just check their pages – or they pop up on my feed. Hoping you find it gets easier with time! 🤞 If you run into a snag, send us a message there and we’ll help you out! 🤗

    • AMFC4292

      Two main things to take note of on instagram is that the “stories” they are talking about being posted are on a horizontal row at the top of the screen and they expire 24 hours after posting…. Then you can scroll down to see other post and suggested stuff (basically like on facebook). Hope this helps a little so you can bring that F back up to an A! 😉

  10. Jan

    I follow you every way possible but don’t often go to Instagram 😏

    • Trish (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for following us on all our other platforms, Jan! 🤗 Hoping you might also enjoy the content we share over on Instagram if you decide to pop on there more often! 💞

  11. Christine

    Wishing her all the best in the new endeavor! Sad to see her go, but always exciting when it’s a new adventure 🙂

    • Erica (Silly Sidekick)

      Thank you so much, Christine! I am so sad too but very excited!

  12. Monique K Rizzo

    So sad to see her go but happy she is following her dreams!!
    Quick question- I have been a Hip2Saver since the very beginning, but just recently started following on Instagram. How do I sign up for the chance to win one of her awesome monthly boxes?? Thanks so much for ALL you ALL do!!

    • Erica (Silly Sidekick)

      Thank you so much, Monique! It means a lot! ❤️

      To win a box, you will need to tune into IG stories (especially towards the end of the month) where Collin will tell you exactly what you need to do to enter! Usually, it consists of liking various posts on our feed, maybe sharing with a friend, etc! Collin gathers various products for the monthly box giveaway and shows them off on stories all month long! It’s super fun! 🤩

  13. Yasuko J
