Many of you are checking items off your Christmas lists or treating yourself by taking advantage of this year’s Black Friday deals.

And as we close in on Thanksgiving, it’s no surprise that so many of you are taking advantage of all the grocery deals we see at this time of year. Now that the cost of food is steadily creeping higher, saving money on groceries feels more important than ever.

We even love to hear about what you’re not buying.

I actually told my family it was “no spend November” and it has been wonderful not buying stuff! There were too many Amazon deliveries, etc. coming to my house! It feels lighter not to buy so much stuff! – Michelle

WOW, Michelle – we are in awe of your willpower and salute you for choosing November as your no-spend month. With so many great deals leading up to the holidays, this would probably be the hardest time of year for most people to resist the urge to shop. Well done!! 👏👏👏

In the end, we came away with more hip, fun, and life-changing purchases than we could possibly share in this space, so be sure to head on over to Facebook to see what the other members of our online community have been buying!

Here are a few highlights from our Facebook discussion:

Amber bought her daughter an assortment of these hair claw clips

Claw-style hair clips are having a resurgence in popularity, and these particular clips come highly recommended by a few Hip2Save team members. They’re sold in a 12-pack of assorted colors and they hold even the thickest hair all day long! What an awesome and frugal stocking stuff idea, too!

shark ez self empty robot

Danyel bought the new self-emptying Shark EZ Robot Vacuum.

What we love about the Shark EZ Robot is that it automatically empties itself into the bagless base, which holds multiple sessions’ worth of dirt and debris so you can forget about vacuuming for weeks!

Danyel got this robot vacuum for the Black Friday price of $288 (regularly $499), and you can still pick one up for just $299!

Gingerbread Boy inflatable in box

Katie got this adorable Gingerbread Boy Inflatable.

Just bought this and I’m super excited to put it up. Would have never seen it if it wasn’t for y’all posting about them. Now that I’ve seen it blown up, I’m going back for more, it’s so stinking cute! – Katie

wearing a black Apple watch

Taryn splurged on the Apple Watch Series 7.

I bought myself an Apple Watch 7… budgeted for, of course. I didn’t get a ‘deal’ on mine. I haven’t really seen any and I’ve been looking since they came out with the 7. I splurged and got the cellular one, a band for $50, and the adapter thing to be able to charge it and my total with taxes and everything was $680. But it was an early Christmas gift to myself! – Taryn

Keurig K-Duo 12-Cup Coffee Maker and Single-Serve K-Cup Brewer

Carla got a deal on a new Keurig Duo.

The K-Duo Essentials Single Serve & Carafe Coffee Maker is the best of both worlds, using both K-Cup pods and ground coffee to make a cup or carafe of your favorite brew.

Carla scored a great deal on the Keurig Duo at Walmart, where it’s currently on Rollback for $79 (regularly $99)!

Lego corner garage

Lindsay bought a 2,569-piece LEGO set.

Finally decided to get the Lego Modular Corner Garage since it is being retired. – Lindsay

TCL 55 Roku Smart TV

Tracy snagged a new 55″ TV.

We just bought a new 55″ TCL 4K Roku Smart TV from Walmart. Our old one was one of the first flat-screens that came out and it had a small dark spot in the middle of it. It was time to be replaced. – Tracy

wooden leaf puzzle

Heather added some new Wentworth Wooden Puzzles to her collection.

I just picked up some more wooden puzzles from Wentworth. They’re such great quality and pretty challenging! I just finished this one last night. – Heather

These are beautiful puzzles and they look like such a FUN indoor activity for cozy evenings at home with the family. 💗

Turkey Butter Sculpture

Nancy bought a turkey butter sculpture for Thanksgiving.

These are such a fun and inexpensive way to add a touch of seasonal festivity to your Thanksgiving table! Look for them in-store at a Target near you for $3.49.

lost reindeer tags

Crystal found these lost reindeer tags on Etsy.

When children find this tag at their house on Christmas morning, they’ll know that Santa has been there with his reindeer! Then, they can keep the tag in a special place to bring them a little Christmas magic throughout the year.

set of toy dinosaurs

Kim bought these 12″ dinosaurs from Amazon.

Reader Kim ordered her dino-loving granddaughter a dino t-shirt and this 7-pack of 12″ dinosaurs on Amazon. What an awesome gift for a young dinosaur fan!

The stores are well-stocked with holiday inflatables at this time of year, so it’s a great time to buy one if you’re looking for the best selection! This 9.5′ Pre-Lit Giant Airblown Inflatable is sold at Home Depot if you’d like to grab one too. ⛄

Sonny’s little boy is getting a cool new racecar bed!

Tired of sharing with the kids, Heidi bought herself a new iPad!

I bought myself an iPad Mini 6!! I feel bad because I don’t normally buy big things for myself and I definitely don’t buy things like this before Christmas buuuut, mama is tired of sharing the big iPad with all the 3 kids! – Heidi

Hope you get to enjoy some uninterrupted screen time, Heidi. You deserve it! 😊

kids playing with Barbie RV

Jessica snagged a great deal on the Barbie 3-in-1 Dream Camper Playset.

I just scored the Barbie RV for $45 at Target with their Black Friday price. Plus I still had my coupon for 25% off any toy!!

That’s an awesome deal, Jessica (and great use of your 25% off coupon, too)! 🙌

Olga got her husband a Sam’s Club membership.

I bought a Sam’s club membership for my husband so he can save on diesel. – Olga

This is such a smart buy, Olga! Sam’s Club usually has gas priced at 10%-20% less than nearby gas stations, so you can save lots of money by fueling up there! Plus, score a HOT membership deal right now!

    I am so jealous of Audrey. My back has been angry with me for so long, but I just can’t afford a Sleep Number, not to bite the bullet for a chance that it would benefit me. Get some extra sleep for me.

    • Stacy F (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      My hubs and I bought one about 10 years ago and regret it so much. We went for the split king with adjustable base, and we’ve had issues from the beginning. Honestly, we tried to return it within the guaranteed time, but what they don’t tell you is that you have to pay for return shipping which was going to be big money. It’s been a while but I think it was over $1k which seemed insane. We decided to make it work. My husband has liked it, but I have hated every minute of it. My side always loses air to the point of me ending up in a virtual hole by the morning. I finally got it aired up to 65 and plugged it (instead of leaving it hooked up to the pump), and then I added a down alternative mattress topper. That finally did the trick for me! Anyway, it wasn’t a winner for me and it took a whole lot of money to figure that out, so just sharing my experience.

    Wow, the willpower to not buy anything in November! This month has been especially spendy for me since the black friday deals are starting earlier and earlier. On the plus side, I’m over halfway done with all my Christmas shopping and it’s not Thanksgiving yet.

    • kerRI
