Affiliate Links

Please note that some of the links I use both on this website, and on social media, are affiliate links. At no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission if you decide to make a purchase after clicking through the link. Please understand that I do not link to items purely because of the small commissions I make if you decide to buy something through my links; however, online marketing and running a website does cost money, and therefore, these small commissions do help.
