Hi! I’m Marybeth Hamilton and I created Baby Savers way back in 2008.
After 8 years of corporate ladder-climbing at both General Mills and Target Corporation, I quit working in the professional world and became a stay-at-home-mom to my two children. Best decision of my life.
When I have a few hours to spare, I try to spend quality time with our extended family and my close friends. I love reading, big Broadway musicals, Diet Coke, shopping and Starbucks lattes, and I'll take any of those in any order!
When I was pregnant with my first baby, I found out very quickly that, despite nearly everything I had heard and read, having a baby just wasn’t that expensive.
When I shared my realization with other moms, friends and relatives, nearly everyone said, “How can you say that?” and, “I don’t see how that’s possible!”
After finding that most people just didn’t believe me, I decided to start this site and share my knowledge and shopping expertise.
Over the years, this site has evolved into far more than a place to learn about saving money on baby stuff. BabySavers.com has become a resource that helps moms save the day with ideas, tips, advice and more!
Since Baby Savers encompasses time, money and life, you'll find a little bit of everything here. I thoroughly enjoy writing about Disney, food, DIY projects, travel, parenting and simply being a Minnesota mom blogger.
I've been featured in various online and print publications! You may have seen quotes from me in Woman's Day magazine or The New York Times.Some of my most popular articles have been pinned hundreds of thousands of times on Pinterest! I've listed some of my favorites below. Feel free to pin them, too!

I love social media, and I'm active on a variety of channels. Social media makes it very easy for anyone to keep up with this site and learn a little more about my family and me. Another huge perk to social media: it offers plenty of ways to get in touch!
