I hate anything that feels remotely sales-y, and I promise (cross my heart,) to never ever recommend anything here that our family doesn’t use and love ourselves, and that I wouldn’t rave about to my homeschool co-op or to my sister.
That said, affiliate marketing programs can be a way for blogs to receive a little (teeny-tiny, usually,) commission when products are purchased through their links. This does not change the price for you, and again, I only will recommend things I think are awesome.
I participant in several affiliate programs including the the Amazon associates program. What that means is when you click on any of my affiliate links and buy something (and that can be anything at all,) I will receive a small percentage of the sale- which I will use to help support this site.
So don’t go buying a bunch of stuff you don’t want, friends, but if decide to purchase something on my recommendation because you think it will be awesome for your family, it will be awesome for me too!
