CSN Stores Giveaway: $40 Gift Certificate

***This giveaway is now closed.   Thanks for entering.  The winner will be announced sometime on Thursday, July 15th (in a separate post). ***

Joe and I were talking at dinner the other night.  We were remembering when financial times were easier for us.  When we wouldn't think twice about buying a "gourmet" jar of pasta sauce for $8.  Heck, we'd buy 2 just to make sure we had enough for leftovers!  Oh!  The joys of living in a two-pay-check household! 

Now, with just one of us earning an income,  I make homemade sauce and get 4 or more meals for well under the price of that $8 gourmet jar!  There are other ways that we have cut back or tightened our belts.  Most of the time, I  enjoy the challenge of finding new ways to save money and be frugal, but at times there are needs for a splurge or a treat. 

One of our last BIG splurge purchases before my paychecks ran out, was a new bed.  For years, we just had our mattress on a standard bed frame.  You know, the kind that come with the mattress?  Well, when we moved from our apartment to our house, we decided it was time to get a decent piece of furniture.  And I'm so glad that we did!  It's so nice to relax in our big, beautiful bed after a long, busy day! 

Anyway, this discussion came up because we were trying to figure out what we NEED for the house.  There are plenty of things that we want for the house and most often these items go on the "wish list" and we try to get what we need the most from the list.


Of course there are the FUN items on the list. Things like a new computer or bigger TV or Central Air.  But then we have our more practical items like a refrigerator or a new stove or replacement windows for the house or even a second vehicle! 

So, for a little fun, I thought I'd ask my readers:  What's on your "wish list"? 

To add to the fun, Caitlin from CSN Stores offered me a chance to giveaway a $40 gift certificate to one of my readers!  The one-time-use gift certificate can be used on any of their 200 + websites

Cool,  huh?  I thought so! 

Now, let me just say:  I love CSN Stores! 

In March, I was given the opportunity to review this Le Creuset baking dish: 



And soon after that, received this Le Creuset Mortar and Pestle as a gift from my friend, Lisa.  It was ordered and shipped directly to me from CSN Stores.


The other day, I posted about a sale going on at BedroomFurniture.com, one of the many CSN Stores websites! 


Grace also  has some items that were purchased from CSN Stores for her birthday.  I'll be blogging about them soon!  Until then, let's talk about the giveaway details.......

My wish list item is the Josef Originals birthday figurine for ages 4 and 9. My mom bought me these as I grew up and 4 broke when I was little. Nine disappeared. I suspect my brother ;)

Anyhow...I would pick those figurines to re-complete my collection!

It may seem silly but on of the items at the top of my wishlist is a nice corner shelf. My living room is so bare so this would help out. CSN has a variety of different ones and they are all so nice!
