A Big Fat THANK YOU Giveaway: CSN Stores Gift Certificate!

*********This giveaway is CLOSED! Winner announced tomorrow!****************
Today is the LAST day to enter! I’ll be closing entries at 10pm tonight and announcing the winner tomorrow! 

Have you heard the buzz about CSN stores? If not, you need to check them out. If you can think of it, most likely they sell it! Upholstered headboards, beautiful jewelry boxes, diaper bags, shoes, and so so much more. So when I decided I wanted to do something special for my readers, I ran straight to them!

Family Friendly Frugality has exceeded my wildest expectations. When I started a bit over 2 months ago, it was mainly just a way for me to channel my enthusiasm for great deals. Now I have close to 300 followers on Twitter, over 100 on Facebook and over 200 Email Subscribers. Not to mention I’ve made some GREAT friends. The blogging community is pretty much the most supportive work environment I’ve ever belonged to.

All of my friends and family who have “liked” me and suggested me to your friends and family…Thank You! Every time you share a deal or mention Family Friendly Frugality to someone else, my heart sings a little bit! It’s a bit like being held upside down:

To all my new friends, thank you. Thank you for bearing with my question after question after question. Thank you for accepting me, and reading my words and allowing me to post my ramblings on your own blog/site. Thank you.

So since this is a big fat THANK YOU post. I think there should be a thank you gift. Right? Maybe a GIVEAWAY? Sounds good to me!

CSN stores (seriously check out those upholstered headboards…gorgeous!) is graciously going to award one of my readers with a $20 gift certificate to buy ANYTHING in one of their 200+ stores!

    If I win, I will use the prize toward a rolling duffle bag or carry-on. I have purchased a number of items from CSN stores.

    Oh I love CSN stores, we bought my youngest daughter's car seat from them and got a great deal and were very pleased with the process! Looking at their website… there are so many things I am interested in, but in particular, I would love to buy some new canning supplies, they have a few pressure canners that I have had my eye on and a great food strainer that would save me a ton of time in the kitchen! Thanks for doing this giveaway!! :)
