A B O U T


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. Be forewarned...  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 busy looking for deals, I work at a Dermatologist Office as a Licensed Aesthetician. I also run my small business, Pure BeautéThat is the reason why I do not post as often as other websites. BUT I will only post the BEST deals! :)


You'll 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.


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


As a new mom, you will find honest stories of my mothering journey as well as tips and inspirations of all things motherhood. I hope to inspire others with tips and stories to make motherhood more divine.
Thank you in advance for contacting me! :) It’s readers like you who inspire me to write and share on this blog. I also love collaborating with brands whose vision aligns with mine. 

I have an A.S in Biochemistry, and have worked as a Certified Medical Assistant for over 7 years. I currently work at a Dermatologist office as a Licensed Aesthetician with a strong interest in skin care. This blog, along with my growing social media channels, have reach over one million views and have over 500+ followers.
