Disclosure-Terms Of Use

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my Disclosure Policy here to learn more.

One of the main ways I earn money through Food Storage Moms is through advertising. However, beyond this, I do sometimes generate income in some of the following ways.

Affiliate Disclosure

The products I review are either purchased by me or provided by a company/sponsor in return for an honest, sound review of said product. I do my best to give you honest and sound feedback about said product, and whether it is something that I recommend. I will never recommend a product to you that I would not use for my family. I may receive compensation in the way of free product or advertising income for a review of an item that I did not purchase myself, and I will let you know that beforehand. I also may receive benefit from a referral link to a product that I recommend, which may have been purchased by me, or may be part of a sponsored advertisement on the site. In either case, it is something that you will know beforehand.

My opinions are my own, never that of an advertiser. If I am provided information to further explain how a product works, I may include that copy in my review, but the actual review of said product will be fully my own.

Affiliate Links

I have an affiliate relationship with various companies and brands. As an affiliate, I receive a small commission if you choose to purchase a product or service from one of my affiliate links. You do not incur any additional costs by purchasing through one of my links. I will occasionally include affiliate links where relevant throughout the content.

All posts will include a notice at the top disclosing that the post may contain an affiliate link. The notice includes a link to this very page (it’s likely how you landed here!) so you can learn more about affiliate links and how they affect you as a reader.

Sponsored Content

I occasionally post sponsored content for which I am paid a fee in order to write a post highlighting a particular product, event or service on behalf of a brand. The posts are written by me and include my honest thoughts, opinions, and ideas. I only accept a small portion of the sponsored post opportunities that I am presented with, as the vast majority are not a good fit for you, me, or this blog.

If a post is sponsored, it will be clearly noted in the post.
