CSN Stores - A Giveaway!

Have you had a chance to check out CSN Stores? They offer an amazing range of products in their over 200 stores. You can find products like games, art supplies, strollers and swing sets for kids, products like flooring, bathroom fixtures and vanities for home improvement projects, and even supplies for your pets.

My biggest challenge when shopping at CSN Stores generally is deciding what I want to buy. With so many different products to choose from, it makes choosing that much harder.

Tonight, I was exploring their flooring store. I have carpeting in my dining room and would love to replace that with a wood floor. They have several options in both laminate and hard wood flooring. I think I will wait until spring to do this home improvement project, but have bookmarked a couple that I liked.

Then, even though we have been having a warm spell and the snow is finally melting and I hope to get the kids outside to play some more, I was exploring the arts and crafts section in their toy store. Why? Because I have lived in Ohio long enough to know that it will be cold and snowy again before winter is over, even if the groundhog didn't see his shadow. Plus, next likely comes a wet spring, with plenty of rainy afternoons that I will need to fill with activity. While exploring, I found that they have these Melissa and Doug Jumbo Coloring Pads in pink and blue - which I think would make a nice option to entertain the kids on a cold and snowy or rainy day.

Giveaway!
