Disclosure: How this blog makes money


Contact me, Kacie, at ( sensetosave AT gmail.com)

I want it to be clear how this blog earns money.

  • I now accept a limited number of sponsored/paid guest posts or paid insertions.
  • I make the bulk of my blog income from ad space in my site’s sidebars. They are listed under “site partners” and “resources.” Some are paid placements, others are affiliate links where I might earn a commission for clicking a link or clicking through and signing up or buying a product.
  • The banner buttons you see in the sidebars are either advertisements or affiliate. I’m referring to affiliate links/ads as something that could pay me a commission IF you click on it/or IF you click on it and then purchase something. Don’t click on a link just to help me out — click on a link if you’re genuinely interested.
  • Sometimes I link to items on Amazon. If you see a link on this site that points to Amazon, you can assume it is my affiliate link. I try to point these out within each post, but I’m stating so here too in case some slip.
  • I participate in other sites’ affiliate programs too, such as Ebates, Swagbucks, etc.
  • Sometimes I link to other blogger’s ebooks or wares. If I do, I will use my affiliate link if there’s one available.
  • If you’d ever like to purchase an item WITHOUT using my affiliate link, simply open up a new browser window and search Google for the product, and then purchase. Don’t click on my affiliate link first. If you already have, clear your browser’s cache.

I don’t run my blog for the money. However, the money this blog does generate is greatly appreciated by me and my family. It has helped us achieve some of our financial goals. THANK YOU for your support!

I am not a financial expert. I have no fancy letters after my name or formal financial training. I just have opinions and experiences that have gotten me where I am, and I hope that I can share ideas that will help you improve your own financial situation.

As such, please take my ideas and apply them to your life if you think they’ll help — but ignore or modify the ideas that won’t. If you’re contemplating a big financial change, say, adjustments to your investment accounts, then please research it well beyond my site. Consult a true professional. Et cetera.

You’re smart and I know you know this stuff. I’m just posting it here, too.

Hey! I'm Kacie, wife and mother of 3. I write about my family's finance: how we save money, improve our spending, and plan for the future.

I hope I can inspire and encourage you to improve your situation. See disclosure.

I'm adopting a much slower-paced posting schedule, and treating this as a hobby blog now.

Keep in Touch!
