September 2017 Amazon Affiliate Update

With your help I have earned $3,784.28 so far (in the past 9.5 months!) in support of my advocacy work from your clicks on my Amazon Affiliate links – mostly through my #SaferChoices posts! [That’s an average of $315.35 a month!]

Please consider starting your holiday shopping with my Amazon affiliate links. TIA! To start, maybe grab yourself some pumpkin buckets! 

With each affiliate link purchase (from Amazon) I earn a percentage of what you buy at no extra cost to you!  For an update of how much I have earned each month from the affiliate program since starting as an Amazon Affiliate last December, please scroll down.  This is a fun & easy way to support my advocacy work, by shopping on Amazon as you normally would.  Thank you!

BTW, you don’t have to buy what I recommend for me to get a percentage of your purchases, just click on any of my Amazon links before you start shopping and I will get a percent of whatever you spend!

Note re: Pumpkin Buckets: I have never found any of these to have lead as they are specifically designed to be sold for and used by children and it is rare for new children’s items to test positive for lead in light of the CPSC regulations. I will be writing up a recommended lead-free Halloween shopping list shortly and when it is up I will link it here!

As always, if you have any questions please let me know!

Thank you,

    I always assumed these were toxic, since they were so popular in the 1980s (that’s when I was little). We use wooden baskets instead but its nice to know for the years I did let my son use one that it was probably safe…although he might have used my 1980s one some which probably was toxic.

      It is possible that the ones from the 1980s were toxic! I haven’t tested those. All of the ones I have tested recently have been negative for lead though. Most plastic in the 1980s was toxic in some way! (lead, cadmium, arsenic!)

    it would be helpful if clicking on the pumpkin picture linked to amazon. i think prior affiliate posts that was the case (e.g., the bunny and astronaut)
