Here’s what our Hip2Save team members have been up to when we’re off the clock.
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!
Whether it’s something we’re buying, something we did, or how our lives are ever-changing, we’re bringing you along for the journey with us!
We celebrated Valentine’s Day by making special memories.
Melinda and her hubby enjoyed a special date night at their church. ❤️ After an incredibly rough month losing her Dad, just 6 months after losing her Mom, they were able to enjoy a night to themselves.
One of the most memorable things from their night was receiving this book, Love Dare, which will carry into the next 40 days as they learn how to rekindle and love each other unconditionally in new, discovered ways.
Collin loved the book idea so much, she already ordered one for her and her husband and we just posted a deal for it since it’s currently on sale!
Erica tie-dyed some shirts with her kiddos for Valentine’s Day.
Our favorite tie-dyed kit is currently on sale on Amazon (under $17 shipped!) so it gave Erica and her kids a reason to get crafty! Don’t they just look adorable in their new shirts?! 😍
Hip Tip: Read more tips on this tie-dyed kit from our DIY gal Lina who also got crafty with this kit.
Lina’s new floors are complete and she’s getting things back in order.
We had high expectations of Lina’s new floors and we couldn’t be more in love! While they originally planned to be on vacation during the whole process, she and her family managed to get through this reno project seamlessly. In fact, they even repainted downstairs and added molding to the walls! It’s like they’re living in a completely new home! 😍
Flooring contractors can find Lina’s flooring HERE.
You may have already noticed, but Lina’s also been adding some new home decor to her recently renovated space too. She recently scooped up this faux fiddle leaf tree and a trendy boho planter which couldn’t look more perfect, just like her floors! 🤩
Hip Tip: Check out these 10 faux plants from Hobby Lobby that look totally real!
Emily has big plans for a space in her home too.
It must be something about the end of winter that has us all dreaming up amazing home projects, and Emily has also been tackling a few of her own. She just recently added this round mirror which she scored at Target for just $45 and even comes with a convenient kit for easy hanging. It inspired her to go big at home and redesign this section of her living room.
As you can see, we’ll have more to report back with soon regarding this home project! 🤩
I have my own project in the works for my daughter’s 6th birthday.
It may not look like much now, but these pieces of wood are going to be the biggest surprise of my daughter’s life come April! I scored this Playhouse Pottery Barn Bed on Facebook Marketplace in perfect condition for just $520 which would have cost me $2,435.88 brand new. 😳
After selling a few things of my own from around the house, I recouped $350 making this incredible score just a mere $170 – that’s a savings of $2,265.88! 🤣
Here’s what the bed will look like!
I’m still on cloud nine from this score and have it patiently stashed away in our basement until her birthday. I cannot wait to show you the finished product come April! 🥰
Hip Tip: I’ve put together so many more tips on how to maximize saving money around your home – especially for you new homeowners.
Jenna and her family adopted the sweetest new doggy.
Our Hip hearts are bursting this February with the new addition of Missy! Sadly, she came from a divorce where no one wanted her. 🥺 She also currently has a severe bladder infection, a double ear infection, is 23 pounds overweight, and still needs potty training at 5 years old. She also doesn’t know her name or how to walk on a leash so their family is essentially starting from scratch.
However, we know she couldn’t be with a more loving family now!
Jenna says Missy is the sweetest girl in the world and is so gentle with all their kiddos. Just look at that precious face! 🥰 Welcome to the Hip fam, Missy! ❤️
Gary’s making moves in the sticker industry.
As you can see, Gary is totally thrilled about his new stickers Angela scored on Sticker Mule where you can grab 10 for just $1. The deal is currently available and you don’t need a dog as cute as Gary to have a reason to score these custom stickers! 😉
Angela says these are so fun and really great quality!
Oh, and in case you were looking for an even better Gary update… we found out he has a sister. 😯 More on that later…
Shane scored an $88 roundtrip flight to Arizona.
With some flights being so cheap right now, Shane was able to score a roundtrip flight for under 100 bucks and do some exploring in Arizona! However, he did say that with a cheap flight comes extra costs, like paying to bring your luggage.
Regardless, he had an amazing time and we thoroughly enjoyed his awesome photos!
Be sure to check out our travel deals page for so many ways to save on your next vaca!
Something incredible came from Shane’s trip, too.
Shane knew our Hip sidekicks, Lina and Chelsey, lived in Arizona (which spans 390 miles at its widest point) so he thought what a great idea it’d be to ask for sightseeing recommendations on Slack (our business messaging platform)…
Come to find out, Lina and Chelsey discovered they not only live in the same state but are just a 5 MINUTE WALK from each other’s homes. 😱🤯
Ya just can’t make this stuff up! 🤣
We still can’t get over it and are living vicariously through their recent coffee meetup! Cheers, ladies! 😍
We didn’t forget about Stetson this month either…
While he’s not one to share much of his behind-the-scenes, he did want everyone to know he’s just out here, battling harsh winter weather trying to find you all the best deals. If you’ve ever wondered how he gets from one store to another…well, now you know. 🤣
On a serious note, if you really want to see what Stetson’s up to, follow us on Instagram where he makes regular appearances and even hosts his own Takeover Tuesdays! 🙌🏻
Well, Hip2Savers, on that note, we’re going to get back to bringing you all the hippest deals on the internet!
I’ll be back in March with some more fresh Hip news!
