Silly Disclosure:

Jump to full disclosure

Online versus local

Sometimes I show you what tools and tricks I use in every day life.  Those tools might be attached to an affiliate link.  I tend to buy a lot of my books at Amazon dot com.

Why do I do that?  What about the local stores?  I try to buy local when I can but I’m feeling as though the stores are starting to not have the items I want.  They are tending to go with what is trending and I’m getting to the point, I don’t even want to go to the local store because it’s a time-wasting endeavor.  I still go, but I’m feeling less satisfied every visit.

So, sometimes I will put an affiliate link in my posts.  These affiliate links help offset a small portion of the costs associated with running Dishes Delish!

Clicking a link and what it means

If you click on any of the links that I post, they will fling a few pennies at me and I have to scramble around picking those coppers up and placing them into my piggy bank.  So know that I appreciate it when you click on a link even if it is tough on the knees.

Please know that I will not link to any product or service that I don’t love, use myself and trust. I will never promote something just because I’m asked to.  I’m a bucker of systems and if I can’t get behind the product or service, I will NOT promote it.  Even if they offer me lots of coppers.

You can trust me on that!

Anyway, I just wanted to tell you about me and my relationship with affiliate links.
