*My Disclosure Policy*
I just wanted all of you to know that the below “Disclosure Statement” is a generic disclosure statement that is required by law, but I also want all of you to know that what I post (myself) on this blog that it is my opinion and mine alone. I do get a few cents per click for coupons and things of that nature, but it’s not much. I make about fifty cents per HOUR. Can you imagine that?? It’s not about that for me. I didn’t know that I could make any money blogging when I first started. I just wanted to stand on the rooftops and shout out what I knew about saving money to the world, but then I realized how much time and energy went into it! I do, however, make a little and I am required (by law) to tell you so. You all rock. Thank you so much for supporting me and TheThievingBear.com!
