Come celebrate with me! A CSN Giveaway!

I have been trying to think of a good idea for a giveaway to celebrate reaching 100 followers, and then yesterday I was contacted by CSN, and was asked if I would like to do another review, or possibly a giveaway.

Last time I chose to do a review, but since I was looking for a good giveaway already, I figured this was perfect!

I have worked with CSN once before, and I was impressed with the variety of items they had to choose from.

They even had the KitchenAid mixer that I want! (At 100 dollars less than retail.)

I searched through their bookshelves, because as a homeschooler, I always need more bookshelves, don't you?

They have a great variety of home office furniture if you are looking to set up, or remodel your homeschool room.

I settled on a set of 12 mobile drawers that I thought I would use for workboxes. I actually ended up using them for a different purpose. I use them to keep all of our school supplies in, such as paper, pencils, scissors, glue, tape, etc.
I am really happy with them for this purpose.

All, this to say that I am happy to be able to announce that I am offering a giveaway to CSN in the amount of $45. You can really find a lot of useful things on their site.

The last time I was looking through their sites, I found many things that had free shipping! Even a lot of their bookshelves had free shipping, so even if you wanted a heavier item, you may not have to worry about shipping. Not every item has free shipping, but a lot of items do.

If you would like to be entered for a chance to win this CSN gift card worth $45, all you have to do is leave me a comment on this post. I would love to know what you feel is your number one organizing item for your homeschool room.
(Don't forget to leave me a way to contact you.)

For additional chances to win:
*Follow my blog, and leave me a comment letting me know you are now following, or let me know that you already follow.
*Post about this giveaway, and leave me a comment letting me know that you posted, and where I can find the post.

This giveaway will end on Monday, Feb.14th 2011,  at noon. I would love to bless someone with a Valentines gift!  If the winner does not respond back to me by the morning of  Wednesday, Feb. 16th 2011, a new winner will be chosen.

I'd love to win. Bookshelves are my #1 organizing tool.

I think my built-in bookshelves are my best organizational tool. Bookshelves in general, actually!

I would love to win the soda stream or money towards it.

I would love to win, too! I use my bookcases the most, too. I have 6 full-sized ones in my family room which all house schoolbooks of various types.

My #1 organizing tools are bookshelves, and our cubbies (where we keep books and material that we are using daily).

My #1 organizing tool for homeschool is milk crates with hanging folders. I keep our work in there, my kids each have one to use, and our portfolios are kept in one and added to each week.

I love CSN! I've shopped there many times, it's great!

Kristi said...

Wow! They give you $45 and you turn around and give it away. How wonderful. :)

Other than my weekly school spreadsheet that helps me know what on earth we are doing, I would have to say the file cabinet brought down, cleaned out and re-stuffed is my BEST weapon for organization at this time. :)

Hide it away in an accessible but orderly fashion, seems like a great motto in life. :)

Right now I don't have a school room and my best organizing tool is my buffet. However, if I had a school room my organizing tool would be bookshelves and rolly cart cabinets (for supplies)

I would love to win :0) I have a big cabinet in my schoolroom that is my #1 organizing tool besides bookshelves. The best part is, it was free! My neighbors were going to take it to the dump when they moved, sure am glad I asked what they were doing!

My #1 tool is my clipboard with my checklist. It ensures I get everything done I had hoped to.. not just homeschool work but housework too. I get a kick out of checking everything off one at a time.

April said...

I follow you...

My number one is the cabinets in our study. They are dedicated solely to homeschooling. That and plastic "buckets" to hold the boys current books.

We use baskets to keep our books and binders. It works for us, though we don't officially homeschool.

Cardboard boxes because I seem to get so many things in the mail! I fold their flaps in and turn them on their sides. They work great as mini bookshelves :) Of course, I'm always trying to improve my organization skills lol

I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which men are not increasingly occupied with the Word of God must become corrupt."
