My Latest CSNStores Purchases!

As many of you know, CSN is an online mall of stores with great selections and prices.  For instance, they have an incredible selection of  kitchen bar stools!  CSN is a favorite site of mine to go shopping for a variety of things!  Here are the latest examples!
After much deliberation, I decided to purchase a Chef's Knife.  I have some OK knives in my kitchen, but after attending a great cooking class in September, I knew I needed a better knife for the kitchen.  Thus my decision. This will be my special go-to knife.  After looking awhile, I decided to get this one:

It's the Calphalon 8" Chef's Knife and it's a beauty!  I will now be able to slice and dice like Rachael Ray in the kitchen!  So yes, I'm very excited.  But that's not all!

I have long been eying cowboy boots.  They look so comfortable and stylish at the same time.  And with winter coming up, I need something I can throw on and still look OK at work.  So, yes, I got these gorgeous things:
Laredo Women's Basic Cowboy Boots in Black
And because I was still thinking about the kitchen, I really fell in love with this spice rack.  Did you know that you should never store your spices above the stove?  The rising heat will cause the spice oils to dry out and go rancid!  Well, guess where all mine are?  Until now...I got the Spectrum Euro Wall-Mounted Spice Rack In Black!

These purchases are definitely some things this gal needed!  I'm going to be enjoying these for a very long time!  Oh, did I mention CSNStores also has a great selection of kitchen bar stools?    And please stay tuned right here for another great giveaway sponsored by CSNStores.com!

Love the boots...check!
Love the knife...check, check!
Love the spice rack....oh heck yeah, check, check, and CHECK!

I love that sleek spice rack and I have never had one. Mine are stored RIGHT to the right of my stove on the bottom shelf of my cupboard where a ton of heat gets to. NOW I know why my cooking is SO bad!!! Haha...just kiddin'.

Calphalon knife...have heard there is none better! Someday when kids are all gone...I will be able to afford a few of these luxuries!

thanks for reviewing some great CSN items for us!

CSN has way too much to pick from its so overwhelming!! Love the spice rack and how it mounts on the wall to give you more counter space

I don't consider myself a cowboy boot kind of person [New Englander that I am], but I have to say, those boots are REALLY nice! :)

I totally love csn stores! They always have such competitive pricing too!
I think your spice rack choice was really cute, and would love to have one of those someday also.
For now, I have my eye on a presto griddle :)

CSN seriously has everything a gal would want, need, or love to own! I have been doing all of my Christmas shopping on CSN (all for my son and family members) - but, I have my OWN wish list which I will be purchasing for myself after the holidays. Can't wait! They have everything from a new pair of shoes to new bath towels for the home.
