Mommysavers.com was conceived in early 2000 while its founder, Kimberly Danger, was home on maternity leave after having her daughter. “Staying home was new to me, and I found myself with tons of creative energy, but very little money. I had just created a personal web page to share baby photos with friends and family — and loved doing it! At the same time, I was researching ways to save money after giving up my full-time job. I found a lot of great tips and suggestions for parents to save money, earn extra money, find great bargains and live on one income. However, I didn’t find them all the same place. I wanted to create a website like the one I had looked for. So, I set out to build a website with tips and bargains finds in one easy location.”
Mommysavers started with an online discussions board, then grew to a collection of tips in a full-fledged website. As the site grew, Kim was approached in 2005 to write a book with her tips, and 1000 Best Baby Bargains was published.
