Back to college shopping with csn - GIVEAWAY!

 Angel Jacklyn, 
You are #41!!  
Random loves you!
Enjoy your prize!

My husband started back to college last week.  The week prior, I asked him if he needed any supplies, to which he replied, "I don't know," with a shrug.  You see, it's been a long time since we were in college!  We've lived life since then.  A LOT of life.  And we really weren't sure what all he would need!

So far, we've been lucky and haven't needed much.  One thing I'm sure we'll need soon, though, is a new laptop messenger bag or some other similar type of book bag.  We've got one that was pretty nice back when we were in college the first time around, but it's seen better days.  I've been cruising the internet a bit and came across http://www.luggage.com's selection.  They've got something for everyone!

My husband's a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to this sort of thing, so I can imagine he'd want something like this:


Of course, I'm a bit more adventurous than he is in situations like this, so I'd probably pick something like this:


My five year old is in kindergarten.  I know she's LOVE one of these purple bags if she didn't have a new backpack already!


I'm searching (always!) for the perfect cloth diapering diaper bag, too.  I am sure csn's got something I'll want to try!

There are over 200 different csn stores, so no matter what you're looking for, there's something for everyone!  AND not only that, but there's something in every price range!  I really like that feature!
csn stores has offered to give one of my luck readers a $35 gift certificate that can be used at any one of their 200+ stores!  I wish I could win!  All you have to do is follow this link and tell me, if you could choose a school bag for my husband (and price weren't an object), which would you choose?  Leave it in a comment along with your email address so I know how to get ahold of you when you win!

Do you like extra entries?

For one extra entry, simply follow me with Google Friend Connect, and leave a message telling me you did!  Be sure you leave your email address.

Want just one more chance?

Follow me on NetworkedBlogs and leave me a message telling me you did!  Be sure to leave your email address.  

Comments will close and a winner will be chosen via random.org on February 8, 2011, at 11:59am EST.

I would go for this one: Brenthaven - 2410 - Fusion III Messenger Bag in Black

because it is water resistant, and it can be hand carried plus is has a shoulder strap. It has a lot of small storage compartments in the front, as well.

It is hard returning to school both my hubby and I are doing it for the 2nd time. I think black goes well with everything/doesn't show dirt. Basically school is more fun because your life experience really makes class discussions more interesting. I follow on FB and now follow. Your choice for bag for yourself is really cute as is the one for your daughter. Cute stuff, nice site. Thx
