Mary Hoover Headshot for Mission: to Save

My name is Mary and I am on a mission, a mission to help you save! If you choose to accept and come on this journey with me, you will learn how to save more so you can do more living and give more freely.

Born and raised in Columbus, I am married to my high school sweetheart.  We have 3 kiddos, a Jr, and boy/girl twins (you will hear about my 4 fave people quite a bit on the blog!) I have been a bargain hunter for years and first got hooked by rewards programs (like MyPoints that I joined in 2000). In 2010, a friend and I decided to throw our hats into the world of savings blogging. I learned a lot from that first blog and thus found a new passion. My educational background is a BA in Theatre and a Masters in Social Work.  And ironically, frugal blogging is a fun way to mix these two seemingly unrelated interests. I am so excited for you to join me on “my Mission”!

On Mission: to Save, you will find grocery and drug store weekly match ups, printable coupon offers, Facebook freebie offers, details on rewards programs and much more. I will also be sharing tips for saving time, money and sanity as well as recipes and DIY project too!  You will see, I love to teach others how to save and encourage you to see how being frugal can help to stretch your donation dollars too.
