As many of you know, I do a lot of reviews and several giveaways here on Life with 5 monkies. And while most posts include a Disclosure in them, I wanted to make a site wide disclosure policy available. Not only will this benefit you the reader, but me and the companies who visit my site as a potential partner.
Here at Life with 5 Monkies I strive for honesty in each and every review. All reviews are my own opinions. Or my kids/significant others opinions. While I try to post positive reviews and try to find a positive in each product sometimes it can’t be helped but to come across a bad apple. And yes you will find a post or two about bad apples on here. I stand by the fact that ANY and ALL opinions IMPLIED or DIRECTLY EXPRESSED are our own. Below you will find my official disclosure policy.
