Common Sense with Money is a personal blog written and edited by me (Mercedes Levy). The sole purpose of CSWM is to help you stretch your hard earned money and help you live well for less. While I really love and have fun scouring the web to bring all of these deals, coupons and tips to you, I spend a lot of time every day (and even during weekends) doing so. In addition to my time and effort, I also incur monthly costs for the general up keeping and running of this site that it’s completely FREE to YOU.

Since I would never charge for the information and resources I bring to you, I need to recuperate my costs in some other way. As a result, sometimes when you click on a link I share on this site I may receive a small compensation for you doing so. This blog also accepts forms of cash advertising from third party ad networks. I sometimes also accept and keep free products, services, travel, event tickets and other forms of compensation.

The compensation received will never influence the topics or posts made in this blog. I will always make sure that content or post remains relevant to you and this blog and it’s something that brings YOU value. I will only endorse products or services that I believe, based on my expertise, are worthy of such endorsement.

The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own (Mercedes Levy). Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.
