Here are a few highlights from our Facebook discussion:

set of pots and pans in kitchen

Our readers love the Ninja Foodi NeverStick cookware set.

Ninja pans!! Never spent more than $100 for a set of pans but it was more than worth it, best investment ever!! I could not be more impressed! I never realized how much of a difference pans could make. 😊 Krystal


Me too and I’m loving them. I waited until they were on sale at Kohls. I had a coupon and earned Kohl’s cash and rewards so it wasn’t too bad. – Carrie


They are the best. We debated about them and finally pulled the trigger. Love them!! – Kelly


pulling a towel from a towel warmer

Valerie scored a great deal on this towel warmer.

This towel warmer is amazing. I feel so pampered! It was a lightning deal from Amazon, so I got it for much cheaper. – Valerie


using batter dispenser to make pancakes on griddle

Amanda loves her new pancake & cupcake batter dispenser.

My pancake batter dispenser is pretty awesome! 🤩 I add mix-ins to the top of the pancake after I dispense the batter in the pan. – Amanda


old office chair next to one covered with a stretchy slipcover

Diana used a stretchy cover to breathe new life into her office chair.

This chair cover for my chair at work. Looks like a new chair without spending a ton of money!! I was shocked when I found it so cheap. Excellent quality too – Best money have I spent in a long time! – Diana


silicone cube tray used for freezing soup

These Souper Cubes are a genius idea for freezing portion-controlled meals.

My Souper Cubes freezer trays. They are like giant silicone ice cube trays. They have a metal frame so they are stable. You can bake in them or freeze in them. Easy to pop out the frozen food, and then things store really well because they are in nice, neat bricks. If you have Instagram, give them a follow to see how people are using them. I got the one-cup trays and I am going to order the cookie dough trays. – Laurie

As the name implies, these are great for freezing soup and reheating later!


unboxing a Shark hair dryer

The Shark HyperAir IQ Hair Dryer is giving Dyson a run for their money!

The shark hairdryer. It dries my hair so much faster! I was hesitant to buy it but it’s worth every penny. – Sheryl


Me too! My hair took forever to dry before. Try it! I didn’t want to spend the dollars, but it has been worth it. – Tammy


Yes!!!! Love mine 😉 – Angie


9 arms making fists and wearing bracelets

Zox Bracelets are popular with readers of all ages.

Zox bracelets. They have inspirational quotes on them and they have new releases weekly. They are so addictive! They also have monthly subscriptions and feel-good packs. – Adrianne


Love them! I have a few. – Lisa


Never heard of them, but checked them out & OMG – how awesome are those?! Got some for my kiddos. 💕 Thanks for sharing! – Sarah


holding Mac Stack mascara

Readers love this splurge-worthy Macstack Mascara.

Hands down my favorite mascara EVER. It works sooooo good for me! – Sara


I have it and love it as well – Kristina


I’ve always bought drugstore brands until this came out. I love it! – Marisol


bird sitting on a bird feeder tray

We’re heading into peak season for backyard birdfeeders!

Simple as it sounds, a bird feeder. We’ve seen finches, doves, robins, blackbirds, chipmunks, and squirrels visit our feeder so far. 😊 I have two rowdy boys (ages 2 and 4) and it’s nice to see them pause and watch the wildlife. – Aimee


I love my bird feeder. I had a morning dove for the first time today. – Lee


Same! Got one for my kids as well and we love it! – Brittany


 Yaaas!! Us too!! – Becky


shaking sand from a yellow and white beach towel

Tammy’s new Sand Cloud Beach Towels have us excited for summer!

Sand Cloud is often touted as the world’s best beach towel, and fans of this company definitely seem to agree! Made from sand-resistant, ultra-absorbent, sustainable Turkish cotton, these towels sound like the perfect companion for a day at the beach.

My Sand Cloud beach towels! 😍 The sand literally falls off of them. So easy, no sand comes in the house, and they’re also cute!Tammy


Dawn EZ Squeeze Platinum Cleaner Refreshing Rain 12.2oz

When it comes to happiness in the kitchen, sometimes it’s the little things… like Dawn Platinum EZ-Squeeze.

As odd as it may sound, the new Dawn Platinum Easy Squeeze bottle!!! ❤ ❤ Now you don’t have to flip the cap open to use the bottle or have to use another container to get the last bit out! Saw it on YouTube recently and it jumped in my cart the second the commercial was over. It’s refillable, too! Dawn has always been good at having its containers be refillable. – Stephanie


 I just bought it today… love it! – Kim


I came here to write the same thing! It’s awesome! – Kasey


I just bought that too….and love it! – Roxanne


I bought this too! LOVE it!!!! – Cynthia


Ninja Specialty Coffee Maker

Many of our readers have discovered that they prefer Ninja over Keurig!

My Ninja coffee system and Cuisinart grinder… Coffee is so much better than with the Keurig! – Laura


Yes! We just got a dual brew and I love that we can do a full pot or individual! – Paige


 Same thing- tossed that Keurig right out & fresh grind my coffee now – so much better! – Christine


I agree! Just swapped from Keurig and am so glad we did! – Lauren


 I agree. It’s great coffee every time! – Michelle


cookie dough on SilPat baking mat

Every kitchen should have these easy-to-clean and easy-to-store Silpat baking mats.

My Silpat baking mats. No more washing cookie sheets or toaster oven pans! – Dee Dee


I love these too! – Renee


making a bed with a Quick Zip fitted sheet

Quick-Zip sheets are a brilliant solution for anyone who hates to wrestle with their fitted sheet!

I bought a Quick Zip bottom sheet. Life changed! You just have to zip off the top part that you sleep on, wash it, and zip it back on. It takes maybe 30 seconds to put our bottom sheet on our king-size bed now. This is WAY more than I would normally pay for just a bottom sheet. They are pricey, but after having them since August, I can say without a doubt it’s worth it! Also, they are very good quality. It’s not something where it’s cheap material but the markup is for the convenience factor. One of us can get the sheets out of the dryer and have our king bed made in a matter of minutes. Works well when you wash sheets on Saturday and then completely forget they are in the dryer until you are ready for bed! 😬Amber

    Thanks for this post. I have the pancake dispenser and somehow didn’t think to use it for cupcakes. I will now also haunt the Amazon outlet and warehouse for the zip sheets at a lower price. Love Hip2Save!
