Blogging allows me to share things with you, sometimes even about my own family, and to get things off my chest. Here’s something I could blog about, but I’ll just write it here: The FTC is making me tell you all the stuff in this disclosure and I’m not enjoying it. Why? I’m not enjoying it because, (I was taught never to begin a sentence with “Because”), I’d rather be writing a fun blog post to share with you.
Anyhow, besides sharing with you, blogging also allows me to earn income. This blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.
That said, I feel this is a good time to share with you about affiliate links, which you will see in some of my blog posts.
In my posts, (more future ones than past), you will see me linking to websites and items that interest me and, I feel, may interest you. Some of the links are "affiliate links". In the event you click on those links (or ads you may see throughout my blog) and make a purchase, I will earn a commission. Some links are for printable coupons and when you click those I, again, will earn a commission.
When I link to sites or products, it's because I feel confidently about/feel my readers will benefit from them. If I say I've tried, used, bought or ordered from, I'm speaking the truth to you. I will do my best to ensure the information I'm sharing is correct. Lastly, the compensation received will never influence the content, topics or posts made on this blog. The opinions you read are mine. If I don’t have a warm, fuzzy feeling about an item I’m reviewing, I’ll tell ya!
These are the companies I’m affiliated with at this time:
1. Amazon.com I’ll use an affiliate link when linking to Amazon. If you click on it and order items, not just the one I’m writing about in the post you are reading, within a certain amount of time, I’ll earn a bit of moolah. In other words: Bonnie’s Heart and Home is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com
2. Google You’ll see Google ads (ads generated by a third-party ad network) on my blog pages. I’ll try my best to customize them so they will advertise items that my readers will enjoy.
3. Cellfire From the website: “Cellfire allows you to clip digital grocery coupons directly to your grocery store savings cards/account. Your coupons are automatically redeemed when you use your card at checkout!” I’ll let you know updated info about the coupons (when some will expire; when new ones are released).
4. Grocery University Carrie Isaac is the creator of the audio series Grocery University (money-saving shopping tips) and the ebook From Garbage to Gourmet. I believe you will benefit from her knowledge, as I have.
5. Escalate Network Many coupons and sales that I share with you come from those companies that partner with Escalate. Escalate shares the coupons and sales info with me and I post what I feel will interest the readers of my blog. Just because I post coupons for items, doesn’t mean I use them all. I’m trying to improve my diet by eating more natural foods. If I share a coupon for an item with many preservatives, don’t take it to mean I’m using it, too. I am, remember, trying to help my readers be fiscally responsible and no two readers are exactly alike. One may be a vegetarian and the other may live on junk food. Either way, I want to help them.
You may also find links to the above on my blog sidebars. Like Google ads, some advertising is in the form of advertisements generated by a third party ad network. Other ads appear because I sell ad space on my blog. Lastly, I sometimes write product reviews for which I’m paid or I accept product payment.
The following is an attempt to sum up my disclosure. Please bear with me regarding the redundancy:

The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the bloggers' own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
Before I forget: The owner of Bonnie’s Heart and Home (that’s me), is a distributor for Young Living Essential Oils. I will be sharing about these products on my blog and you will find links and ads that will take you to my website to learn more about the products and/or to make purchases.
