CSN Stores~ $40 Gift Card Giveaway~ How DeLIGHTful! :)

Now this is fun! I have won a few little giveaways over the past couple of years, so it is really nice to be able to offer one to my readers! :)

The folks at CSN stores (There are over 200 different stores! WOW!)  have an incredible number of items and options to browse through, and their prices seem reasonable as well(in fact, some of them are most excellent!). I was checking out their solar lights , since our neighbors have installed some great lighting in their landscape.
Solar+Charged+FlashlightLook at this fun little item that caught my eye ~  could be great for camping! I mean... wouldn't the kids get a kick out of a solar charged flashlight? (It claims to hold a charge for 3 hours... I wonder if that would be just about right? )




Snug+Fit+Swing+Seat
Of course, next I felt the need to browse a couple of other stores, and I think I know where I'll be picking up some replacement swings for the little guy!

This is what we have(not  so great for the grown-ups that want to swing, or for the toddler that slips off)


These are what I'm looking at~
Deluxe+Swing+Belt+in+Blue Extra+Duty+Swing+Seat
            A.  $36.95                         B.   $27.99 
Sling+Swing+with+Chain+in+Green Stand+'N+Swing
          C.   $27.99                     D.  $19.99-$24.99

Looks like fun, eh? ;)
So... on to the $40 Giftcard Giveaway~

      I like the standing swing, though perhaps a regular one might get more use? If you have more than one swing on the set, I'd lean towards variety with a standing one!

      The standing swing is cool, BUT I envision too many injuries! So, I pick the green one. Seems like it would stay looking newer the longest.

      Kimberly Kovach said...

      Google friended you at the Acorn or Nuggets of Gold blog. Actually thought I had before as I have read you on various occasions.
