Shane and his Dad are already crushing New Year’s goals in November.

Like father, like son. Shane has been showing support for his dad at the gym ever since he got his first gym membership! There’s nothing like having a great gym buddy to crush your goals with and it’s never too late to start, am I right?! 👏🏻🤩 Way to go Shane’s Dad! 

Hip Tip: Here are some apps that will actually pay YOU to work out and some incredible Lululemon dupes if you like to hit the gym in style.

Shane also announced even bigger news…

Shane played a small role as a bartender in a Hallmark Christmas movie, and now A Match Made at Christmas is available for your viewing over on Amazon. 👏🏻 If you spot Shane, you’ll have to tag us on Instagram and let us know! 😆

Hip Tip: Here are the best Hallmark Christmas movies to watch in 2021 (besides Shane’s, of course). 😉


Evan & Shane both shared beautiful pictures of all the Fall colors.

One thing’s for sure, we are all suckers for some gorgeous fall colors so when Evan and Shane shared some recent photographs it had us wanting to book a trip to visit ASAP! 😍

Above is a gorgeous shot from North Carolina that Evan took from his hike.

And here’s one of my favorites that Shane took in North Idaho. WOW! They really captured the gorgeous vibrancy of Fall, didn’t they?! 😍


Lina’s mother-in-law went thrifting and found this vintage mixing bowl for a steal.

We love when our savvy Hip2Save-ness rubs off on family members. 👏🏻 Lina’s mother-in-law scored her this awesome find for just 3 bucks! Even cooler, she found the exact same thing on eBay going for $42 more. We can’t wait to see what deliciousness she whips up next. 😍

Hip Tip: A ex-Goodwill employee shared how you can save the most at thrift stores when shopping.


Stacy was thrifty in her own way and scored an awesome deal on a new Samsung Frame TV.

It’s no secret our whole team is in love with the seriously aesthetically pleasing Samsung Frame TV! The options for art displays are endless and it looks so stunning everywhere (including over your fireplace).

Collin, Lina, myself, and now Stacy all have one and love it! 👏🏻

Stacy scooped hers up while it was 30% off, and lucky for you they’re still on sale over at Best Buy! So many Black Friday sales have already started so make sure you’re staying in the loop on the hottest Black Friday deals HERE!


Remember Angela’s dog Gary? He’s still at it…

broken door frame and chewed up bookbag on floor

Man, oh man, does Gary know how to make an impression or what?! After chewing his way out of his crate again and eating NINETY hemp dog calming treats while Angela was at a football game, Gary really showed what he’s capable of by ripping apart Angela’s door frame and chewing up her daughter’s backpack. 😳 Angela: 0, Gary: 100. 

Angela at least had some good times while she was out of the house.

Despite the fact it’s bittersweet, Angela enjoyed her daughter’s last night of color guard with her school’s marching band as a senior. 😢 On the bright side, she will be doing winter guard next before the end of her high school career. Life goes so fast, doesn’t it?! 😭 We’re wishing her daughter the very best in her future endeavors!


Jenna shared her favorite spot in her new home so far.

You’d likely never guess it, but Jenna just moved into her gorgeous new dream home and it already looks loved & lived in! 😍 She recently shared her finished entryway featuring gallery walls with MixTiles.

Now back to unpacking, breaking down boxes, building furniture, breaking down more boxes… and so on. 😂


Lina shared a very special local memorial on Veteran’s Day.

Lina made it to a very special memorial on Veteran’s Day. Each pillar represents a branch of the military and each year on 11/11 at 11:11 AM the sun shines through perfectly to light up the seal on the ground.

While Lina says she has yet to make it here right on time to witness the 11:11 phenomenon, this was just too cool not to share! A true masterpiece & a wonderful tribute to our Veterans. ❤️

Thank you to all our veterans for your service! 🇺🇸


Stetson is enjoying his home scents, maybe a little too much.

There’s really no such thing as too many candles…especially as far as Stetson’s concerned. 😂 A man after all our candle-loving hearts! Stetson seriously shocked us all when he shared his impressive haul from a recent Bath and Body Works sale. 🤩 It’s true you can never be too prepared.

  6. Christi + S

    Love this post, such a great way to show us the team!

  7. Michelle

    I gotta know, what kind of dog is Gary? I’d put money on Husky πŸ˜‚ whatever he is, it’s about time for some dog-shaming pics of him, or at least a pic of his “angelic” face to pair with the destruction pic, lol.

    • Angela (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Michelle! My Gare Bear is a perfect pup – minus his separation anxiety which leads to a little destruction, but we are working on that. He’s a rescue so I’m not 100% certain on what breed he is, but the shelter thinks he’s about 3 years old and a boxer, lab, and something mix. I’m sure at some point I’ll cave and do the doggie DNA test to find out! You can see his sweet face in our post here: https://hip2save.com/tips/whats-happening-at-hip-in-october/

      • Michelle

        Aww, he’s so handsome! What a sweetie!! Post more sweet pics with his destructo pics in the future! Love me some puppers!! I have a rescue I need to do a dna test on, she maxed out at 35ish lbs but looks like a black lab πŸ˜‚ if you find any good deals, be sure to share them on here!

        • Angela (Hip Sidekick)

          I sure will! Thank you Michelle! He’s a handful for sure but he really is a great pup and we love him lots.β™₯️

  8. Rebecca

    Love these posts! Beautiful memorial that Lina went to see…as a military wife with veterans in the family, that day hits hard. ❀️ And Angela, bless you for having the patience for an active dog! πŸ˜‚ I have a 6lb pup who is so gentle on all her toys, she still has every one she’s ever gotten…and she’s 7 nowπŸ˜‚.

    • Angela (Hip Sidekick)

      Aww thank you Rebecca! I’ve clearly learned with him that I can ONLY buy the toughest Kong toys for him. Everything else is gone in 60 seconds! πŸ˜‚πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
