Hello! My name is Thao (pronounced: Tao).
It's a pleasure to meet you and welcome to the Saving Asian! :)

I started couponing (back in 2010) when an acquaintance showed me her stockpile. And I mean... HUGE! Couponing takes a lot of time & patience. There was a time when I gave up due to the amount of time it took to organize and plan my trips. Then I realized how much money I was losing so I jumped back on the band wagon. You just need to find a way that's easy for YOU. My family was in awe. My friends were like "Whaaaa?!" and that is how The Saving Asian was born (2011). The Saving Asian is also a lifestyle blog with authentic stories about enjoying life frugally in Orange County, CA.

When I'm not looking for deals, I work full-time at a Dermatologist Office as a Medical Aesthetician. That is the reason why I do not post as often as other websites. BUT I will only post the best deals! :)

On my free time I cosplay and attend comic conventions :) You should see my comic book collection. Oh, and I LOVE to play video games! <3

You'll also hear me mention Mr. Saving on my posts. That would be my husband, Zac!
It took only 10 years, but we finally got married on March 14, 2016 in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.

On February 3rd, 2018, we welcomed our daughter Everly, into the world.

As a new Mama, you will find honest stories of my mothering journey as well as tips and inspirations of all things motherhood. I hope to inspire mothers with valuable tips and honest stories to make motherhood relatable, authentic and beautiful.

I’m glad you’re here. It’s readers like you who keep me writing, and sharing in this blog.
