Please take a few minutes to read my disclosure policy, and how it pertains to you. Thank you!
In my own words:
If you’ve been following my blog for a while now you can probably guess that blogging takes up a lot of my “free time” – as if any moms have such a thing. I began this blog to help people learn how to save money on their groceries and household goods, including many natural and organic products. As you have probably noticed by now, when I find a way to save and/or live a healthier lifestyle I post these things. I do not claim to be a professional expert in finances or health.
Along the way I discovered that I could also make some money through blogging, and that this could help to compensate me for my time spent sharing deals with you, as well as help cover the costs involved with running a blog. I don’t plan to get rich through this, but I spend many hours every week sharing things with you, and hopefully you will agree that my time is valuable. There are costs involved with web hosting, and eventually I hope to pay for design services to improve the look and user-friendliness of this blog.
From time to time there may be posts that contain affiliate links. These links will allow me to earn a little bit of money if you click on, buy or print something, etc. If it will save you money and/or help you live a more organic and healthy lifestyle, I will post it. Please know that I also post plenty of worthwhile coupons and offers that do not provide me any compensation whatsoever.
As opportunities allow, Cilla’s Deals will also feature banner advertisements, product reviews and sponsored posts. Reviews and sponsored posts will be clearly identified, and I will always give you my honest opinion about these products and services.
As a side note, if you follow other blogs, they typically have affiliate links and disclosure policies too. Some policies are easy to find and others are very hidden. I wanted to have a page specifically about this, so that you know I’m not trying to hide anything.
Now that I’ve explained my disclosure policy in my own words…
