throw pillow with welcome message

This throw pillow is for anyone who loves to entertain and get to bed at a decent hour. 🙌

Picked up this throw pillow at Big Lots today and I’m obsessed with it. It was only $15! – Alicia


I have the same one! Love Big Lots! – Lucy


I need one of these but imma need the time to say 6:30. My kids go to bed at 7:00 and I’m not about staying up too late. 34 going on 94. 😂Katy


holding a green bottle of hand soap

Lots of you have tried Kris Jenner’s new Safely line of personal care & cleaning products. 

I bought this hand soap at Walmart yesterday and I am LOVING it ($5.98). The reviews were good, so I took a chance. It smells SO GOOD and it doesn’t dry out my hands, which is a huge plus for me!!! I am going back for the lotion and possibly the glass cleaner! ❤️ Paige


I bought the hand lotion. It makes your hands feel so soft and smell so good. – Tara


This is great hand soap. The glass cleaner smells good. They also have laundry soap. – Janet


I love it too. And the laundry detergent smells AMAZING also!!!! – Kelly


The hand sanitizer is amazing compared to most. – Reva


Try the laundry soap! – Angela


My mother-in-law has this. It is AMAZING. – Deborah


I have this in the cleaner and love it. – Katie


It smells really good! Really clean – not perfume-y at all. – Crystal


I have the glass cleaner!! It smells so lovely. – Marie


everyplate box with food out

Debra has been sampling all the different meal kit delivery services!

For 3 weeks now, we’ve been testing out all of the meal planning delivery services. We’ve tried EveryPlate, Marley Spoon, Sunbasket, and Gobble is showing up today. It has been fun to see how everyone approaches this and the recipes. But the best part has been not having to think up what we’re having for dinner and whether we have the ingredients for it. It has really reduced my stress around cooking and how many bad food choices we make because I get tired of planning. – Debra


Monstera Plant in a white pot

Kaitlan welcomed a new plant baby into her family.

This basically 3ft tall Monstera I got from Walmart. Did I need it? No. But did I NEED it? Yes. It was the last one! I couldn’t leave it alone! – Kaitlan


Girl, same! I couldn’t resist her! I named mine Monica. – Julie


Up & Up Food Storage Bags Variety Pack

Some lucky readers were able to score one of these food storage bag assortments before they sold out.

YOUR suggestion!! Obsessed! – Devon


I just bought these too!! – Deb


I can’t find these online!!! I need these. – Keri


wildflower glass art display

Pamela is the proud owner of this stunning glass artwork.

This wildflower glass art is so much prettier than the picture! Cassey Scales makes them. She is so talented, and she does ship! – Pamela


Slackline swingset in backyard

This slackline swingset is genius for camping or as a swingset alternative for the backyard.

This slackline swing set was easy to set up and less than $100! It comes with everything you need. They do sell it on Amazon, but I found it at Dick’s Sporting Goods for much less. – Kristie


We have this too and we love it! We take it camping with us. It’s a big hit! – Dana


beige glass jar candle

Brittany’s whole family loves this Tea Tree and Spearmint Candle.

This candle is amazing! Smells like fresh air and easy breathing. It’s not overpowering at all. I forget I have it lit and I’m like, why does it smell so fresh in here? My kids love it too. They say it eases their sinus headaches. – Brittany


dog wearing a yellow raincoat

This canine raincoat is keeping Pam’s adorable pup dry.

I got this raincoat for my pup! It rained for three straight days here last weekend and I needed something to cover him when we go for walks. Oh he was not pleased… – Pam


holding a tube of sunscreen

Supergoop’s Unseen Sunscreen is living up to its hype among Hip2Save readers!

Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen! It’s super lightweight and feels like nothing. It’s matte, it doesn’t sting my eyes, it’s waterproof, and it’s great under makeup – the holy grail of facial sunscreen! It’s on Amazon and it’s also in Sephora’s Sun Safety Kit that Hip2Save posted (now sold out). – Laura


I always get mine from Sephora. They sell it single too, in large and small sizes. It’s great for all skin tones as it doesn’t leave any residue. – Erminda


Love this stuff! – Colleen


Seriously the best! Makes my makeup look flawless too! – Beth


Yes, the best! – Kay


dish drying rack over a sink

Wendy is loving her new Over-the-Sink Drying Rack.

My over-the-sink drying rack from Amazon. It holds over 100lbs, so it will hold pots and pans. We have so much more counter space now! – Wendy


I have one too and I love it!!! – Retta


holding a set of blue press on nails

Readers are really impressed with these press-on nails!

I’ve never used press-on nails and I was really impressed with how they looked and work. – Audree


You should definitely order some of the pedi ones!!!!! I swear by them! – Kara


I love those nails and got a pouch with all the colors! – Jessica


I love them! – Nikki
