Hi! I’m Heather Schisler the founder of PassionForSavings.com! I am so incredibly blessed to have been married to my husband Jonathan for almost 10 years. I’m the busy work at home mom to my Son Zachary who is 7 and Hailey who is 5 and our precious little guy Madden who is 2.
I am a coffee loving, frugal fashionista with a passion to teach others how to save money and live well on a budget. 4 Years ago my husband and I became debt free and my passion is to teach others to do the same! I hope you’ll join me on a daily basis as I post the best online deals and in store deals available to help you manage your budget and live better on less!
I first started using coupons in 2008 when my first Son was born, I had quit my job to stay at home with him and we had gone from 2 incomes to 1, at the same time inflation was happening on just about everything and we were in the middle of a financial crisis in our country. I used to joke that every time I went to the grocery store the prices had doubled, in reality it wasn’t much of a joke, prices on everything from bread to gas was going up each and every week.
My husband and I finally had the dreaded “Money Meeting” Where we determined that our income wasn’t covering all of our expenses and we knew we had to re-work our budget to make things work if I was going to continue to stay at home with my son. As my husband went through the options I remember him suggesting that we move our Clothing Fund into our Grocery Budget…. STOP right there! That was my wake up call, I knew that I had to be more intentional with my money, that I could do something, that I could make better choices and that’s when I decided to start using coupons, to look for ways to be creative with my money so that I could afford not only the things we needed, but the things I wanted as well.
I’m a firm believer that Saving Money is about more than using coupons. Yes, I often claim a few extreme couponing tendencies but for me saving money is about being in control of my money and being able to afford not just what my family needs but a few of those things we want as well. I love saving money on everything from Toothpaste to Designer Jeans so I hope to find and post something for everyone regardless of where you are on your money saving journey!
