CSN Stores Review

Alright, I know you have all been anxiously awaiting this review, right? You know, all 2 of you who read my blog. Anyway, I was happy to get a chance to review another product from CSNStores.com. I chose to get a few things, a hose reel cart because I hate lugging hoses around by hand whenever I need to water the garden, and a cute tote box thing for Nathan's toys that we keep in the family room.

We chose the Suncast Hosemobile Hose Reel Cart. It can hold up to 225' of hose. We put 2 regular garden hoses on it. It was a bit difficult to assemble but easy to use after that. With one hose it was easy to move around but with two it is a bit harder. But I have really enjoyed not having to haul hoses by hand and worrying about them getting tangled up and all over the place. Our shed is cleaner now that we don't have hoses all over and I can quickly roll out the cart when needed and roll it back so our dog doesn't chew it up. The hose unrolls and rolls back up quite easily too, even the kids can do it.

The second item was the Skip Hop Bin-Go Large Storage Bin in Ice Blue. We had a little white plastic basket we were using for Nathan's toys in the family room, but it wasn't big enough and I wanted something cuter. I was pleasantly surprised to see that this bin is actually even bigger than I thought. It holds all the loose toys and fits perfectly in the open space beneath our movie shelf. Plus it has handles on the side so it's easy to pull out and move anywhere I want it. It's sturdy canvas and I like that the white/blue combo doesn't stand out too much in our neutral colored room. I really love this storage tote and would love some more for the boy's play room, or for quite a few other organizing things. The smaller tabletop organizer would be perfect for putting diapers and wipes in to have easy access anywhere.

As always, the shipping for the items was quick, I received both within a week. I am very happy with both items and with my experience so far with CSNStores.com.

*Disclaimer: I received a $50 code to use to buy any item(s) I wished from CSNStores.com to review honestly. The opinions in this review are my own.
