Who Wants $50 Bucks? {GIVEAWAY}

The folks over at CSN Stores offered me a $50 credit to their store that I could use one of two ways - either for myself where I'd post a review of the product I selected, or as a giveaway to AFOMFT readers.  Call me crazy, but I chose to give it to one of you!  Yup, that's how much I love you guys.

CSN Stores is made up of more than 200 different sites that sell everything from dining room furniture and home goods to toys and handbags.  And I'll be honest - after browsing their stores, there were so many fabulous things that I wanted for myself that it was really hard for me to give up that credit.  But then I thought of you, dear readers, and tried to be strong.  Or something like that....

So what did I have my eye on?  I love kitchen goodies so this Le Creuset 10-Quart Roaster was high on my list.
And it's on sale from $112 to $49 so it would have been free.  Free!

Every time I watch Rachael Ray (which I admit is almost daily), I lust after her "Bubble and Brown" cookware.  At CSN Stores, her two-piece Stoneware set is just $35. 


Buy these and you've still got another $15 to spend on something else!
I'm always a sucker for pretty bedding and the Lawrence Home Fashions Notte set would look lovely in our bedroom.


And we've got a few trips planned this summer, so a pretty carry on like the Amy Butler Graceful Traveler would come in very very handy.

But enough about things for me.  When I clicked over to the babies and kids stuff, I saw the Kidcraft Personalized Sling Bookshelf which would be a welcome addition to our living room.


Then I found the Banzoongi Kids Learning Cottage Play Tent :


Gabrielle and Alaina would go nuts for that!  And at just $55 with free shipping, it would only cost $5 after the credit. Who could turn that down?!

The truth is that after finding so many fun options for the $50 CSN Stores credit, I realized that I'd never be able to choose what I wanted so my loss is your gain!  Think you can decide on one thing to put it toward???


Then show me what it is!  To enter to win the $50 CSN Stores credit, visit any of their 200+ websites and post a comment here telling me what item or items you'll put the credit toward if you win along with a link to it (this is mandatory).  PLEASE NOTE: The $50 credit CANNOT be put toward shipping costs but it can be applied to a more expensive item if you'd like to pay the difference.  For additional entries:
