Disclosure and Privacy Policy

Hi everyone, thanks for visiting Balanced Frugality!

As you may or may not know, I’m Brittany and I’m the creator and writer for Balanced Frugality. As the sole owner, I need to talk about some boring legal stuff that concerns this website. Please bear with me as I go through all this and feel free to contact me if you have any questions whatsoever!


As much as I love this site and talking about money and other related topics, I’m not an expert or a financial planner. I merely write about my experiences, views and opinions. Please consult with your own financial planning and do your own research before you make any financial decisions.


In order to support my blog, I may chose to include sponsored posts, affiliate links or advertisements. For purposes of this disclosure, a sponsored post is when I am given compensation in exchange for writing or publishing a post. Affiliate links are links to products where I will receive some sort of compensation if someone choses to purchase it, at no cost to the purchaser. Ads are well, ads. If you click on them, you will be leaving this website to go to a site that I am not responsible for.

All other sites I link too that is not Balanced Frugality is not owned nor managed by me. Specifically, Amazon and the Amazon logo are trademarks of Amazon.com, Inc. or its affiliates.

Although I have chosen to monetize my website, there are some things I promise you in exchange: 

  • I will never ever post anything that I do not actually endorse. If I don’t like a product, then it’s not getting promoted on my website. Period.
  • My views and opinions are not for sale and never will be. If I say I like a product, that is because I like it. Not because I getting paid to say it.
  • Every page that has sponsored content or affiliate links will be clearly labeled as such at the top of the page. This way, if you don’t want to read it, you don’t have to.

This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).

You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences with internet security programs.
