    The Cutting Edge

    Some time ago, I was contacted by a company called CSN Stores asking if I’d like to review a product from one of their sites.

    Then, a few weeks ago, I received another offer to review a product, or host a give-away. As you might imagine, I jumped at the offer. I asked if I could do a review and host a giveaway and they said, “Yes! What a great idea.” Only they didn’t really say that, but they did agree.

    They have over 200 stores and offer just about you or I or anyone else for that matter could dream of. They have entire sites dedicated to pressure washers, rugs, massage chairs, and even dutch ovens. Sadly, I am still not not reviewing (or giving away for that matter) a massage chair. However, if you know anything about me and my never-ending pursuit to get a Saturn Sky for free, you know that I never give up.

    I scoured the CSN sites and decided on something, then changed my mind, then changed my mind again.

    I finally decided on these…

     If you’re reading here and thinking this whole review/giveaway of Ginsu knives is a bit weird, well, I’d say you’re probably right.

    If you’d had the kind of bad luck I’ve had with knives though, you might understand. I received a set of knives when McDaddy and I got married back in 1998. Then, I received a set for Christmas a few years ago. Both sets were pretty cheap and within months they wouldn’t cut squat. Well, actually they would cut squat, but not very well.

    I don’t have a long list of requirements for a set of knives except that they cut really well.

    I used the Ginsu knives a few days ago when I made Cola Chicken. The knives have really cool blades and stainless trim AND they are super sharp which is good because hello, cut much? They really worked for me!

     As I mentioned earlier, this is a review AND a give-away.

    To win, head over to CSN Stores and head back here to tell me one of your favorite products!

    In the interest of full disclosure, I received a set of Ginsu knives to facilitate this review, and a lucky reader will receive a set of their own, however, the opinions expressed in this post are my own.

    When Knives Excite You…

    Some time ago, I was contacted by a company called CSN Stores asking if I’d like to review a product from one of their sites.

    A few weeks ago, I received another offer to review a product, or host a give-away. As you might imagine, I jumped at the offer.

They have entire sites dedicated to pressure washers, rugs, massage chairs, and even dutch ovens. Sadly, I am still not not reviewing (or giving away for that matter) a massage chair. *But I’ll keep my fingers crossed!

    Ahem.

    Instead, I chose this…

    Folks, when a knife set excites you, well, let’s just say it’s bad.

    Stay Tuned…

    In the meantime, head over to CSN and check out the massage chairs, the hot plates, the water pumps, or one of my personal favorites, SHOES! There is truly something for everyone!

    Dressing Up!

    Some time ago, I was contacted by a company called CSN Stores asking if I’d like to review a product from one of their sites.

    You might remember that they even have an entire site dedicated to bedroom furniture sets.

    After hours of looking on their sites, I settled on a laundry center because for quite some time I’ve been looking for something to put in the toy room that would hold dress-up costumes. I first thought I would purchase some type of pegboard, but then it dawned on me that in a few short years my boys would no longer be dressing up in costumes and then I’d have some sort of pegboard about four feet up the wall and that would probably look goofy.

    Just as I anticipated, the laundry center works perfectly.

    When it arrived, I opened the box to find 23 pieces.

    McDaddy was busy and as is always the case, I didn’t want to wait because I like everything done RIGHT NOW.

    I started ripping open hardware baggies and unpacking poles and I was sure I could put it together all on my own.

    Within minutes I had the thing together.

    Then, I noticed the poles were crooked and the last set of screws would not go where they needed to go. So, I took it all apart and followed the directions this time.

    I asked the boys to round up all of their play costumes which was a big job because they are scattered all over the house.

    I was thrilled that the costumes not only fit in the hamper, there is actually plenty of room in case they add to their dress-up collection.

    In addition to that, it looks fabulous in our toy room.

    A big thanks to CSN for allowing me to review one of their products.

    Bloggity Business with CSN Stores Dot Com

    I was recently contacted by a company called CSN about the possibility of reviewing one of their products. They have over 200 stores and offer just about anything you or I or anyone else for that matter could dream of. They have an entire web-site dedicated to bedroom furniture sets and strangely enough one dedicated to massage chairs of all things.

    Sadly, that’s not what I’ll be reviewing.

    Instead, I’m waiting for one of these….

    And so is our toy-room.

    Stay Tuned…

    In the meantime, head over to CSN and check out the massage chairs, or the hot plates, or water pumps, or one of my personal favorites, SHOES! There is truly something for everyone!
