Thrifty in the Kitchen is a blog that is dedicated to bringing you family-friendly recipes that make the most of your grocery dollar.
Why is Thrifty in the Kitchen Free to access?
Thrifty in the Kitchen is free to access because of the use of personal funds, affiliate, and advertisement income. At this time, I use mostly personal funds to host the website, pay for needed ingredients, and other expenses that come with running a website. In order to keep the content free and available, Thrifty in the Kitchen will pursue both affiliate and advertising income, at no additional charge to you.
How Is Thrify in the Kitchen Funded?
Affiliate Income: When you buy a product or service that is suggested on Thrifty in the Kitchen, we get a small commission at no additional charge to you.
Advertising Income: As our page views increase, advertisements will become a larger part of our total income. These advertisements may collect cookies to provide targeted ads to you. Advertisements will take the form of banner or sidebar ads.
Affiliates and Commission
I only recommend products that I believe will add value or I have personally tried and loved! When I recommend a product, you are in no way obligated or expected to make a purchase: even if you click a link!
You may see a banner-style advertisement, or it may be an internal link in my blog post/recipe itself.
When you click on a link, you are tagged with a special cookie in order to track the referral back to the blog (which is how we make money). If you end up making a purchase, we are paid a referral fee or commission at no additional cost to you.
Does It Cost Me Money?
Like mentioned above, all of this is at no additional cost to you. In some cases (like when you use a referral code), it may actually save you money!
Do You See My Personal Information?
No, I don’t see any personal information! I don’t see anything like your name, email, address, credit card, or anything else.
The only thing that I can see is that a purchase was made by an anonymous user, the date, and time of the purchase.
How You Can Help Thrifty in the Kitchen
Web hosting and keeping our domain name costs money, and I spend a lot of time developing recipes, photographing, editing, and promoting. It takes a lot of work! If you’d like to help out, you can support us by continuing to browse the website, as well as making purchases as they pertain to you!
We are signed up as an affiliate on Amazon.com; you can click this link and we will get a commission from any purchase you make.
If you are looking to buy kefir grains, sourdough starters, or other fermenting/culturing items, you can click our link for Cultures for Health as well!
Thank you so much for your support!
