Disclosure & Privacy Policy


Disclosure

The purpose of Thriving Home is to resource and equip moms to be intentional at home. We love to share healthy recipes, freezer cooking tips, money-saving ideas, favorite books and resources that we use in our own homes, and much more.

We have a number of expenses associated with running a blog of this size — server space, tech help, and more. So, sometimes when we genuinely recommend a product or book, we use what’s called an affiliate link through Amazon or another online outlet. That means we get a small commission when the product is purchased through that link at no additional cost to you. We also work with a few brands to create sponsored content from time to time, but always make that very clear at the top of a post.

We never suggest a product or service or brand that we don’t personally use or would use ourselves. If it won’t benefit our readers, we won’t share it–no matter how much someone is willing to pay us to do so.

Our readers are our first priority. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are solely ours. We will do our best to always be honest and forthright in what we share.

If you ever have questions or concerns, please drop us an email. Honesty and integrity is of top importance to us.
