Disclosure Policy

The purpose of my blog is to share my experiences with you as my family strives to live a more self sufficient lifestyle. I write because I love to write, and I truly enjoy interacting with my audience and knowing I am making a difference in people’s lives. I write to share what I have learned so that you don’t have to learn by trial and error, much as we have.

Within the articles on this site and on the sidebar, you will find occasional affiliate links and paid advertisements. If you click on affiliate links and purchase an item, I will receive a small commission. There are a number of costs that come with running and maintaining a website, and the little bit of money I earn helps to keep this blog running, so I greatly appreciate your support.

From time to time I may also receive products as compensation for writing a review.  Regardless, I will always share my honest opinion.

I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
