Hurray! $50 csnstores.com Giveaway!


Giveaway is now over!


I have some very exciting news for you! csnstores.com contacted me and wondered if I would be willing to do a giveaway or product review on my blog. I chose the giveaway because I wanted to be able to thank you, my readers, for honoring me by taking the time to read what I post. I do really appreciate you all and when you actually take that extra little step and leave a comment, it really makes my day. I enjoy learning things from you and learning more about you through those comments. And just for whatever it's worth, I'd love to "meet" some more of you through the little comments option!

Anyway...this was about a giveaway wasn't it? Well, here's the deal. One of you will win your choice of one product worth $50 or less from the huge selection from csnstores.com. And I am serious when I say huge selection! You will be able to find everything from bedding and kitchen gadgets, to entertainment centers and nursery decor, to children's toys and clothing, to you-name-it-they-probably-have-it!

I really enjoyed perusing their websites and found lots of very neat things. Just for some ideas of what that $50 might get you, here are some items that caught my eye.

Melissa & Doug Cutting Food Box Play Set

Settlers of Catan Board Game

You have four different ways to enter the give away and each thing counts as a separate entry. Please leave your email address with each entry! The giveaway will end 4/12/10 at 10 a.m. (EST) and the winner will be chosen via random.org. I will then notify the winner by email and they will have two days to respond before the next winner is chosen.

1. Leave a comment telling me any random thing about yourself. It can be something you enjoy, where you live, how you discovered this blog, a pet peeve, a money saving idea-whatever you please- but I'd like to learn a bit about you!

2. Become a follower of this blog (see top left hand corner of blog). If you are already a follower, give yourself an extra entry by posting that in a comment.

3. Subscribe to this blog (see top left hand corner of blog). If you already subscribe, give yourself an extra entry by posting that in a comment.

4. Tell other about the giveaway via Facebook, Twitter, or your blog and leave a link to your post in your comment.

  33. My husband and I are Navy veterans and the parents of 4 kids ranging in age from 17 to 10. The kids are 3 boys and one tough as nails gal who keeps the boys in line(seriously they'd rather tick each other off then make their sis mad)We live in SW Va. My hubby presently works for Norfolk Southern so frequently spends time away from home(although nothing like a 6 month deployment anymore thankyouverymuch).

    Oh and I keep seeing these CSN giveaways and they are driving me cra-zy. So many neat things.

  63. This would be lovely to win! One of my favorite pleasures is shopping online. I avoid the hassles and crowds of stores. And I have time to think carefully over a purchase before buying. Random fact about me: I love spring and I always know it's arrived when I can wear flipflops and I break out my bright orange nail polish.
