Sure seems that way... and a popular one seems to be the gift cards from CSN Stores. And whattaya know, I was offered a chance to participate! So of course I had to sneak online one more quick time to fill you in.
My choice was to do a review on a product or to give y'all a chance to win a gift card, of course I chose you guys! So hang on and at the end of the post is a contest... now to think of a contest while I ramble away ;)
I will totally admit that when I first got the e-mail I put it aside. I myself hadn't heard of CSN so I wasn't sure if it was legit. Add on the packing (and packing and more packing and stress) of moving and I just didn't have time to look into it.
Well the other day I stole a few moments of computer time and was catching up on e-mail, and there was that CSN one. So I checked it out and man oh man is there a lot of stuff! I made mental notes of some things that I want for the new place. Almost anything for house, yard and critters. Okay so they need a horse area but there is a spot for dog and cat items, and what horse person doesn't have a dog, a cat or both?
I have to say I was drooling over the lighting. Something I never thought I'd say!
(then again I never thought I'd suggest pots & pans as a gift for myself either lol)
But our new place is quite a lot darker inside due to smaller windows and lots of trees.
Track lighting seems to be leading the way for improving the basement. Did that make you cringe? When I think track lighting I used to think "ugly, old, outdated" but not after seeing some of the gorgeous fixtures at CSN. They've got a huge selection from classic to funky and more in between. Once I get settled in after the move I'll be spending some time narrowing it down to a couple I really like then I'll let Pie have his say. ;)
While I have him looking at lighting I'll get him to peek at the pet supplies and the fire pits and the porch swings... oh yeah and they have those pots & pans I want too. Really with 200+ stores we could do a lot of shopping online to dress up our little ranch :)
Okay folks here's the deal... for a chance to win a $40 gift certificate* good for any of the 200+ CSN Stores give your best guess at answering this:
Pie & I are adding at least one new critter when we move. We have talked about a few different options, both in RL, via blog and e-mail, so there is more than one "correct" answer. Tell me in the comments section what do you think the new addition will be?!
The contest will close at 11:59pm this coming Wednesday, June 2/10. I am hoping to have my internet hooked up and working by Wed. afternoon but to play it safe the winner will be chosen at random and announced Friday, June 4/10.
*just a note that there may be shipping fees or international charges. Something to keep in mind for the winner when they go shopping.
And now I'm off to yet more packing...
